Wiki

Vincent Anthony "Vince" Vaughn (born March 28, 1970) is an American film actor, producer and comedian. He began acting in the late 1980s, appearing in minor television roles before experiencing wider recognition with the 1996 movie, Swingers. He has since appeared in a number of films, mostly comedies, including Old School, Starsky & Hutch, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Couples Retreat, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Wedding Crashers.

Vince Vaughn was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His mother, Sharon Eileen (née DePalmo), a native of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, is a real estate agent and stockbroker who was once ranked as one of the United States' top money managers by Bloomberg Wealth Manager magazine. His father, Vernon Lindsay Vaughn, worked as a salesman for a toy company. His parents divorced in 1991. Vaughn has two older sisters, Victoria and Valeri. He was raised "both Protestant and Catholic" by his Catholic mother and Protestant father, and has English, Irish, German, Lebanese, and Italian ancestry.

Vaughn grew up in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, where he played football and wrestled; he has, though, called himself unathletic and "very average" at sports in high school. He then moved to Lake Forest, Illinois, where he graduated from Lake Forest High School in 1988, with award-winning writer Dave Eggers, sports agent Rob Pelinka, and fellow actor Don Tiffany. In high school, he was a tall, scrawny kid, known as a class clown and avid prankster. He was introduced to musical theater at a young age and decided to become an actor in 1987. He has credited his mother as the inspiration behind his career, saying: "I saw her overcome stuff, and I thought if you worked hard at something you'd give yourself a chance."
