Vince Vaughn (Frank Semyon)

A criminal and entrepreneur moving into legitimate enterprise, Frank is in danger of losing his life’s work.

Vince Vaughn has become one of Hollywood’s most highly acclaimed triple threats – as an actor, producer and screenwriter. A Chicago native, Vaughn first caught the attention of critics and audiences in Doug Liman’s independent sleeper hit and cult classic 'Swingers.' He reunited with 'Swingers' screenwriter and co-star Jon Favreau in 2001 as producer and star of the comedy classic 'Made.'

In the summer of 2003, Vaughn starred alongside Luke Wilson and Will Ferrell in 'Old School,' a Todd Phillips comedy sensation that’s now become a modern day comedy classic. In the summer of 2004, Vaughn re-teamed with Phillips to star opposite Ben Stiller in the hit comedy 'Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.' The film opened at No. 1 on its way to grossing $114 million at the box office. In 2005, Vaughn teamed up with Owen Wilson in the runaway comedy hit 'Wedding Crashers.' With a domestic box-office take of over $208 million, the New Line Cinema release is the one of the highest grossing R-rated comedies of all time and the ninth R-rated film in cinematic history to pass $200 million domestically. In addition to reinvigorating the R-rated comedy arena, the film went on to become one of the highest selling DVDs of its genre. Just one year later, Vaughn re-teamed with 'Wedding Crashers' director David Dobkin as co-producer of the holiday film 'Fred Claus.' Vaughn played Santa’s disgruntled and bitter brother Fred, who returns to the North Pole after a long absence. 

Vaughn recently wrapped production on the second season of the critically acclaimed HBO series 'True Detective' alongside Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams. Netflix recently greenlit the period family comedy 'F Is for Family,' a six-episode animated series from his production company, Wild West Picture Show Productions, based on the comedy of Bill Burr. It will debut in late 2015. In addition to producing the TBS original sitcom 'Sullivan & Son,' Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show Productions most recently finished Chris Bell’s documentary 'Prescription Thugs,' a chronicle of the legal prescription drug businesses in America. The film is executive produced by Vince Vaughn, Joel Cheatwood and Peter Billingsley; it premiered at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival and was recently acquired by Samuel Goldwyn Films. Vaughn’s WWPS also produced the documentary film 'Art of Conflict: The Murals of Northern Ireland,' which is narrated by Vaughn and premiered at the 2012 Galway Film Festival in Ireland. The documentary tells the story of Northern Ireland's history and the violent Troubles through the unique art of street murals. 

Vaughn most recently starred in New Regency’s 'Unfinished Business,' where he re-teamed with 'Delivery Man' director Ken Scott, and made a cameo appearance in Paramount Pictures’ 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues.' Vaughn’s other film credits include 'The Internship,' 'The Watch,' 'The Dilemma,' 'Couples Retreat,' 'Four Christmases,' 'Into the Wild,' 'The Breakup,' 'Old School,' 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith,' 'Thumbsucker,' 'Domestic Disturbance,' 'The Cell,' 'Psycho,' 'Clay Pigeons,' 'Return to Paradise,' 'A Cool Dry Place,' 'Rudy,' 'The Locusts,' and 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park 2.'

Vaughn resides in Los Angeles with his wife and children.
