Vincent Anthony Vaughn was born on March 28, 1970, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA and raised in Lake Forest, Illinois, USA. His parents were Vernon Vaughn, a salesman, and Sharon Vaughn (II), a real-estate agent and stockbroker. They later divorced in 1991. He also has two older sisters named Victoria Vaughn and Valeri Vaughn. Vince was interested in theater early on and grabbed a spot in a Chevy commercial. Figuring he was set, he packed his bags and headed for Hollywood only to become a struggling actor losing role after role. He managed to hit a few spots on television, but his real goal was to make it to the big screen. He made his first credited role in the film Rudy (1993) where he met his friend Jon Favreau, who was writing a script detailing his life as an out-of-work actor. Vince was written into Swingers (1996) by Jon to play the character of "Trent". He signed on just as a favor to his buddy, not realizing it would be a career changing role. Though not a commercial success, it was a critical success in which Steven Spielberg saw him and cast him in the big budget sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997). This role gave Vince the exposure he needed to become a movie star and, for the first time, choose the roles he wanted to take. A Cool, Dry Place (1998) put him as a loving father, Return to Paradise (1998) cast him as a man having to make a life or death decision to save a friend, and Clay Pigeons (1998) cast him as an interesting serial killer. He was even cast as "Norman Bates" for the shot-for-shot remake of Psycho (1998).

The "Frat Pack" name is a reference to the film, _Old School (2003)_ (qv), featuring Vaughn, Ferrell and Luke Wilson, due to the wide number of films featuring the seven actors. Vaughn's "Frat Pack" films include, _Wedding Crashers (2005)_ (qv), _Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)_ (qv), _Starsky & Hutch (2004)_ (qv) and _Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004)_ (qv).
