Vince Vaughn as Jeff

Vince landed his first credited role in the film "Rudy" (1993). During filming, he met 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. Vince 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 would give Vince the exposure he needed to become movie star and for the first time choose the roles he wanted to take. "A Cool Dry Place" (1998) set him as a loving father, "Return to Paradise" (1998) cast him as a man having a 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 1990. In 2000 he starred in "The Cell", opposite Jennifer Lopez. In 2001, he starred with John Travolta in the thriller "Domestic Disturbance", and starred again with Jon Favreau in "Made". He recently completed work on "Old School" (2002) for Dreamworks.

Barbara Hershey is currently being lauded for her work with co-stars Geoffrey Rush and Anthony LaPaglia, in Lion's Gate's critical favorite, "Lantana". Reviewers have proclaimed that Hershey delivers a "top-notch" performance of "profound humanity" in the Australian mystery-drama that has been called "one of the best surprises of the season.

Prior to "Lantana", Barbara Hershey received both Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for her performance in Henry James', "Portrait Of A Lady", directed by Oscar winner Jane Campion. Her portrayal of the complicated and enigmatic "Madame Merle," considered to be one of the best characters in literature, won the L.A. Film Critics and National Society of Film Critics Awards for Best Supporting Actress.

Critically acclaimed for a remarkable series of performances for some of the industries most respected directors, Barbara has also had the unprecedented honor of winning the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival two years in a row.

From the beginning, Barbara brought a unique blend of intelligence and sensuality to the screen. She caused a sensation with her performance as a sexually promiscuous tease in "Last Summer", and then went on to star as a surrogate mother in James Bridges' controversial drama, "The Baby Maker". Barbara then played a barefoot train robber from Arkansas in Martin Scorsese's directorial debut, the depression era feature, "Boxcar Bertha".

"The Stuntman" marked Barbara's transition from ingenue to leading lady.

Balancing her dramatic roles with another comedic turn, Barbara worked again with Barry Levinson in "Tin Men" as the sweet, but not too bright wife of Danny De Vito.

Her tough, hard-bitten Bayou woman in Andre Kon&alovsky's, "Shy People" garnered her first Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival. The following year, her portrayal of a South African anti-Apartheid journalist in "A World Apart" won her a second Best Actress Award, an accolade that has been accorded no other actor in the history of the Festival.

Barbara reteamed with Martin Scorsese in his extraordinary and controversial adaptation of "The Last Temptation of Christ", and earned a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of Mary Magdalene.

She went on to star in Garry Marshall's hugely popular hit, "Beaches", as Bette Midler's terminally ill best friend.

In the thriller "Defenseless", Barbara worked again with Sam Shepard, and in the comedy, "Tune In tomorrow" (aka "Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter") opposite Keanu Reeves.
