After the mighty four-pack of awesome movies that is Fred Claus, Four Christmases, Couples Retreat and The Dilemma, I know most of you out there are tearing your hair out for more Vince Vaughn. “I gotta have my Vaughn” has become a popular expression around college campuses and night spots. Well, not to worry Vaughnonauts, cause Vince has booked another role.
Vaughn has joined the cast of Lay The Favorite, starring alongside Bruce Willis and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Based on a book by Beth Raymer, it’s the story of a married gambling legend (Willis) who gets involved with a younger woman and figures out a system for getting an edge on Las Vegas. Sounds like he’s gambling with his money… and his marriage. That’d be twice the stakes, according to movie math. Vaughn will play the role of Rosie, a bookie from Long Island. Hopefully the role is at least somewhat money.
Stephen Frears is directing from an adaptation by writer/producer D.V. De Vincentis. (Deadline)
