Sunny Days for Vaughn

10.29.2008

The words "Vince Vaughn" and "drama" go together like "Daniel Barna" and "ugly"--in the sense that they dont--at all. But even I have my off days and I guess even Vince Vaughn stars in dramas. Such is the case with SUNNY AND 68, a Vaughn-starring vehicle being picked up by Universal to be directed by Gavin O'Connor, whose PRIDE AND GLORY hasn't done so well.

In any case, Vaughn will play an alcoholic poker star whose wild ways cause him to melt down on national television. Deeply in debt, he heads home to upstate New York for the first time in decades to a mother dying of cancer and a daughter he never knew. I'm assuming redemption ensues. I definitely see Vince nailing the sleazy alcoholic poker player--it's the whole redeemed thing I'm having trouble with. But with glimpses of depth in last year's INTO THE WILD, I'm sure our boy Vinnie will do fine. Just fine.
Extra Tidbit: I hope to live to see the day Vince Vaughn wins an Academy Award. The speech would be just gold.

I feel like Vince Vaughn could come out of nowhere and give a good dramatic performance one day. His only serious roles so far have been such small parts (like Into the Wild and Thumbsucker) and I really think he could pull a Jim Carrey and just knock one out of the park.

But sadly, this movie just doesnt sound like the one that is gonna do it for him.

Its already been said

Vaugh is a great serious actor, look up his movies then look up the reviews and he is well liked in most of them.

a buh?!

Wow, track, you're kind of a dick aren't you? You call someone a Troll and then say something like that? You know, no one makes you read this site.

You're probably just some failed journo who couldn't get a job and decides to blast anyone who writes for a living in order to convince yourself that you could do their job better. If you don't like their writing, then get the fuck out!

Pretty much all of the writing on this site is opinion mixed with movie news. Its what makes it

Vince Vaughn has been great in every drama he's done. The words "Daniel Barna" and "credible journalism" go together like "Daniel Barna" and "ugly" -as in you suck.

I would love to see Vince Vaughn win an Academy Award. And yes that speech would be amazing or it would be "so money".
