Somewhere in the last 10 years, Vince Vaughn decided to smooth out his edges, sanding down his hard exterior to a bland nub. His acidic work in films like Made, Swingers, and even something as outrageous as Old School is a thing of the past, if his 2013 output is any indication. As both a feature-length Google ad and as a comedy, The Internship was, at best, a forgettable attempt by Vaughn and Owen Wilson to recapture their lewd glory from Wedding Crashers. And now we have Delivery Man, a remake of the French-Canadian film Starbuck, all about a lovable, oafish slacker who turns his life around when he discovers that he’s the biological father of over 500 children.

Earlier today Vince Vaughn participated in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" session to promote his upcoming film Delivery Man. During the Q&A session, Vaughn answered a number of sequel questions including ones about Swingers, Wedding Crashers and Anchorman. While Vaughn confirmed that he will indeed be in Anchorman: The Legend Continues in theaters next month, he also shed light on a couple of his other former starring roles. Here's what he had to say. Q: Would you return for Jurassic Park 4 and wreak more havoc? A: No plans and people seem to cause a lot of havoc without me there. Q: Old School 2? Maybe? Please... A: Old School 2 nothing immediately planned although there is a script. Q: Can you tell us anything about the Dodgeball...

Ten years ago, Love Actually hit theaters, and with it came an endlessly re-watchable Christmastime collection of love stories that are actually, well, all around us. The film explored 10 separate vignettes — some heartwarming and hilarious, some tragic and heartbreaking – that saw its characters “get the sh–” kicked out of them by love. To celebrate the film’s legacy, we reached out to the film’s cast to talk about their storylines, and for the rest of the week, we’ll be sharing some of their behind-the-scenes takes.

There has been a lot of talk lately about the involvement of Wonder Woman and Nightwing in Batman Vs. Superman. Olga Kurylenko, Gal Gadot and Elodie Yung are reportedly in contention for Wonder Woman, with Adam Driver, Penn Badgley and Ezra Miller up for the Nightwing role, although neither character has been officially confirmed to be in the sequel.
Another character still yet to be cast is the villainous Lex Luthor, whose involvement was confirmed by director Zack Snyder during last weekend's online fan event. A new report has surfaced, indicating that Lost star Terry O'Quinn is on the short list of contenders to play Superman's bald nemesis.
It isn't known who else is on the studio's list. Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston was once rumored to be a front runner for the villain, although the actor shot down those rumors in September. Mark Strong was also rumored to be a contender this June, »

Billy (Vaughn) and Nick (Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation’s most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.
Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, stars of The Wedding Crashers, re-team once again for yet another man-child comedy that we’ve come to expect from the duo – especially Vaughn, who seems to have made his career out of such films (Old School, »

Over three years ago, it was revealed that Old School and The Hangover director Todd Phillips was going to produce and direct a biopic about late comedian John Belushi with a script from Steve Conrad (The Pursuit of Happyness, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), but we haven't heard anything since then. Now the project has life again, but Conrad will step up to make this his sophomore directing effort following The Promotion in 2008. In addition, Conrad is already looking for an actor to bring the large than life comedian to life, having met Emile Hirsch (Speed Racer, Into the Wild) and "Workaholics" star Adam Devine. THR also reports Joaquin Phoenix might also be in the mix, but there isn't a frontrunner out of the group just yet. Hirsch and Phoenix are interesting choices since they haven't taken on much comedy in their career. Hirsch has early work like The »

Will Ferrell's a Trojan man through and through. Returning to his alma matter at the University of Southern California on Monday, the comedian had the privilege of being the only non-marching band member in school history to dress up in the drum major's uniform as unofficial mascot Tommy Trojan. Spinning a sword around, Ferrell showed off his school pride as he led the marching band, The Spirit of Troy, in a rally as part of an event for his friend and fellow alum Craig Pollard's charity, Cancer for College, which gives students battling the disease scholarships so they can attend college. Now this is Old School! The Anchorman star's appearance came just two days after he paid a »

As a die-hard Happy Endings fan, I'm elated to see the actors moving on to such solid projects: Damon Wayans Jr. is returning to New Girl, Eliza Coupe is headed to House of Lies, there's nothing but greenlights for Casey Wilson's projects all over town and, perhaps in my most anticipated follow-up gig, Adam Pally was just made a series regular on The Mindy Project. A show that shares Happy's skewed sensibilities while luring in a more mainstream (read: larger) audience.
Pally makes his debut in tomorrow's all-new episode, titled Music Festival, as Dr. Peter Prentiss, the new ob-gyn who replaces James Franco's Dr. Leotard at the practice and as an antagonist for Mindy. I caught up with Pally to talk about his excitement over joining The Mindy Project, what lessons he's taking from the sad cancellation of Happy Endings and how Tom Hanks is his ticket to the big time.

Universal Pictures has set the release dates for the following films: Dracula - Director Gary Shore's origin story starring Luke Evans (Fast Six) in the title role will move from an August 8, 2014 release to an October 3, 2014 opening. Search Party - Scot Armstrong's directorial debut starring Thomas Middleditch, Tj Miller and Adam Pally opens September 12, 2014. Hit the jump for more on both pictures, including the reason behind the Dracula delay. We recently reported that Legendary Pictures was looking to get in on the Dracula pic as its first film under the new distribution deal signed with Universal after splitting from Warner Bros. The push back on the calendar might have more to do with getting Legendary's Ts crossed and Is dotted than any creative issues. That being said, it's possible an October release will put audiences more in the mood to see a re-vamped Drac story than the dog days of summer might have. »

Because the shock of Miley Cyrus's twerk fest at the Vma's has just worn off (five days later), we'd like to give you something else to feast your eyes on. Check out movie picks for this weekend:
On the Big Screen: "The Lifeguard"
On the verge of hitting the big 3-0, Leigh (Kristin Bell) ditches her adult life in NYC and heads back to her childhood home in the 'burbs, as well as her old high school lifeguarding job. For those of us who feel a tightening in the gut each time a friend uses the words "hubby," "staycation" or the letters I-r-a, there's something undeniably appealing about regression.
But while some reviewers have deemed a life crisis at 29 totally absurd, and others have called Bell's character a "massively unsavory brat," we get it. Thank god for 2011's "Young Adult" and even 2003's "Old School," in »

With tons of movie and TV appearances under his belt, chances are you’ve seen Jesse Heiman before. You may not know it, though, because he’s just an extra (in The Social Network, Spider-Man, Old School and more). However, you probably do remember him by face from the Go Daddy commercial that ran during the Super Bowl this year. Heiman was the chubby nerd who got to make out with supermodel Bar Refaeli (shocking millions of viewers, although it’s rather tame compared to his threesome as “lucky party goer” in The Rules of Attraction, if you ask me). Ever since that ad, he’s been more recognized and more confident. The latter result recently got him in trouble when he went a little too far trying to kiss married Twilight actress Nikki Reed, but otherwise this is a guy who could now be on the rise as a bit player.
