Chatting With The One and Only Vince Vaughn of Delivery Man! #DeliveryManEvent

I solely received travel accommodations and the opportunity to attend this premiere from Disney. All opinions are my own.


Hey All!

As you all know I recently had the opportunity to attend premiere for DreamWorks Pictures’ Delivery Man. The film stars Vince Vaughn as affable underachiever David Wozniak, whose anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years earlier resulted in 533 children. David embarks on a journey that leads him to discover not only his true self but also the father that he could become.

Prior to the film I had a moment to chat with the veteran actor and I have to say it was a dream come true to meet Vince. I’ve loved him since his Swingers Days.

We chatted about why he decided to take the role as David Wozniak and the direction of the roles he sees himself taking in the future since he is now a family man.

 About taking the role he shared:

You know, the director is a very passionate storyteller and I think what he is doing with this story is really unique and inspiring, because it’s not an overly obvious way in to some very kind of sentimental and universal feelings I think about parenthood and also about life. I think accepting yourself and all those kinda things. But what’s interesting to me is nowadays movies can be just a comedy or just sentimental or just a drama and I think the skillset that Ken has, which is very unique, is that it kind of is all of those things in one movie. It makes it a very unpredictable story.  You’re not quite sure what emotion’s gonna come next.  I think being a young father, the hopes and fears that you have for your kids really is strong in those vignettes.


I shared with Vince that I though this is a very family-friendly movie, which is kind of a departure from the movies that he’s made in the past.  I was interested to know if he was actively trying to make more family-friendly movies that his family could see in the future?

You know, I don’t know if I would say I’m actively doing it. I think this was nice ’cause it was kind of a return to doing more grounded performances, which I used to do and not so broad.  So, that was exciting.  And I do think this time in my life kind of particularly made me excited about investigating parenthood.  Partnership I think is important, too.  I think the best thing you can do as a father for your kid is to love the mom in that it shows him what a good relationship should be. There’s so much teaching that’s not really downloading information that’s just by example.


It gives ‘em harmony in the house.  And it’s interesting for Cobie’s character and my character to kind of figure out how they see each other, what are the expectations, ’cause I find relationships to really be about communicating and expectations, you know.  What do you expect the other person to do and how do you communicate so that you’re both understanding what those expectations are, ’cause once you start breaking expectations and if you’re not understanding what the other person wants then trust can get broken.

My character kind of comes to a place of accepting who he is.  I can’t be someone I’m not, you know, but I love this kid and I love you, so let’s start from that place.

I completely agreed with him about being connected.

You have to figure out how do you each allow each other to follow what they wanna do.  And you’re gonna have to be good at communicating and doing things, you know.  So, I think it’s an important journey.

I do think you look at your life and your life becomes secondary at that point, you know, once a kid comes in the picture.  It’s nice for your life to be about something different.

I think that’s part of the journey as a parent at least that’s what my experience was. Who am I within this and how do I communicate with the other person?  What’s the win-win?  How do me and my wife both get what we want.  It’s just learning better skills at something that you’ve never done before.

He was so thoughtful with his answers and you got the immediate sense of how great a father he must be to his children.

At the end of the Interview Vince was kind enough to take a group shot with us.


I can’t wait to share with you my thoughts on this film. Vince is fantastic in it! I highly recommend you run out and see Delivery Man when it comes out on November 22nd! It’s truly a touching yet funny film.
