Chicago native Vaughn uses a potent combination of charm, charisma and creative acumen to offer a triple threat as an actor, producer and screenwriter. Vaughn starred in, wrote and produced the hit comedy "Couples Retreat," and starred in and produced "Four Christmases." The two films opened No. 1 at the box office and grossed more than $160 million worldwide. Vaughn also starred in the hit movies "The Break-Up," "Wedding Crashers," "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story," "Old School" and "Be Cool." Vaughn first caught the attention of critics and audiences in the cult classic "Swingers."

Actor-comedian Love made his big screen debut in the comedy film "Fear of a Black Man" in 1993. That same year, renowned director Robert Townsend cast him in his superhero spoof "Meteor Man." Love hit the big screen in several more comedies in the 90s, including "Friday" with Chris Tucker, "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate" with Martin Lawrence and in Townsend's "B.A.P.S." Love gained further recognition in the high-profile comedies "Money Talks," "The Replacements" and "Elf." Vaughn and Love first co-starred in the independent classic film "Made," and shared the big screen again in the box office hit "Couples Retreat." A native of San Diego, Calif., Love is currently touring nationwide with his stand-up comedy show "I Got Love."
