Jon Favreau


Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau popped up in the unexpected hit “Swingers” in 1996 and became stars overnight. Favreau wrote the script about five wannabe actors looking for love and partying in LA during the swing dance revival. One of our FAVORITE movies, it went on to inspire Mark Wahlberg to do “Entourage” as a TV series. In fact, the Vince character in Entourage was named after Vaughn! Having noted Wahlberg’s success, Vince has been pestering his buddy Jon Favreau to write a “Big Chill” style reunion for the five guys, now in their mid-forties, from the original movie. (They want Heather Graham back, too.) According to Radaronline, the only obstacle is that they insist on having the original director Doug Liman direct this movie, and he wants a ton of money.
