Vince Vaughn - Vince Vaughn Joins Gambling Comedy

Vince Vaughn has joined the cast of 'Lay The Favorite'.

The 'Break-Up' star will star alongside Bruce Willis, Justin Timberlake and Catherine Zeta -Jones in the Stephen Frears directed gambling comedy drama.

It is based on the memoir of Beth Raymer, and tells the tale of gamblers in Las Vegas, New York and Curacao in the last decade.

Rebecca Hall stars as Raymer, while it has been speculated Vince will play Bernard 'Rosie' Rose, who had made $2.5 million by sports gambling by the age of 18.

Bruce will play professional gambler Dink Heimowitz, while Catherine - who was recently diagnosed with Bipolar II disorder - will play his wife.

Shooting on the project is set to begin this summer ahead of a 2012 release.

Vince - who is well known for his romantic comedy roles - has seen his career slow in recent years, having only starred in three films in the last three years, including widely panned 'The Dilemma' alongside Winona Ryder.
