Vince Vaughn gave his views on America's gun laws to GQ magazine.
Vince Vaughn has thrown his support behind the Second Amendment - the right of American people to bare firearms - despite a spate of shootings in U.S schools recently. Vaughn, who stars in the new season of True Detective, likened the amendment to "freedom of speech" and claimed that mass shootings "only happened in places that don't allow guns."
Vince Vaughn has backed the second ammendment
Asked by GQ magazine whether firearms should continue to be available to civilians for protection, the comedy actor said: "Of course. You think the politicians that run my country and your country don't have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do.

Porn stars have reportedly been cast for scenes in the second season for 'True Detective'.
Porn stars have reportedly been cast for the season finale of True Detective. According to sources, they have been hired for a graphic sex scene which will feature dozens of naked bodies. 24-year-old Amia Miley, a former porn actress from the US, has allegedly been hired along with Peta Jensen, also 24. Ironically, sources suggest they are amongst the few extras that are not completely naked for the scenes. It seems the women were not cast because of their experience in the porn industry but simply as extras.

Critics have panned the comedy and it seems audiences are also staying away from this one.
Funnyman Vince Vaughn is probably wishing that his Unfinished Business had stayed incomplete, after the comedy was savaged by critics. But to add insult to injury, now it seems audiences have also failed to see the funny side of his latest outing, leaving the actor on track for his worst opening ever for a major release.
Unfinished Business has bombed at the box office.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the comedy may only take $5 million on its opening weekend, leaving it finishing in eighth place at the box office. The low number would make it Vaughn's worst ever opening for a major release and certainly the worst for a comedy.
Following the news of his addition to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and cast of 'True Detective', Vince Vaughn has gone back to R-rated adult comedies as well.
After making his name in adult-targeted comedies like 'Swingers', 'Old School' and 'Wedding Crashers', Vince Vaughn turned to PG-13 movies like 'The Break-up', 'Couples Retreat' and 'The Internship'. But he's happy to be back on the R-rated comical scene with his new movie 'Unfinished Business'. "I would always prefer to go R if you're doing anything aimed at adults," he said. "But as an actor you're a part of a team; you're not really in charge of the rating. There are things I've done recently that have been made PG-13 once we began production. These films were supposed to be rated R but the bar got moved."
Vince Vaughn became park of the Hollywood Walk of Fame
After a period when studios were insisting on PG-13, Vaughn has seen the trend shift back toward more adult comedies. "When you're dealing with subject matter and topics that are adult-driven, you want to have that freedom to think and act like adults," he noted.

The 44-year-old actor questioned whether the Disney animation is "doing some serious damage" to his eldest child due to its characters.
Just like millions of children around the world, Vince Vaughn's young daughter, Lochlyn, is a huge fan of Disney's 'Frozen', but it sounds like the 4-year-old fan may be taking the animated fairy-tale a bit too seriously.
Vince Vaughn says 'Frozen' may be "doing some serious damage" to his daughter
While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (March 4th), the 'Unfinished Business' actor revealed his eldest child watches 'Frozen' "like it is her job" and that Elsa is her favourite character.

Urgh. Unfinished Business. Just Urgh.
Early contender! We have an early contender for worst movie of 2015 and a potential nominee for the Razzies next year. Unfinished Business - the new comedy starring Vince Vaughn and Dave Franco - has a 14% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes after a slew of excoriating reviews.
Vince Vaughn heads up the cast in Unfinished Business
It tells the story of a small business owner (Vaughn) and his two associates (Tom Wilkinson, who should know better, and Dave Franco, who probably shouldn't) who travel to Europe to close an important deal. However, the business trip goes off the trails with the boys ending up a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit. It's funny because they are two different things.
Continue reading: Is 'Unfinished Business' The Worst Movie Of 2015?
More than just a misfire, this attempt at a rude comedy goes so spectacularly wrong that it actually contradicts its own jokes even as it's telling them. But then it undermines everything as it goes along, for example indulging rampantly in comical cruelty before trying to say something meaningful about the dangers of bullying. The real question is how the cast members could have agreed to make a movie in which they all come across as incoherent idiots.
The story opens as Dan (Vince Vaughn) clashes with his boss Chuck (Sienna Miller) then quits dramatically, taking newly retired Tim (Tom Wilkinson) and airhead newbie Mike (Dave Franco) with him to start a new sales company. But after a year, business isn't good, and the future hinges on making a massive deal with Bill and Jim (Nick Frost and James Marsden). The problem is that Chuck is also bidding for the business, so Dan, Tim and Mike fly off to Maine and then Berlin to seal the deal with a handshake. Impossibly they arrive in Berlin at the same time as Oktoberfest, the marathon, a gay S&M festival and the G8 Summit, with its accompanying anarchist protest. Meanwhile back home, Dan's wife (June Diane Raphael) is having problems with the kids.
Frankly, there is so much going on in this film that it's exhausting. It's as if screenwriter Conrad just threw everything he could think of onto the page and didn't worry if it made even a lick of sense. Every scene feels interrupted by a bit of random chaos that isn't remotely amusing. And despite making a movie that's obsessed with sex, the filmmakers are unable to decide whether they want to make fun of it or are terrified of it (so they end up being both at the same time). Each time something interesting or funny threatens to happen, it's sideswiped by something so breathtakingly bungled that we don't know where to look.
