Vince Vaughn may be up for a Golden Globe nomination for his lead role in the new film Delivery Man. The “dramedy” is a departure from DreamWorks‘ normal repertoire. Both the film and Vaughn’s work were received quite well at the premiere, recently held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
Delivery Man follows David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn), an affable meat truck driver who finds out he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. After learning that 142 of them filed a lawsuit to reveal his identity he must choose whether or not to come forward. David decides that while he may not be able to parent them, he can be their guardian angel. What follows is his mission to be a watchful eye and a helping hand for “his” kids as he meets them along the way.
Altruism is the central theme of this story. Chris Pratt, who plays Brett, emphasized on the theme saying that the film focuses on “what you can gain spiritually by giving yourself to somebody else, and making somebody else’s life better.” He was accompanied by his wife Anna Faris who was ecstatic about his comedic performance in the movie.
The entire cast felt so privileged and happy to have worked with Vince Vaughn. Cobie Smulders said, “He’s so sweet. This movie is about parenting, about what it means to become a parent and to be a parent. And he does that so brilliantly.” Bobby Moynihan continued with the accolades, “Just from working with him, he’s one of the funniest. Coming from an ‘improv’ background he’s pretty great. Seeing him do a more serious role, but still pretty funny is the best. He’s great at it.”
Make sure to see Vince Vaughn take on this change-of-pace role, it may be his best work yet. Delivery Man will pull at your heart strings and make you laugh. The feature is set to be released nationwide tomorrow, November 22nd.
