A few weeks ago, Vince Vaughn appeared on the Week 7 ManningCast for Monday Night Football following Bill Burr and Barack Obama. Fortunately, he had stories of football movies to share from Rudy and Wedding Crashers, and he did not let them down.

In his first major motion picture role, Vaughn played quarterback Jamie O'Hara; however, when his character entered the game, he shared he was not actually given the opportunity to throw the ball. Eli Manning was beginning his second season in the NFL and Peyton was well into his Hall of Fame career when Wedding Crashers was released in 2005. Apparently, this inspired Vaughn's improvisation in the scene when calling plays from the line of scrimmage.
