The comedy duo of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson bantered with fans and unveiled the trailer for their upcoming film, "The Internship," via an interactive video chat Wednesday. The event was streamed as a Google+ Hangout - a tidy bit of synergy given that the film revolves around two old-school salesmen, played by Vaughn and Wilson, who talk their way into coveted internships at Google in an attempt to restart their flagging careers. The Mountain View, Calif.-based Internet search giant does not have a financial stake in the 20th Century Fox movie, but did give the film crew access to its campus in September and also consulted on creating a Google-like set. During the hangout , which was hosted by talk show host Conan O'Brien, Vaughn and Wilson took questions from fans and displayed their trademark brands of humor.

Vince Vaughn is the buyer of former USC football coach Lane Kiffin's house, which recently sold in Manhattan Beach for $6.5 million. The updated 7,308-square-foot contemporary Craftsman-style home, built in 2002, appears to be another notch in Vaughn's real estate belt. He bought a Colonial-style home in La Canada Flintridge last year for $3.9 million. The Manhattan Beach house features vaulted ceilings, a stone fireplace, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The three-car garage opens to a gated driveway.

Vince Vaughn has bought a house for $3.925 million in an area of Los Angeles one might not normally associate with actors - La Cañada Flintridge. And while it may not have the celebrity cachet of Hollywood Hills, he can count actress Angela Bassett and a host of entertainment industry types among his neighbors. Plus, the schools are good. Still, it's a far cry from the three-level penthouse he had listed atop Chicago's Palmolive Building at $16.8 million until recently. His new Colonial-style home sits on three-quarters of an acre with a swimming pool and a sports court.

Google Inc. employees were a bit star struck this week as Hollywood descended on the company's Mountain View, Calif., campus to film scenes for the 20 th Century Fox comedy “The Internship,” starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. The Internet search giant gave the film crew access to its campus this week and even consulted on creating a Googley office at Georgia Tech, where the film is being shot. Apparently Google has decided the film could generate some positive publicity - with consumers and with Hollywood, where relations can be famously strained.

Vince Vaughn and his new movie, "Delivery Man," have me rethinking my vow to avoid using the description "feel-good" before the word "movie" at all costs. This is Vaughn at his most vulnerable. As much as the wisecracking actor at a different point in his career might have bristled at the description, "Delivery Man," a heart-tugging new comedy about fatherhood and family, is warm as well as wry. Yes, this is a slight film. But there's a very likable ensemble around Vaughn, led by "Parks and Recreation's" Chris Pratt as his best friend, Brett, along with wonderful Polish actor Andrzej Blumenfeld as his father, Mikolaj.

Five years ago, "Swingers" teamed Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn in a wonderfully wry comedy as a couple of guys struggling to break into Hollywood while making the trendy lounge scene in their nonstop pursuit of women. Favreau, who wrote "Swingers," has now directed and written the hilarious "Made," which re-teams him with Vaughn. The two play off each other so well that they recall fond memories of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. Shrewdly, Favreau doesn't repeat himself.

SAN FRANCISCO - As soon as the credits rolled on "The Internship," Rachel Kang, a 20-year-old UC Berkeley sophomore from Torrance, headed straight back to her apartment to Google jobs at Google Inc. "I have always loved Google. I think everyone does. The movie just cemented my appreciation even more," Kang said after seeing a sneak preview of the film last month. "I do think a lot of people will be even more drawn to the company than they are now. " That's just what Google wants to hear.

Tell someone that you're scheduled to interview Vince Vaughn at 8:30 on a Saturday morning, and you're likely to get a response along the lines of, "Yeah, good luck." Not our Vince Vaughn -- Trent, the prowling Lothario high on nightlife in "Swingers"; Beanie, the married electronics impresario desperately holding domesticity at bay with a beer bong in "Old School." No, at 8:30 on a Saturday morning, Vince Vaughn will be recovering from the exploits of Friday night, if not still living them.

This weekend, "The Internship" may become the latest star-driven movie to get beaten by a lower-wattage production. The comedy, which stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, appears set to follow in the footsteps of Will Smith's "After Earth," which last weekend failed to attract more moviegoers than its far less high-profile competition "Now You See Me. " According to those who have seen pre-release audience surveys, "The Internship" will probably...

When Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson crashed weddings with such crazy success in 2005, they wanted to get laid. Older and not particularly wiser in "The Internship," the guys now want to get jobs. That's funny. Unfortunately, the comedy is linked to some new-age nonsense about old-school guys finally catching up with the Internet age. It's a one-liner forged into a two-hour joke. At stake is a much-coveted summer internship at Google that could lead to a full-time gig. This sets up a fish-out-water tale with the 40-something goofballs essentially thrown into a school ruled by young nerd geniuses.

As Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis open their new movie,"The Campaign," this weekend, they're trying to woo a filmgoing audience that has been voting - with its feet - against comedies this season. Nearly all of their fellow big-name comedians have struggled at the box office recently. Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller bombed with "The Watch" two weeks ago. Adam Sandler, as close to a golden boy this comedic century has seen, flopped in June with the gross-out father-son pic "That's My Boy," his second consecutive disappointment after last year's "Jack & Jill.

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson may be the big names in the new comedy "The Internship," but the real star of the film is Google. The company campus in Mountain View, Calif., is the setting for the movie in which Vaughn and Wilson play down-on-their-luck watch salesmen searching for a second chance as Silicon Valley interns. Google lent its brand to the 20th Century Fox movie and let the production film two days on-site without charging location or licensing fees.
