Divorced from his very first marriage, Vince remarried in 2003 to Julianne Mattelig. He has pathologic nystagmus, a ailment which brings about a man or woman’s eyes to move involuntarily.
Vince made his film debut in Jim Jarmusch’s Down by Law, but his scenes wound up on the cutting room floor. He had prominent supporting roles in a number of major films, including a turn as a dimwitted Ku Klux Klan member in Mississippi Burning, Lee Bowers in JFK, and the main character’s greatest friend in Nobody’s Fool. He way too starred in Giuseppe Tornatore’s The Legend of 1900 alongside Tim Roth. He had his first lead role in James Mangold’s independent film Heavy, playing a sweet, silent overweight cook harboring a crush on a waitress (Liv Tyler).
Vince typically alternates roles of both heroic and villainous characters, like a lovable small town pub owner in Beautiful Girls, a serial killer with multiple personalities in Identity (a second collaboration with director Mangold), the disheveled gossip columnist in s1mone, and a pompous sheriff in Nurse Betty. He can also be seen in Love from Ground Zero as Walter. Vince also played a Southern cop in Angel Heart, a kidnapper’s assistant in Trapped, and a deputy prison warden in Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers.
