Born and raised in Illinois, Vince Vieluf attended the School of Business at DePaul University in Chicago before deciding that acting was his calling in life.

After a guest appearance on the TV series Cracker and a role in a TV movie On The Edge of Innocence (1997), Vieluf found himself with a leading role in the feature film An American Werewolf in Paris (1997). Recurring roles on the series E.R., Jesse and Friends followed, as well as roles in several more features, including Clay Pigeons (1998) starring Joaquin Phoenix and Rat Race (2001) starring John Cleese.
