Vince Vaughn never imagined he would someday place his handprints and footprints in cement at the world famous TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, but that all came true at the ceremony Wednesday morning.

“I remember being a young kid – I came out [to L.A.] when I was 18 -- walking down these streets and coming across the Chinese [Theatre] and really being impressed by it and looking at all the names and all the hands and footprints and it being inspiring,” Vaughn told ET. “To be included now is a lot of fun.”

Vaughn is known for his deadpan comedic humor and iconic roles like the 1996 cult classic Swingers and 2005’s Wedding Crashers. But Vaughn is excited to turn back to drama in the upcoming second season of HBO's True Detective, where he’ll be starring opposite Colin Farrell.

“It’s a chance to do something different and we got great material to me working with and I’m really having a great time doing it,” said Vaughn. “It’s a crime story that takes place [in Los Angeles]. The characters are complicated, the world’s that you enter are very interesting. It’s a lot of fun.”

Speaking of fun, some rather hilarious stock photos featuring Vaughn and his Unfinished Business co-stars hit the Internet this week in what may be the most creative marketing ploy for a film – and we got the story behind them.

“The campaign is sort of taking a turn in a fun way to kind of represent the spirit of the movie where they're kind of fun,” Vaughn said. “I didn't even know they were doing those. I think they took images from different photos and used it -- but it made me laugh.”

Unfinished Business hits theaters March 6.
