While we're not quite convinced that Vince Vaughn is going to have a Vaughnissance like Matthew McConaughey did when he starred in True Detective, one thing's for certain: he's landed his best role yet as a stock photo model.

As part of a genius marketing campaign (because who doesn't love a good stock photo?), Twentieth Century Fox joined forces with iStock by Getty Images to release a set of very generic stock photos promoting Vaughn's new flick, Unfinished Business, according to AdWeek. Vaughn and his co-stars, Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco (which you might know better as James Franco's brother) are the faces behind the office-themed snapshots, which show the crew looking like mindless clones crossing their arms and applauding in unison at soul-sucking business meetings. Vaughn even has the "I'm dying inside" look down, but that might just come naturally.

Vaughn's role in True Detective may have for a split second made us believe the actor is going for more serious roles, but fear not, the plot of Unfinished Business seems par for the course when it comes to Vaughn flicks where he gets into some ridiculous and wacky hijinks. According to IMDB, the film is about: "A hard-working small business owner and his two associates travel to Europe to close the most important deal of their lives. But what began as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every way imaginable—and unimaginable—way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit."

iStock by Getty Images rolled out the first set here, which is supposed only to be used for editorial purposes, and will post the rest in coming weeks. Unfinished Business will open in theaters on March 6.
