Vaughn went straight from college drama classes to his first film, the juvenile delinquent opus No Time to Be Young (1957). Though Oscar-nominated for his performance as a crippled, alcoholic war veteran in The Young Philadelphians (1959), Vaughn didn't rise to full stardom until 1964, where he was signed to play ultra-cool secret agent Napoleon Solo in the TV espionage series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (1964-1968). He swore at that time that he'd never, ever subject himself to the rigors of another television series, but in 1972 he was back to the weekly grind in the British series The Protectors. In films, Vaughn has been most effective as an icy, corporate heavy, notably in Bullitt (1968), The Towering Inferno (1974) and Superman III (1982).
Other than for his portrayal of Napoleon Solo, Vaughn is perhaps best remembered for his role as one of the seven in The Magnificent Seven (1960).
