Vince Vaughan in "Swingers" – clearly templated on Dean Martin
Besides being the ladies' man counterpart of Jerry Lewis in a series of comedies, besides being a bratpacker, Dean Martin, in his long variety show run on NBC, made it cool to kids everywhere to be (or seem to be) dead drunk by the end of episode on national TV. The fact that America saw his show as charming and wholesome just the same is a testament not only to the culture of the time but to Martin's own great charm.
