He has worked in both Australia and the United States. He is of Italian descent and currently resides in Melbourne, Australia. He was previously married to Australian actress Jane Hall
Other credits include the cult movie Chopper (2000), in which he played Melbourne drug dealer Neville Bartos opposite Eric Bana, The Wog Boy (2000) Lantana (2001), Walking on Water (2002), The Nugget (2002), Take Away (2004) and Opal Dream (2006). In 2008, he starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2008 American film Body of Lies. In 2010, Colosimo starred in the sequel Wog Boy 2: Kings of Mykonos. Colosimo also appeared in the vampire film Daybreakers, starring alongside Sam Neill, Willem Dafoe and Ethan Hawke.
In 2011, he starred in the film Face to Face, and in 2012, he starred in Starz "Spartacus" Season 4, and portrays a pirate leader.
Despite several movie roles and guest roles in A Country Practice (1994), Good Guys Bad Guys (1997) and Stingers (2002), it was not until his performance as Joe Sabatini in Something in the Air in 2001 and 2002 that resulted in wider exposure. In 2003, he starred in the telemovie, After the Deluge. In 2003 and 2004, he played Dr. Rex Mariani in The Secret Life of Us. Vince also starred as himself in episode 6 of the hit ABC series We Can Be Heroes. He was chosen to play Phil Olivetti in the fictional mini-series within the show.
From 2005 until late 2007, Colosimo had guest roles in Blue Heelers (2005), MDA (2005), Two Twisted (2006) and City Homicide (2007). His American credits include popular shows such as The Practice (2004) and Without a Trace (2003).
2008 was a busy year for Colosimo. He portrayed Melbourne gangland figure Alphonse Gangitano in the Channel 9 series Underbelly (in a guest role); Channel Ten's telemovie Emerald Falls and Channel Nine's Scorched. He also appeared in Top Gear Australia's "Star in a bog-standard car" section in the first episode.
In early 2009, Colosimo appeared in Carla Cametti PD, a six-part series that aired on SBS. In 2010, he had the leading male role in the tele-movie, Wicked Love: The Maria Korp Story about the Maria Korp case.
He announced in late 2013 that he would be reprising his role of Alphonse Gangitano in the sequel/spin-off series Fat Tony & Co. which will not be placed under the Underbelly franchise (due to financing reasons) and will focus on the rise and fall of Tony Mokbel, who also featured in the original series, played by Robert Mammone.
He has a daughter, Lucia (2002), with his former wife, actress Jane Hall. Colosimo and Hall worked together on A Country Practice in 1994. He lived in Westgarth, a suburb of Melbourne, until late 2015. The mother of his second child is Australian actress Diana Glenn with whom he had a son, Massimo, in April 2014. The couple separated two months after the birth of Massimo.
In September 2016, Colosimo was charged by police after he was found in possession of Methamphetamine in Melbourne's north. In January 2017, he appeared in court where he had pleaded guilty and was fined $1000 without conviction and was put under a good behaviour bond for a year.
