~ Warren Vandergeld threatens the Wilson Sisters
Warren Vandergeld is the main antagonist of the 2004 buddy cop comedy film White Chicks. He is a wealthy man who is the father of the snobbish models, the Vandergeld Sisters and the mastermind of the kidnapping of the Wilson sisters.
He was portrayed by the late John Heard of Home Alone fame.
Warren realizes he and his family are in serious debt, and he needs money fast, so he decides to kidnap and hold a ransom some of the Wilsons Sisters, when Marcus and Kevin disguised as them to go undercover to stop him.
Later at the nightclub, Karen slips to Marcus and Kevin that Warren Vandergeld is really penniless, and has been taking loans from her father, which makes the duo arrive at the conclusion that Warren is the mastermind behind the kidnappings. Warren and Heath are planing to kidnap the wilson twins at fashion show.
Afterwards, Kevin and Marcus soon discovers Warren had funneled large sums of money through his modest charity, and attempt to notify Gordon, but Marcus stops Kevin and convincing him that they should personally intervene to redeem themselves.
Once at the Fashion, the real Wilsons twin exposes Marcus and Kevin to the crowds. This causes mass confusion between the quartets and audience, which Warren then uses this as opportunity to begin the kidnapping of the Wilson sisters. However, Warren incorrectly captures Brittany and Kevin, who then begins a brawl between Heath and Russ, a pair of friends hired by Warren to aid in the kidnappings as well.
Although, Warren manages to successfully capture the real Wilson Sisters. Warren then reveals his true color to his daughters and his wife. Marcus also reveals Heather and Megan Vandergeld that Warren and his family are broke, making them cry in dismay. He confesses that he had funneled the modest charity auction money into his private account, in order for his family to stay wealthy.
Unbeknownst to him, Denise Porter, (a news reporter and later unknowing romantic love interest of FBI agent Kevin Copeland) and her cameraman manages to record his confession. Realizing he has been exposed, Warren tries to shoot Denise and the cameraman, but Kevin is nearly shot after trying to protect her.
Warren then turns to Marcus and makes a last ditch attempt to kill him. However, Latrell Spencer intervenes and gets shot in the shoulder while trying to protect Marcus. Kevin finally shoots Warren and successfully captures him.
It implied that Warren and his accomplices were arrested and sent to prison for their crimes.
