Matthew McConaughey showing up on your doorstep with a frozen turkey is something that doesn't happen every day. Texas loves Matthew McConaughey, and we might have a lil competition now from Kentucky over who loves him more after this gem.
Since establishing himself as a worthy dramatic actor, Matthew McConaughey has had a career out of characters in deep introspection, men questioning the meaning and mysteries of the world around them. He did it best with Rust Cohle, he did it again with Cooper in Interstellar, he did it in those Lincoln commercials, and there were hints of it in ‘Free State of Jones.’ And now McConaughey is on another spiritual journey, this time in a forest.
Remember those days in high school where your regular history teacher would call in sick and some anonymous substitute would just put on a VHS of Glory or Gettysburg and call it a day? It turns out that practice is still alive and well at universities across the country, with one small difference: instead of some random recent college graduate as a substitute teacher, these students will be visited by Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey.
Just when you thought Fred Armisen’s deleted SNL finale sketch the last of Season 41 to hold you over for summer, in swoops a bonus round of celebrity Star Wars auditions!

Matthew McConaughey is a proud East Texan. The Longview-area native is quick to mention the Lone Star State in interviews and acceptance speeches. He also starred 15 years ago in a Don't Mess with Texas commercial that you probably have never seen.
