    He's gotten better with age. i always associated him with fluff movies until recently. I think he finally got to the stage where he is taking more risks with characters and it's really paying off.

    I don't think Blazing saddles has anything to worry about but Seth is clever and that movie looks like fun.

    Buyer's club was excellent. I've always liked McConaughey. Even in his fluff movies he always does a good job, from Edtv to his early role in Texas Chainsaw massacre- next generation. . If you want to see a few good movies he has done recently that weren't so popular, I would check out Mud and Paperboy were excellent and killer joe ( an offbeat , low budget flick). I think they are all on Netflix.

    I read the article in the Rolling Stone (IIRC) on McConaughey recently and he had interesting start to his career in the movie Dazed and Confused (another great one). He basically talked his way into that movie with no prior movie experience. Couldn't find the article but this is similar.

    Matthew McConaughey (“Wooderson”): It was, like, a Thursday night that summer, man, and I wanted to stay in and watch some flick, but my girlfriend talked me into going out to have some drinks. There was this bartender I knew from film school who worked at the Hyatt and would give us a discount, so we went there. And when we walk in, he’s there, and he goes, “Hey, man, the guy down at the end of the bar is in town producing a film.” So I went down and introduced myself. That was Don.

    Phillips: Next thing I know, I’m having a drink with this kid and talking about golf. I think I remember him saying briefly that he was studying to be a director.

    McConaughey: Gets to be four hours later, and my girlfriend is gone, man, and Don and I are pretty lubricated. We’re talking about life and women and some great golf hole he’s played, and I guess we got a little rambunctious.

    Phillips: And a little loud, because some big-muscled, red-shirted, UT-football-player bouncer guy escorts us out of the bar. So Matthew and I went to my room and he said, “How dare they throw us out of the bar, Don. Don’t they know who you are?” And I said, “No, and they don’t give a damn either.” So he said, “You know what I’m doing? I’m calling a manager.” And he does. And he demands an apology. Wow. So after all that, I ask him if he’s ever acted before. “Naw,” he says in that Texas drawl of his. “I’ve been in a beer commercial and a music video.” And I said, “Look, I’m in town casting a movie with Rick Linklater. We have this character, Wooderson, who’s a little bit older than the high school kids. He’s only got a couple lines, so it’s too expensive to bring anybody in from Los Angeles. Why don’t you come to my office and pick up the script? Maybe we’ll put you on tape to see what you look like.”

    Linklater: I thought he was too good-looking. Matthew looked like he’d do fine with college girls; but I needed Wooderson to be a little creepier. But Matthew just sunk into character. His eyes shut to little quarter slots, and he said, “Hey, man, you got a joint?” He just became that guy. I thought, “Okay, don’t cut your hair. Can you grow a beard and a mustache?”

    McConaughey: Man, they told me to dirty down. They said that once we got started, I’d get $300 a day. That’s a lot more than I made waiting tables on Thursday nights at the Catfish Station.

    He's a character; I remember when he got cited for sitting in his apartment in Austin stoned out of his mind loudly playing the bongos naked. We saw that movie last night and I'm still exhausted by his acting. I rarely have that kind of reaction; last time I did maybe was after seeing Meryl Streep in "Sophie's Choice" and thinking "wow, no actress comes close to touching her." Killer Joe is rotating on HBO... I'll either catch it there or Netflix. Thanks.

    Incredible biopic capturing the ethos of the 80s:

    Dallas Buyers Club is a 2013 American biographical drama film, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée and written by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack. Matthew McConaughey stars as the real-life AIDS patient Ron Woodroof, who smuggled unapproved pharmaceutical drugs into Texas when he found them effective at improving his symptoms, distributing them to fellow sufferers by establishing the "Dallas Buyers Club" while facing opposition from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    I got up to season 4 and the free bee stopped. Had to sign up just to catch the last 3 seasons. Now we officially have every channel know to man.
    Charlie Runker (Evan Handler) and the chick from Louie are funny as hell.
    I'll check out Ray Donovan next it looks great.
