Matthew McConaughey surprised students at University of Texas, McConaughey’s alma mater, by giving their drunk asses a ride home in a golf cart.
Unfortunately, McConaughey did not take his shirt off while driving the golf cart.
The students posted about it on Facebook, which read, “Longhorns take care of each other, and it’s ”safe” to say Matthew McConaughey agrees. Don’t forget to use SURE Walk when traveling home late at night; you never know who might pick you up!”
I bet one day Kevin Durant will pick them up and then right before the stop, he’ll exit the cart and head to Alabama.
We’ve been talking about making Stephen King’s infamous Dark Tower series into a movie for quite some time. We’ve been through our fair share of casting rumors and confirmations, but one thing we know for sure… the movie is coming. Now courtesy of the film’s crew, we have our first set photos.
Out February 2017, The Dark Tower will be the first installation in what will likely become a trilogy. As per Games Radar, a site that intimately understands and worships all things nerdy and wonderful, has been trying to decipher and speculate as much about the film as possible pre-production. They report:
The Dark Tower is being touted as the first chapter in a fantasy franchise starring Idris Elba as Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey as his adversary, Walter Padick. However, it won’t necessarily follow the story chronologically. Where Stephen King’s books begin with a tale about Roland – aka The Gunslinger – hunting down the Man In Black, this batch of set photos seem to confirm earlier rumors: the first flick will nab bits and pieces from all over the novels. The cast of characters announced so far have tipped us off to that – and that shot of the twins is another big giveaway.
Pumped to see Matthew McConaughey continue to play more outside his ditzy dream boat typecast and excited to see Idris Elba with his actual face (maybe) in a movie. Nikolaj Arcel will direct and Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Abbey Lee, Katheryn Winnick and Tom Taylor will also join the cast.

Poor Matthew McConaughey!!
On May 15, Matthew's new film, The Sea of Trees, was booed during two different screenings at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film, depicts a scientist who plans to commit suicide in a Japanese forest after his beloved wife, played by Naomi Watts, dies. Throughout the character's journey, the audience is given flashbacks of the couple's not-so-perfect marriage and life together.
Despite the fabulous direction of Gus Van Sant, audiences were NOT happy with the flick, a fact McConaughey isn't too concerned about.
The actor explained:
"I liked the experience of making it and I'm glad we got the opportunity to introduce it to the world. Anyone has any right to either boo or ovate."
Wow, what a positive and upbeat attitude!!
Considering Matt has made a ton of great films, we bet this one flop is no biggie.
