Being Matthew McConaughey

Blog Photo - Being Matthew McConaugheyI read a tweet recently that said "Hollywood just hands Matthew McConaughey a script and tells him it's going to be his life for the next few months - and he says 'well alright! cool!'" (I'm paraphrasing. And I also heard somewhere that he doesn't wear deodorant. Don't hate me, girls, I'm just the messenger.)

I don't mind Matt. I don't think he's a great actor, by any means, but he's okay. I enjoy almost everything he's been in that I've seen. There are a few movies he's in that I absolutely love - but only one that I don't think I could see anybody else playing his character. I definitely like his more serious roles the most, and my favorites are when he's kind of a whack job.

So you know the deal - recast Matthew McConaughey in any movie in which he appears with someone you think would be just as good or better. Here is a list of some of his movies; if you don't see the one you want, use it anyway!

No way would you ever want to remove him from Dazed and Confused!  That was theee perfect part for him.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days -  The only one I could see fitting this part would be Dane Cook (and I don't like Dane Cook.....or maybe Ryan Reynolds).

I think McConaughey's roles have been dead on and he's almost un-replaceable in these movies (???), well, maybe Angels in the Outfield, 

Is this directed to me? You trying to start something? 
(whispers) Just make sure you can finish it!!!!!! (insert evil eye)

I heard about the deodorant thing too.......as long as he had just showered, I wouldn't kick out of bed.     

I didn't like him as Dirk Pitt in Sahara, not what I had pictured in my mind vs the book character.
Probably. like Hugh Jackman.

I don't mind if he had just showered either, but he is a pretty active guy. Always running, biking, surfing...right when he got home he would need to shower LOL!

I knew the thing about deodorant. Ewww! I think Ryan Reynolds could have done How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.
