"I've been looking for you, Lone Star."
Actor Matthew McConaughey made headlines when he lost thirty pounds to play Ron Woodruff in Dallas Buyers Club, and now that the trailer has arrived for the movie, it's clear why he was willing to undergo such a massive change for the role. While the movie takes on the very serious story of a man diagnosed with HIV in the mid-1980s, it's evident from the trailer that this is not simply a dry, depressing, based-on-a-true-story drama. The volatile, lanky cowboy played by McConaughey is not going to take the diagnosis laying down and will do whatever it takes, including befriending transgendered prostitutes and trafficking drugs, to survive. After watching the trailer it comes as no surprise that the Oscar buzz has already begun. Afterall, McConaughey really nails that Texas accent (winky face!).
The Oscar talk is almost sure to continue when the movie hits theaters November 1st.
