"There are things you can get away with in this world, and there are things you can't." — Mud, Mud
After a string of bad movies in the late-2000's, Matthew McConaughey's acting career seemed to be spiraling the drain. But, thanks to strong performances in five indie movies in the last two years — The Lincoln Lawyer, Bernie, Killer Joe, Magic Mike and The Paperboy — and major buzz for his upcoming movie, Mud, McConaughey's star is on the rise once again. All McConaughey needs to cement his comeback is a big blockbuster movie and he appears to have found one in acclaimed director Christopher Nolan's (Inception) new sci-fi movie, Interstellar.
Join us in celebrating McConaughey's return by reflecting on the many memorable characters he's played in the past twenty years — from Wooderson, the charismatic stoner with a thing for high school girls in Dazed and Confused, to the title fugitive on a quest for love in Mud — and choose his best movies.
