Since this household has been preoccupied with Texas this week, it’s only fitting to profile a Texan today. In this case, it’s Matthew McConaughey, born in Uvalde, and currently living in Austin.
Matthew McConaughey (November 4, 1969) is an American actor and producer. He first gained notice for his supporting performance in the coming-of-age comedy Dazed and Confused (1993), which is considered by many to be the actor’s breakout role. McConaughey’s breakthrough performance as a leading man came in the legal drama A Time to Kill (1996). He followed this with leading performances in the science fiction film Contact and the historical drama Amistad (1997), the war drama U-571 (2000) and the psychological thriller Frailty (2001).
It’s not the greatest film, but I loved McConaughey in Reign of Fire It’s a great fantasy flick.
