So you may not know this but Matthew McConaughey is basically a scholarly professor. Matthew has taught at the University of Texas at Austin multiple times at this point, but now, because they love his ass so much, he’s officially becoming a professor at the university.
Matthew is really out to make himself unofficial mascot of Texas because he’s always been involved in the Austin social scene and just last week the Austin Football Club announced that Matthew McConaughey had become an investor for the soccer team–Yeah the football club is Football as in Soccer–I know: it’s surprising for Austin? But hey, you play sports everywhere, I’m told. Well now he needs to be an educator for the youth of the city so he can really make his mark.
Do you think Matthew automatically fails students if they write, “Alright, alright, alright!”, in their essays? Or maybe they get bonus points? What an interesting power dynamic… Austin360 reports that Matthew is now not only a super duper famous person the kids can cream themselves over, he’s also their professor who can give them assignments and tell them what to do!
On Wednesday, The Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas announced that Matthew was appointed as a professor of practice to the Department of Radio-Television-Film faculty. He’ll start this fall term which is like next month–which is like next week. He had previously been a “visiting instructor” at the school since 2015 when he first co-taught a class called “Script to Screen” all about film production. Here’s a little promo video of Professor McConaughey from 2017:
This new class’ curriculum was completely developed by Matthew apparently, and provides a “behind-the-scenes view of each stage of a film’s production.” So you’ll probably learn all about how movie executives don’t care about what your movie is about and more care about how much money it will generate for their studios. Or how they like it when you can just repeat an old movie back to the with slightly new details. I mean, if he’s being authentic it will. Or maybe he means the actual movie itself? In which case: yeah, I guess he could teach kids that too. I mean the dark underbelly of Hollywood is probably more important to learn to navigate, but I guess that’s less university-study and more self-defence-class.
