Matthew McConaughey is going back to school and the Internet just broke. No, he’s not going to be a student. He will return to the school he graduated from in 1993, with a film degree, and begin teaching this fall in the university’s Department of Radio-Television-Film.
McConaughey has been a visiting instructor at the flagship campus in Austin since 2015, and the university said in a statement Wednesday that the appointment recognizes his “outstanding work as a teacher and mentor.”– HollywoodReporter
He will continue teaching a Script to Screen film production class for which he developed the course curriculum.
The university says McConaughey is respected for his “willingness to work with students beyond the classroom.”
McConaughey has appeared in more than 50 films, including Dazed and Confused, The Wolf of Wall Street and Dallas Buyers Club, for which he won an Oscar and Golden Globe for his leading role.
We predict a slight uptick in registrations.
