There was once a time when Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey was seen as a bit of a joke of an actor, with some people suggesting that he had no real acting talent whatsoever. This was mainly because of the type of movies that Matthew would star in a few years back, taking on a lot of romantic comedies and movies where he really did not need to stretch himself.
However, Matthew McConaughey has since taken on a number of more challenging projects and given us some fantastic performances in recent years, which have made him one of the most sought after actor on the planet. Matthew even won an Academy Award at the 2014 Oscars, for his role in the movie Dallas Buyers Club, proving that he can mix it with the best in the business.
Next up for Matthew McConaughey is the new movie The Free State of Jones, which is a film that tells a true story that took place during the Civil War and the Reconstruction. Matthew has been seen out and about lately, with a big bushy and some less than impressive hair, as he prepares to begin shooting the movie in New Orleans.
As well as starring Matthew McConaughey, the other names that are currently attached to The Free State of Jones include Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Keri Russell, and Mahershala Ali. The Free State of Jones will be directed by Gary Ross, who also penned the screenplay for the film, with the movie expected to hit the big screen some time in 2016. We look forward to it.
