MATTHEW’S NEW ROLE: PRO­FES­SOR!

Star (USA) - - Star Dish -

Some lucky stu­dents at the Uni­ver­sity of Texas’ Austin cam­pus may soon be feel­ing hot for teacher! Dal­las Buy­ers Club Os­car win­ner Matthew McConaughe­y has been ap­pointed a pro­fes­sor in the school’s de­part­ment of radio, tele­vi­sion and film, start­ing this fall. The ac­tor, who earned a film de­gree from UT in 1993, has served as a vis­it­ing in­struc­tor since 2015, and has now de­vel­oped a course of­fer­ing a “be­hind-the-scenes view of each stage of a film’s pro­duc­tion,” the uni­ver­sity said.

“I have more peo­ple who want me to share my ex­pe­ri­ences now than I did be­fore,” Matthew’s said. “And I go: ‘Yeah, OK, I’ve been do­ing this for 26 years.… I do have some ex­pe­ri­ence un­der my belt.’”

The school said they brought Matthew on be­cause of his “out­stand­ing work as a teacher and men­tor.” And to that we say, “Al­right, al­right, al­right!”
