Matthew McConaughey responds to speculation he may one day become governor of Texas – The Hollywood Reporter


Matthew McConaughey appeared on Tonight’s show Friday to talk about his fundraising concert in Texas this weekend.

But first, he and late-night host Jimmy Fallon briefly bonded over their affection for airflows. Jimmy appeared from his own air stream, while McConaughey said he had three in his backyard and he and his family had slept in one the night before.

The conversation then turned to the Dallas Buyers Club actor book Green light, which was not written as a traditional memoir, but rather as a “playbook” based on the adventures of his life.

Noting that it’s still a number one New York Times bestseller, Fallon asked if there might be a sequel someday. “I don’t want to re-muddle the soufflé,” McConaughey joked, adding that he would like to write something else at some point. He scanned 36 journals for the book, but only used 25% of the material – so there is a lot more to extract.

On speculation that he will one day run for governor of Texas, McConaughey responded to the rumor by explaining, “It’s something I’m studying. Absoutely. What an honorable thing to even be able to contemplate, “the actor said, before going speechless.” I’m no further than that right now, sir. “

Speaking of the recent storms in Texas, the actor confirmed that his family is doing well. “We had a few broken pipes,” he said, adding that they must have been boiling water for a while. He said tens of thousands of people were in a much worse condition.

This Sunday, McConaughey will host the “We’re Texas” benefit concert, featuring performances by Kelly Clarkson, Post Malone, Khalid, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Gary Clark Jr. and more. Among those making appearances will include Jamie Foxx, Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez and Woody Harrelson. The event, which will be broadcast on YouTube, will benefit McConaughey’s “Just Keep Livin” Relief Fund.

The actor is currently in talks to star in the HBO limited series. A time of mercy, an adaptation of the novel by John Grisham and a sequel to A time to kill. McConaughey would reprise his role from the 1996 crime drama.
