Is there anything Matthew McConaughey can't do? Or, more precisely, is there anything that he can't do excellently? Turns out, the Oscar winner just might have a weak spot, and although it's not a big one, it's one that 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon gleefully exploited for his own edification on last night's show.

Jim Carrey has plenty of trademark characters to trot out -- Ace Ventura, the Cable Guy, Fire Marshall Bill, the Riddler (wait, scratch that one) -- but the funny man seems to be quite recently endeared to a new, highly specific one: fellow actor Matthew McConaughey in his Lincoln commercials. Carrey debuted his take on the admittedly overly dreamy commercials during last week's 'Saturday Night Live,' but he's not done with it just yet.
Deep, deep into the 169 minute running time of ‘Interstellar’ is a scene in which astronaut pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) must dock a spaceship with another, larger, out of control spinning space ship. The solution is to spin the smaller ship at the same speed, so that the effect makes it looks like both crafts aren’t spinning at all. So, by spinning everything out of control, it manipulates the situation into looking normal. This is also an apt description of the style of ‘Interstellar’’s director, Christopher Nolan.
Yeah it is a little strange that a newly minted Oscar winner like Matthew McConaughey would be caught dead making television commercials for Lincoln cars. However, it did lead to a series of fake 'SNL' commercials featuring guest host Jim Carrey playing the 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'True Detective' star, so who are we to complain?
One of our most highly-anticipated films of what remains of this year is, of course, Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar,' the sci-fi drama which promises to be just as touching as it is epic, if those trailers we've been seeing are any indication. Crying Matthew McConaughey gets us every time. And today we have some new photos from in front of and behind the scenes to help you get a little more intimate with the cast of the upcoming film.
For a long time, Marvel had their eye on Joaquin Phoenix to star in 'Doctor Strange.' In fact, he was far enough along in his negotiations that Marvel hoped to bring him out on stage at Comic-Con to introduce him to the crowd. Phoenix, in case you haven't noticed, is mercurial and negotiations stalled. And, then they stalled some more. And, then finally Marvel decided to move on completely. Now, here we are back at square one as Marvel has a completely new shortlist of actors to star in their next superhero film. We previously told you about Ewan McGregor, but who else does Marvel have their eye on?
This new 'Interstellar' trailer gives us our best and most clear look at the plot of Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi epic, and even then, we still don't know that much about the movie. But, after watching this trailer, we wouldn't have it any other way.
The more we see of Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar,' the more we are tickled with excitement. Following the official trailer releases, TV spots and a preliminary synopsis, a new TV spot has landed, bringing with it some confirmation on plot and new footage to delight the senses.
We're a little more than a month away before Christopher Nolan's sci-fi film, 'Interstellar,' hits theaters, and it's still somewhat of a mystery. The director of 'Inception' sure has the whole "keeping cards close to the vest" thing down pat. With a few trailers and posters now in the airwaves, however, a batch of new 'Interstellar' photos debuted to give us a bit more insight into what is surely one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year.
Well alright, alright, alriiiiii -- wait a minute. Although it was previously confirmed by 'Magic Mike XXL' director Greg Jacobs that the entire cast would be returning for the upcoming sequel, it seems that's not quite the case: Matthew McConaughey, who played veteran strip club ringleader Dallas in the first film, will not be making an appearance after all. Commence the booing.
