Matthew McConaughey will be on hand to discuss Dallas Buyers Club, which is nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor (for McConaughey).
Popular Texas actor Matthew McConaughey has appeared in nearly 50 films since debuting in Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused over 20 years ago. But it’s his work in the past few years that has established this performer as one of the most distinctive actors working right now; he has made his mark on several notable American movies, from Mud and Killer Joe to The Wolf of Wall Street and Magic Mike. McConaughey is an Oscar nominee for his performance as real-life AIDS activist Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club. An imperfect man fighting for survival during an uncertain time in America, Ron’s self-interest is galvanized into something much more. Dallas Buyers Club is nominated for 6 Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor (McConaughey).
