Matthew McConaughey Named a Professor University of Texas

Matthew McConaughey has been tapped to be a professor at the University of Texas in the film department. NBC says:

Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey will join the University of Texas as a professor who this fall will teach in the university's Department of Radio-Television-Film.

McConaughey has been a visiting instructor at the flagship campus in Austin since 2015 and the university said in a statement Wednesday that the appointment recognizes his "outstanding work as a teacher and mentor."

He will continue teaching a Script to Screen film production class for which he developed the course curriculum.

The university says McConaughey is respected for his "willingness to work with students beyond the classroom."

McConaughey earned a film degree from the school in 1993.

I bet the waitlist for the class will be huge! Hopefully he does alright, alright, alright.
