Matthew McConaughey is an American actor who made his breakthrough by starring in the Richard Linklater-directed coming of age comedy Dazed and Confused in 1993.[1][2] His first lead role was in the 1996 film adaptation of the John Grisham novel A Time to Kill.[3] The following year McConaughey played lawyer, Roger Sherman Baldwin opposite Morgan Freeman and Anthony Hopkins in Steven Spielberg-directed historical drama Amistad and also starred opposite Jodie Foster in Robert Zemeckis-directed science fiction drama Contact. In 1998, he appeared in Linklater-directed comedy-drama The Newton Boys. During the 2000s, McConaughey was typecast as a romantic comedy lead by starring in various films of this genre such as The Wedding Planner (2001), How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003), Failure to Launch (2006), and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009).[2][4][5]

However in the beginning of the following decade McConaughey took on more serious dramatic roles. This reinvention was dubbed by the media as the McConaissance and started when he played Mickey Haller in the adaptation of the Michael Connelly novel of the same name The Lincoln Lawyer and collaborated again with Linklater on black comedy Bernie (both 2011).[2][4][5] The following year he played the titular role in both Southern Gothic crime film Killer Joe, and coming-of-age drama Mud. For his performance in the former he received the Saturn Award for Best Actor.[6] He also played a supporting role in Steven Soderbergh-directed comedy-drama Magic Mike in the same year. McConaughey next role was as Ron Woodroof in the 2013 biographical drama Dallas Buyers Club. His performance garnered his first Academy Award for Best Actor, the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama, and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.[7][8] He also appeared in Martin Scorsese-directed The Wolf of Wall Street in the same year. In 2014, McConaughey played detective Rustin "Rust" Cohle in television crime drama series True Detective and starred in the Christopher Nolan-directed science fiction film Interstellar. The former earned McConaughey a nomination for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series.[9][10]
