Texas Alum Matthew McConaughey To Teach Class At Alma Mater

Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey is a Texas alumnus and a diehard Longhorns fan. This fall, he adds UT professor to his resume. McConaughey and director Gary Ross will assist in teaching a film class titled "Advanced Producing: Script To Screen." UT made the announcement with a cool video via social media.

The class will focus on the production of McConaughey and Ross' latest project Free State of Jones. The Oscar winner won't be on campus for every meeting this fall, and will mostly appear via video, but he is expected to make at least one appearance in person. Even so, this looks like a really cool opportunity for Texas' film students.
