Matthew McConaughey Is Making The Most Bizarre Career Choice

Just when you thought Matthew McConaughey's car commercials couldn't get any weirder, the 46-year-old "True Detective" star is taking on an even stranger role: college professor.

That's right. David Wooderson from "Dazed and Confused" could soon be teaching a class near you.

According to BroBible, the Academy Award winning actor is set to teach a filmmaking class at his alma mater, University of Texas at Austin, along with "Hunger Games" director Gary Ross. UT Austin posted this hilarious yet inspiring video to its Instagram page with the caption, "Meet Professor McConaughey."

Sadly, it looks like the class will only be taking 30 students, so you know the competition to get a spot is going to be pretty intense. It's safe to say UT Austin students are looking forward to having Professor McConaughey teach them a thing or two about making movies.

Do you think he'll show up to class like this every day??


Now might be a good time to go back to school...

Alright, alright, alright.
