Could Matthew McConaughey Become The Governor Of Texas?


Matthew McConaughey is thinking about taking on a very different role -- real-life governor of his home state of Texas.

McConaughey, whose roles include turns in True Detective and Dazed and Confused, is a dyed-in-the-wool Texan, and friends think he's fully into this effort. One insider tellsOK! magazine "At this point, he needs to see an actual path to winning because he's not interested in just making a protest statement. Don't be fooled by his aw-shucks attitude -- Matthew means business!"

The current governor, Republican Greg Abbott, has been hit hard with criticism over his response to both the COVID pandemic and the recent wave of storms that left millions without power in the Lone Star State.
