THE reinvention of Matthew McConaughey’s acting career has entered a period of philosophic upheaval and rational, scientific debate.
Julian Cook, head of Matthew McConaughey at Roehampton University, said: “The McConaissance has been a time of great cultural and spiritual advance. We have seen the dark, primitive days of Failure to Launch and The Wedding Planner replaced by a far more watchable era in which Matthew mainly smokes fags and shoots people.
“However, after five years of filmography reformation and artistic progress, Matthew’s career is showing signs of a shift towards reason, empiricism and scientific rigour.”
Cook added: “Instead of looking moody and trying to win Oscars, Matthew is now beginning to question the fundamental nature of truth and the centrality of human freedom.”
McConaughey’s agent, Donna Sheridan, said: “This whole McAge of Enlightenment thing has been a massive ball-ache so far. I have been trying to get Matthew to sign on for Magic Mike 3, but he seems more interested in evoking a Cartesian shift between external authority and internal certainty.
“I’ll be glad when this period is finally dislodged by McRomanticism in a few years’ time. That way, I can get him back doing shit-but-lucrative rom-coms.”
