Matthew McConaughey in LA

Posted on March 07, 2014

Other Oscar winners may be gallivanting around Paris in ridiculously chic outifts (and possibly having torrid affairs that will almost certainly cause Tumblr to burn to the ground should they ever be confirmed), but McC is keeping it real.

No Oscars here. Just a dude in a dorky hat. That’s actually kind of endearing and refreshing after the succession of Vegas Pimp outfits he deployed for his awards season poledance.

Also: If you haven’t seen True Detective on HBO, we’re gonna go ahead and  give it our highest recommendation. In fact, Tom rewatched episode 4 (for at least the 3rd or 4th time) last night and when that final shot crashed to black, he turned to Lorenzo and said, “GodDAMN. That is, by far, the best hour of television I’ve seen all year.”  It’s really as good as people say – although you should, in our opinion, ignore most of the more bizarre and occult theorizing out there. It’s fun to delve into, but you shouldn’t confuse imagery with narrative.

He’s pretty much a lock for an Emmy next year. In Dallas Buyers Club he was a cornered animal, all wild-eyed and fearful, but beautiful in his desperation and willingness to fight for life. In True Detective, he’s mesmerizing, like a cobra. When he goes off on one of those metaphysical monologues, you just can’t tear your eyes away. The sad part is, he’ll probably be nominated against his friend and co-star Woody Harrelson, who’s also giving a career-redefining performance.

    • Tricia

      Agree agree agree on True Detective. I’ve been meaning to rewatch that 4th ep. MM and Woody are both phenomenal.

      • lexilexi

        I hate for it to end. Am going to watch it from the beginning again before the final episode.

      • Kristin McNamara

        Okay enough people have mentioned this show to me in the past few weeks that it appears I MUST watch it now.
        Also, not to change the subject (and I’ll be totally upfront and honest in admitting that I’m posting this comment up high so people see it and I get this question answered haha), but I’m dying of curiosity about about TLo’s comment in the first line, “and possibly having torrid affairs that will almost certainly cause Tumblr to burn to the ground should they ever be confirmed”…. but WHAT the heck are they referring to?! Is something scandy happening in Paris right now, celeb-wise?! (TLo is basically my only source of celeb-gossip! :) )

        • Kikishua

          I’m guessing it’s the speculated Lupita/Jared Leto hook-up…

      • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

        If you want to go back a ways in their working together, EdTV was the first time I saw these two together and I thought they were both fantastic in that movie.

        Matthew did a fantastic job with Lincoln Lawyer, too.

        I’m pissed that we only have one more episode with these beautifully drawn and portrayed characters. :(

        • venusvelvet

          Lincoln Lawyer was when he started to turn his shirtless bimbo rom-com image around for me, although I remember him as a convincing televangelist in Contact long ago. He had it in him, but it wasn’t until recently that he decided to challenge himself.

          • AnaRoW

            Actually he started out doing some more complex roles like in Frailty and Lone Star but somewhere along the line he got into making a bunch of mediocre rom-coms. I guess he was trying to pad his bank account or something. I’m so glad he’s going back to being an actor.

            • venusvelvet

              Agreed, I’d prob give anything he’s in a chance.

        • Meg0GayGuys6

          I could watch him in Lincoln Lawyer (did the book justice, IMHO) and A Time to Kill all day! He was fantastic in those!

    • Nicholas

      I find the show to be a quasi-intelligent show that mixes Lost and a bunch of Scandi Noir tropes. It’s a little like the inversion of the wrong direction of Mad Men where Weiner felt like spelling out all the symbolism, whereas True Detective implies a lot where there is little to none to be found.

      Harrelson and McC carry the show with their Emmy-guaranteed acting.

    • mommyca

      Yay! So glad you finally mentioned True Detective! I was going to ask you if you were watching it during the DC book signing, but then I forgot! ;) I totally agree when you say that watching him during his monologues is mesmerizing… totally! The cadence of his voice, it’s just so hypnotic! I’ve never been particularly fond of McC but this performance has changed the way I look at him… What an amazing show, so sad it’s coming to an end…
      Anyways, in other news, he looks cute here… I like the jacket a lot…

      • Tânia

        I too didn’t care for him until True Detective. He’s spectacular (and hot) as Cohle

    • Chuck Barthelme

      What’s with the super baggy pants? He can’t have gained all the weight back yet. He’s swimming in those. I like the look if he’d just trim down the fabric there.

      • demidaemon

        Exactly what I was thinking. Those are not attractive pants.

      • kimmeister

        Yeah, I don’t mind the hat at all, the pants are the most offending piece of that ensemble.

    • Pamdela

      McC has completely upended all my going-in expectations. Spectral and mesmerizing. Also, having an 8-episode arc written and directed by the same two people makes a huge difference creatively. Can’t wait for the finale on Sunday.

      • Kitten Mittons

        THIS, all the way. Totally changed my thinking on him. Harrelson is really great, too.
        I can absolutely wait for the finale, though, because I don’t want it to end yet.

        • amf0001

          I’m planning on binge watching it the second it’s over… I’m so enjoying this series, the quality is amazing!

          • Kitten Mittons

            You and me both, honey.

    • MilaXX

      I think he looks like a giant toddler here, but I completely agree with the True Detective love. Both guys are bringing it!

    • French_Swede

      If this is his idea of going *undercover* … it’s not working.

    • KinoEye

      OK. You sold me on True Detective. Friends have been raving about it for weeks, but now that I’ve got the coveted TLo Seal of Approval, I know what I’m doing tonight.

    • marlie

      I like this look on him better than anything that he’s worn for the whole awards season. Casual and laid-back suits him, and I don’t mind the hat or the shoes at all.

      • makeityourself

        In fact, I love the red shoes and the hat. He looks really pulled together in a not-to-studied way.

        Re: True Detective
        I have been so haunted by last Sunday’s episode that it is making me a little ill. It’s that good of a show. Woody and Matthew are extraordinary together.

    • Claudia

      I’m telling everyone I know and everyone I don’t that they NEED True Detective in their lives! “In True Detective, he’s mesmerizing, like a cobra.” I hadn’t realised, but that’s EXACTLY what he is. Astounding performances from him and Harrelson. Don’t want it to end.

      • girliecue

        Those two are so good I can see them both in each other’s roles and TD would still be the best show on TV currently. Granted, Woody’s Rust might not be as hypnotic as McC’s, but I’m sure he would still give us a compelling character. Hate to see this story end, and hope the next story is equally as gripping!

    • alyce1213

      He looks so normal. I’d like to sit and chat with this person.

    • @Biting Panda

      Just keep on keepin on, my man.

    • gabbilevy

      The only complaint I have about True Detective is that, while they’re going to do the miniseries thing a la American Horror Story, they’re not bringing back the same actors. McConaughey said he won’t be in the next season. Sad face.

    • myandyleigh

      I LOVE True Detective, and particularly McConaughey’s performance. He really is mesmerizing as Rustin Cole. I’ve been rewatching the whole series, and I have to say that episode 2 is chock full of important clues of how this thing will pan out, I think. And yes, ignore all the occult stuff, that’s just window dressing, it’s not what’s driving the narrative. I agree that Woody’s performance is great, too, but it’s really McConaughey that shines in this show.

      This is one of the best shows I’ve watched, ever. Really fine acting by Mr. McC. He should get an Emmy for this, he’s earned it.

      • Sam Smith

        I think Woody and McC are almost equally great and the two characters shine by playing off each other.

        • myandyleigh

          Oh, I think Woody is great, too, but McC just really hits it out of the park. The episode where he’s undercover with the biker gang and high as a kite is spot on, it rings as true as anything I’ve ever seen. Don’t ask me how I know, let’s just say a misspent youth and leave it at that, but he hit the bullseye with that. I can’t take my eyes off of him. I’m going to spend tomorrow snuggled in a my comfy recliner with a pot of coffee, some tasty snacks and my computer watching it all again so I’m thoroughly saturated for Sunday’s thrilling conclusion.

        • Gatto Nero

          It’s like watching two great dancers pair up.

          • demidaemon

            Well said.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I love his red Pumas though. I don’t have cable, but this is will end up in my Netflix Queue with all the other shit I have to wait on because I don’t have cable.

      (PS Lupita is dating a Somalian rapper…so Tumblr might just burn down anyways)

    • random_poster

      The only thing I’ve seen him in of late was Magic Mike. I sat through the entire thing wishing they’d just drop the pretense of a plot and keep the guys in the club on the screen. MM was definitely the stand-out actor (in many regards) and totally lit up the screen.

      I can’t wait to watch True Detective.

      • Jessica Freeman

        I just watched Dallas Buyers Club 2 nights ago and the problem with watching these movies post Oscars is that you think its going to be the best thing since sliced bread. It left me underwhelmed. Jared Leto did do a great job though.

    • cocohall

      True Detective is really a vanity free performance for MM, especially in the scenes where his hair is long and gray and he just looks like shit. And Woody Harrelson is matching him step for step. I have read several interviews with the writer (and apparently he wrote the WHOLE thing himself, much the way you would a novel, which is not the norm for film or TV). He talks a lot about storytelling and all the Carcosa business is part of his acknowledging the common tropes of this genre and are not meant to be taken terribly seriously. He said that there are no big twists or surprises coming in the finale; that most of what you needed to know was revealed early on. I could do without the gratuitous bouncy boob shots during the sex scenes, although I suspect that this is also a nod to the genre and hey, it is HBO. That is really a minor quibble; it really has been compelling TV and I’m sorry to see this season end.

      • The Counselor

        In one of those interviews with Nice P. (on Buzzfeed, I think), he says that he’d be happy with no nudity, but pay-cable has what he called a “nudity mandate.” I had to laugh, though, when he said, “At least we got Matthew’s butt in there.”

        • Gatto Nero

          And a fine one it is, too.

        • deelup

          I only watched episode 2 last night. I might forgive the gratuitous nudity from the Percy Jackson girl if I get to see McConaughey-hey’s bum.

        • cocohall

          Nudity mandate! That along with the HBC post has made my morning! Yes, I was glad for a shot of Matthew’s tush, but it did get me to thinking that Louisiana is hot and muggy and the man must need to shower? At least once an episode? :0)

        • fursa_saida

          That doesn’t surprise me at all. I heard something similar from a woman who directed an episode of Game of Thrones–an exec literally pulled her aside and said she had to put in more nudity. Of the female variety. He reportedly said something about how he was there to represent the “perv” audience’s demands or similar, and it’s just like…YES, THAT IS THE PROBLEM, ASSHOLE.

          Note: I’m not anti-nudity in and of itself. But [insert standard statement about objectification of women and double standards].

        • Melissa

          Do you think HBO made him put in the “I want you to f*** me in the ass” line? Because that was a real winner.

          • The Counselor

            I wonder, because I thought that line did hit a bit of an off-note…

        • Melissa

          Do you think they mandated the “I want you to ___ me in the ass” line? Because that was a real winner.

          • The Counselor

            Possibly, because I thought that line did hit a bit of an off-note… I’d like to believe, though, that they’d at least respect the amazing and careful writing enough not to do that.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        This is Nic Pizzolatto’s first real television project – his IMDB is shockingly short. (Except for a couple of writing credits in The Killing.) He is an award winning novelist, so it makes sense that his first TV show unravels like a novel. There’s a great saying that a director’s first movie is the best because he waited 30 years to create it

    • Betsy

      I think after the year he’s had, Matthew M. (because I still can’t spell his last name right) deserves to wear whatever the heck he wants. Love True Detective. What this guy has done with his career after years of rom-com is so amazing. Alright, alright, alright.

    • JR Labrador

      Totally agree. True Detective is the best show on TV right now.

    • Imasewsure

      I really don’t like that kind of hat but I guess the alternatives are the hipster fedora, the dude baseball cap, or the stupid cowboy hat so I guess I need to reconsider.
      Like everything else here. He looks comfy

    • Sam Smith

      True Detective is awesome, honestly the story line/investigation is interesting and all, but the character development of the two leads is what does it for me. Both McC and Woody are beyond good in this show.

    • VermillionSky

      True Detective is awesome and the correct way to do an anthology (pay attention, American Horror Story). You can really tell the whole story was mapped out from the start to the end, and edited. MM & WH both nail their roles, and their characters are complex: heroes at their core but not without flaws. Love, love, love it!

    • Bexxx

      I don’t watch much TV because I don’t have the attention span for it so HBO shows are usually way out of the picture but I am mesmerized for the entire hour of True Detective every week. I have a mild to medium Woody Harrelson obsession so I knew I’d give it a shot but it really exceeded my expectations. Woody and McMahoolihay or whatever truly give career-defining performances, brilliantly illustrating the personal reasons behind each character’s interest in the case. I’m always amazed at how well the makeup and costuming teams did at making Cohle and Hart look the appropriate ages in the 1995 and present day segments. And that episode 4 tracking shot was seriously unbelievable. Fukunaga could win the directing Emmy on that alone. YOU GUYS WATCH IT ITS SO GOOD

      • Adrianna Grężak

        I agree about the aging make up/costumes – I think they nailed it.

      • KinoEye

        Hahaha, McMahoolihay. Another kitten — Sobaika — referred to him as McConathing. Also a good alternative.

        • ShaoLinKitten

          My friend and I call him McHoneyHoney, ever since Magic Mike.

    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      I applauded alone in my living room at the end of episode 4! Both Matthew and Woody are fantastic in the show. BTW, I have the shoes McC is sporting here. :)

      • Gatto Nero

        Love the red shoes here with this otherwise neutral look.

    • Karen Belgrad

      Fascinating…he’s being photographed, walking down the street, and doesn’t appear to be schilling for any major design house.

    • Nikko Viquiera

      And he looks a lot healthier, so yay!

      • Gatto Nero

        Also looks so much better without all the orange makeup.

    • littlething

      Okay, I have only just watched episode 2 of True Detective, so please forgive me, but WOW am I ever not impressed with the writing or acting. I’m glad to hear it gets better, and I trust you TLO so I’ll keep watching. But episode 2 was a solid hour of lengthy, empty monologues and boring detective cliches. I thought the dialogue between Woody Harrelson and his wife during their fight was embarrassingly bad! MM’s acting is good but WH isn’t exactly moving mountains…
      I’m guessing the plot actually moves in subsequent episodes?

    • Adrianna Grężak

      What I also love about True Detective is that it’s a very structured and contained story – planning only 8 episodes worked to its benefit. Both their performances are wonderful, and the Emmys should shock us all and declare a tie.

    • Gatto Nero

      YES to your review of True Detective, TLo. Yes and yes.
      And MM looks relaxed here, which is refreshing. Though my great Uncle Alfio from Sicily sported a hat like that, in brown.

    • deelup

      I have been in love with Matthew for years. He can wear (or not wear… Oh yeah) whatever he wants.

    • LilyVanessi

      I’m enthralled by True Detective. That and Hannibal are two of the best hours of television around. Oh, and his hat is cute.

      • fursa_saida

        I haven’t watched True Detective yet (I am definitely planning on it), but Hannibal is my absolute favorite thing on TV these days. I’ve been hearing a lot of comparisons between the two, which means I’m restraining myself from going up and down this thread telling everyone to watch Hannibal because I’m a shameless evangelist for that show. (I’m only not doing it because I feel wrong about doing it without having actually seen True Detective. But soon! SOON.)

    • Kristin

      True Detective has set my new standard for television. I’ve never been as obsessed with a show before. It is, as you and others have said, mesmerizing.

      And it’s made me dig MM in a way I never thought possible. He actually used to be on my irrational hate list, but I would take him home in this outfit and do unspeakable things to him, dorky hat and all.

    • Jecca2244

      insanely amazing show.

    • Sofia Bentivoglio

      love true detective. woody is doing an excellent job, to be sure, but he is not unrecognizable in his role the way that matt is. i have often wondered if it is due to the way the parts are written or the acting.

    • Qitkat

      It always seemed as if he were only in lesser movies, but I took notice in Magic Mike, which, let’s be honest, I watched originally for Matt Bomer, who disappointed. Then all the buzz around DBC, so I checked out True Detective, and literally could not believe the transformation and depth of this guy, along with Woody Harrelson. True Talent. It’s such an original showcase of brilliant writing, directing, acting, in depth character development, makeup artistry, moody visual styling. The best ones are always unique like this. Highly recommended.

    • Qitkat

      Matthew is so cute man on the street here. Loving the hat and the shoes.

    • lobsterlen

      Question for True Detective fans ..
      We know that Rust was abused as a child he described the abuse. Was Marty abused? Has Marty spoke much about his childhood?

      • ShaoLinKitten

        Marty said his father was a Korean War vet who never talked about his feelings. Mother was a stay at home mom. That’s about all we heard.

        • lobsterlen

          Russ is portrayed as mysteries but Marty is the one we don’t know much about. I wonder if Marty was abused by the “cult”.

          • ShaoLinKitten

            I don’t know what’s going to come out in the finale, but I don’t expect any big revelations about Rust or Marty’s past. Maybe something about Marty’s daughter, the one who acted out. Lots of black stars around her, in her art, etc. But that could just be the art director’s visual cues and not a hint. Pizzolatto said not to expect any major plot twists or tricky, unforeseen endings.

            • lobsterlen

              No I am not expecting any big reveals either. However I have been about it and would it big reveal to find out Marty was sexually abused as a child given his attitudes toward sex. Furthermore how Marty reacts to child abuse is very intense and personal.

            • Kitten Mittons

              I guess this theory didn’t pan out, but it would’ve been interesting. And it would have made sense within the story.

              How did you like the finale???

            • lobsterlen

              Glad I was wrong. The ending was very good. I should not have fallen into the over thinking trap.

            • Kitten Mittons

              I think a lot of people did. I guess it pays off to be dim sometimes, because none of these theories even occurred to me.

    • Joanna

      You know, five years ago, I never would have pegged Matthew McC as being this capable as an actor. I have been proven very wrong, which makes me happy, because we always need more good actors.

    • Suse

      Much more appealing than his Vegas Pimp persona in my book.

    • Melissa

      You know, I have watched every episode of True Detective, and I wouldn’t say I hate it exactly. The scenery and cinematography is beautifully done, the atmosphere’s great, the acting is solid. But I don’t find it particularly refreshing or deep, and I don’t understand why critics are drooling so copiously over it (Hannibal is world’s better imo). When I watch it, I feel like I’m in college again, getting stoned with a douchey philosophy major and a grabass football player. For all that they claim not to be glorifying these characters, they sure are trying hard to make us admire all-knowing Rust. And for a show that claims to be about the consequences of a violent, white patriarchy, they don’t give the women or black characters in the show jackshit to do (sure have seen a lot of ass and titty shots though!) Maybe the ending will pleasantly surprise me.

      • AnneElliot

        I admire the acting and the stylishness of the series, but I agree, I’m a little disturbed by the cookie-cutter stereotyped roles of the very few female characters. Woody’s character has a wife and two daughters and they have barely any character development. It’s so disappointing since they’ve spent all this time developing the two main characters and I can barely remember the names of anyone else, much less any back story.

    • formerlyAnon

      My opinion of him takes a minor uptick because he’s not in Paris, sitting in the front row of a runway show and acting like he really understands fashion.

    • CassandraMortmain

      I really can’t think of any other actor that has so successfully reinvented his career. McC has taken some giant risks, really stretching himself creatively, and he’s knocked it out of the park every single time. He’s been absolutely brilliant, in different ways, in Bernie (very funny, criminally under-appreciated Richard Linklater movie also starring Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine), in Magic Mike, in Mud (a wonderful coming-of-age movie that is also under-appreciated and co-stars a very good Reese Witherspoon playing very much against type) and of course in Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective (and a cameo in Wolf of Wall Street). Also heard he was great in Killer Joe but I didn’t see that. He’s going to be pole-dancing next year when he deservedly wins an Emmy and every other award possible for TD. I never took him seriously but somehow, he’s turned into one of the best actors of his generation. Major props to him.
      TD is mesmerizing tv and I can’t recommend it highly enough. I haven’t yet seen last week’s episode and I’m trying to stay spoiler free until I can. I gather that there may have been some disappointment in that episode? I guess we’ll have to wait to see how it ends before we start talking about it as one of the best tv shows of all time but it’s clearly already in the discussion. Cary Fukunaga has done a brilliant job. The cinematography, use of music, the acting, the story – it’s all fantastic and offers a mesmerizing, almost hallucinogenic viewing experience. Woody Harrelson is also nailing it. I think that it might be possible to nominate him for best supporting actor, if he agrees. That would be a cheat, since both McC and WH are co-leads, but it happens all the time and in this case, they’re both truly deserving of awards. So I hope they go that route. Side note: one of my favorite scenes was at the hillbilly bunny ranch. The visuals of that trailer park scene in the Louisiana bayou were stunning. And I loved when the very young madam schooled Hart on the ways of the partiarchy in a far more devastating and successful manner than any women’s studies grad from Smith could have done.
      As for the clothes, meh. He looks comfortable and cute and he hasn’t returned to what seems to be his default setting, which is sleazy. But as long as he keeps turning out brilliant work he can wear anything he wants.

      • grasshack

        Keep saying, check out “The Paperboy” – why that movie is so under the radar, I don’t know. It’s juicy and has a lot of great actors in it.

    • Mona_Visa

      Medical building… I hope everything’s alright alright alright.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      True Detective is as good as it gets on TV right now..McC was in a very disturbing indie flic called Frailty years ago and his performance in that made me realize he did have the acting chops..he deserves all the awards…

    • Paula Pertile

      He looks cute. TDet is “bow down worthy”, yes.

    • GorgeousThings

      I always liked McC – even when it was chic not to. He comes across as a good natured goober, and he was fun in some of those rom-coms. But man – True Detective! Whoa. I mean. Christ. Wow. Man…

      Yes, he is that good, and so is Woody Harrelson, whom I have loved ever since he sang “Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly Kelly” on Cheers. The two of them are solid gold. I’ll be interested to see how next season stacks up, and who stars in next season’s TD.

      • lobsterlen

        I have been wondering about next season too. True Detective has set the bar high.

    • altissima

      He’s not balding is he? That’s a classic hiding-the-thin-spot cap.

    • mcbishop

      Glad to hear you gentlemen like TD: I LOVE it, my husband, not so much. I kept wishing y’all would blog it, extend my pleasure in the show. It’s in a league of its own. Love that it’s only the 8 episodes and out. It will stand on its own, and not wither away the way so many great series have, ultimately.

    • janierainie

      Agree with you about True Detective. They are both incredibly good in it. I just hope the ending isn’t heading into too much unbelievability.

    • Phyllis Craine

      There’s a reason for that hat: no hairpeice

    • nycfan

      I just binged watched the first three episodes of True Detective until after 1 AM last night, guess I have a treat waiting in ep4.

      • nycfan

        McC must have filmed it right after Dallas Buyers Club b/c he is soooooo darned thin in the show — first thought at these pictures was that it was nice to know he got back to a more reasonable weight.

      Everyone is so good in TD, but MM is just breathtaking to watch. And yes, mesmerizing–he’s doing to us what the character does to all those he fetches confessions from, and the story he’s telling us? We believe him, even though we know–we watch him!–lie. It’s just such a great story about telling stories…and both lead actors are wonderful. I am waiting for the last episode tomorrow night, but I also dread it.

      Love his red sneaks. And I couldn’t agree more about True Detective. It is SO good.

      The guy responsible for that single shot scene in ep. 4 (he directed every episode), Cary Joji Fukunaga, also made an amazing film called Sin Nombre you should check out.

        He also did Jane Eyre with Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska. The guy is nothing if not diverse. I’ve read that he’s now getting bombarded with offers from Hollywood. He deserves every good thing coming his way. He’s a real talent.

          Thanks for the heads up. I’ll have to check it out now. Definitely keeping an eye on him.

            Yes, Cary Fukunaga is an incredible director, and yes everyone in Hollywood is trying to work with him. My company has been chasing him for a while, actually.

      YES!!! True Detective is incredible, and far and away the best thing on tv right now. I’m so glad you guys like it, I’ve been wondering where you stand on it. I loved McConaughey in both Dallas Buyers Club and Mud last year, but True Detective is easily the best he’s ever been. The whole show is fantastic though – from the killer performances to the masterful writing and directing. Cannot WAIT for the finale this Sunday, and very sad that the season’s already almost over. I won’t be able to shake this one for quite a while.

      True Detective radically changed my opinion of MM. His performance is utterly riveting. And yeah, Woody Harrelson is also fantastic, a career high. Everything about that show is fantastic. I haven’t loved a show this much since Deadwood.

      True detective is incredible and MM is genius. So bummed that it’s such a short series. I re-watched the first 7 eps yesterday marathon-style.

      True Detective is the best show on TV. Now or ever, pretty much. Never was a MMc fan, but now I’m a believer. I think he looks adorable in this picture. If he walked past me on the street, I’d turn my head.

      Woody Harrelson is blowing me away in this show. I saw him in a film where he played a walker once, and he was magnificent. He has so much more range than he gets credit for.

      I should be caught up on True Detective just in time for the finale Sunday. I have three episodes to go. I haven’t seen DBC yet, but, from MM performance in TD, I can see why he won an Oscar.

      I don’t get True Detective, but I never was a fan of Southern Gothic.

      (Stuck in Tennessee the summer of 1960, was plenty Gothic enough for one lifetime.)

      “In True Detective, he’s mesmerizing, like a cobra. When he goes off on one of those metaphysical monologues, you just can’t tear your eyes away. ” – this pretty much defines it, yes.

    • CeeRich

      True Detective is amazing. He is at his career peak right now. I can’t tear my eyes away from him in every scene.
