Hollywood is a very interesting place where, at one moment in your career it can seem like you are never going to get the huge recognition that your talent deserves, before you then start to land the roles which can really show off the actor you are. That certainly seems to have been the case for Hollywood superstar Matthew McConaughey, who was once seen as a bit of a laughing-stock in Hollywood, before going on to show the world that he is a great actor.
We will next get to see Matthew McConaughey on the big screen, in the upcoming new movie White Boy Rick, which we are already very excited about, not only as we are expecting big things from Matthew, including the possibility of another Oscar worthy performance, but also because it sounds like it could be a great film all round.
For those of you who are not familiar with what White Boy Rick is all about, the new movie has a synopsis which reads, "The story of teenager Richard Wershe Jr., who became an undercover informant for the FBI during the 1980s and was ultimately arrested for drug-trafficking and sentenced to life in prison."
While Matthew McConaughey will play the lead role of Rick in the new movie, the rest of the cast of White Boy Rick includes such other Hollywood talent as Jennifer Jason Leigh, Eddie Marsan, and Bruce Dern, to name just a few. White Boy Rick has been directed by Yann Demange and is set to hit the big screen on August 17, 2018 in the US and on August 31, 2018 in the UK.
