matthew mcconaughey

Alright, Alright, Alright.”

 I bet you just read that in Matthew McConaughey’s voice, and who can blame you?

Those three words are so synonymous with McConaughey that every impressionist attempting the “McConaughey” will utter those three words, made famous in the film Dazed and Confused, and everyone in the comedian’s audience will universally understand he’s doing the “McConaughey.”

Right before shooting that iconic scene, McConaughey was getting into character by listening to...
