Just Because

McConaughey published a memoir titled Greenlights in 2020. The book gave him the title of “#1 New York Times bestselling author Matthew McConaughey.” Now, he’s back for more with his first-ever children’s book titled Just Because.

A soulful and irreverent collection of life lessons that empowers readers, big and small, to celebrate how we are all full of possibility. Why? Just because.

The book comes out September 19, 2023 but you can pre-order on sites like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or on the book’s official site.

Agent Elvis

It’s the year of Elvis and Netflix just announced a new animated show called Agent Elvis, which reimagines Elvis Presley as a spy. McConaughey will voice the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and both he and Priscilla Presley will serve as executive producers. Agent Elvis premieres this March on Netflix. Watch the first official teaser below.


Kevin Costner is out and McConaughey is in! OK, so we can’t actually confirm this one but rumor has it that Kevin Costner is leaving Yellowstone. In his place, Deadline reports that Taylor Sheridan has tapped McConaughey to join the Yellowstone universe in his place. If it’s true, MM will be reunited with his former Dazed and Confused co-star and pal Cole Hauser.
