The actor finally revealed the origins of the line while hosting “Saturday Night Live” this week for the first time in 14 years. Instead of rattling off jokes in his opening monologue, McConaughey opted for a story, recounting his journey in his 1993 breakout role.
McConaughey said he wasn’t even thinking about being an actor at the time he was recruited for Richard Linklater’s ’90s breakthrough, but was recruited by a producer in a bar for the role.
After shooting his first scene, which also yielded classic quote, “That’s what I love about these high school girls, man: I get older, they stay the same age,” Linklater decided to place McConaughey in another scene for a previously unplanned appearance.

Onur Tukel is easily one of the most unique filmmakers working today. His style, the way he approaches various topics (genre or not) and turns them on their head, he has such a talent for giving film lovers something different. Whether it’s 2014’s S.O.B. (Summer Of Blood) and its taking on the vampire subgenre and injecting a dose of reality into it, or this year’s Applesauce (arriving on VOD on November 24th via Dark Sky Films), Tukel is a fresh voice in filmmaking, and his style and approach is something to witness. With Applesauce, Tukel tells the story of two couples who are all affected by Tukel’s Ron character deciding to call into a radio show and admit to the worst thing he has done, an admission that leads to getting severed body parts delivered to him, his relationship crumbling and all hell breaking loose. »

Amy Seimetz had a starring role in Shane Carruth’s “Upstream Color,” which proved to be one of the more impressive and confounding films released in 2013. You’d be forgiven for assuming that the duo’s follow-up collaboration would be another dense, trippy, nearly Pynchonian web of mind-bending sci-fi and ultra-impressionistic visuals. Read More: Watch The Trailer For Short 'Everything & Everything & Everything' Starring Shane Carruth And yet, it turns out, quite the opposite is true: Carruth and Seimetz have reunited for a charming new short film entitled “We’ll Find Something.” Carruth is not behind the camera here, which may explain the short's relatively straightforward delivery and structure (directing credit, in this case, goes to Casey Gooden). The result is a pleasant, mostly plotless bit of observational comedy/verbal jousting that occasionally brings to mind the laid back, walk-and-talk verbal fireworks of Richard Linklater’s 'Before' trilogy. Not much really. »

USA Today has unveiled three new photos from Rawson Marshall Thurber's action comedy "Central Intelligence" which opens June 17th. Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart team-up from the project as former classmates who reunite at their 20-year high school reunion - the once fat and nerdy Johnson is now a deadly CIA agent who has been framed and has to enlist the help of the once popular turned mild-mannered accountant Hart.
"Star Trek Beyond" co-scribe Doug Jung has been hired to pen a re-write of the modestly-budgeted, Julius Onah-directed, sci-fi thriller "God Particle" which J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk will produce.
