Were you confused by True Detective’s rambling monologues about death, God, and the M-brain theory? Matthew McConaughey wasn’t. As the actor told GQ, “I spent many, many, many, many, many, many hours, if not days, writing to Nic Pizzolatto and asking, ‘What are you saying here? What does this mean? Why is he saying it now?’” After all that effort, he probably even knows which lines were plagiarized. McConaughey adds that, since the show aired, he’s been inundated with offers to play more cops, “but none of them could wear the jockstrap of Rusty Cohle.”
