The press tour never ends: Matthew McConaughey and director Gary Ross are teaching a college course at the University of Texas at Austin next fall on their movie The Free State of Jones, though, like any smart college professors, the pair is outsourcing as much of the work as possible. The class will mostly consist of prerecorded videos from Ross and McConaughey, though McConaughey, a UT-Austin alumnus, has promised to make “at least one in-person appearance.” 30 lucky students will get lessons from Professor McConaughey. They will be graded on a scale from A to True Detective season two.
