Beginning this fall, actor Matthew McConaughey will have another role to add to his extensive portfolio. The Academy Award-winning actor is set to become a professor at the University of Texas, Austin. The class he will be leading will be centered on taking a film from script to screen.

According to the Washington Post, the "Interstellar" actor will be teaching at the Moody College of Communication, which is a department he has been teaching in since 2015. As for the new offering, it is a class that "involves walking through an entire motion picture from the first draft of the script to postproduction and release," states Jay Bernhardt, dean of the communications college. Additionally, Bernhardt shared that it will also delve into what's happening in boardrooms and studio lots.

"It's the class I wish I would have had when I was in film school," the producer said, adding, "Working in the classroom with these students gives me the chance to prepare them. Making movies, turning words on paper into film, is both a science and an art - no matter the time or generation."

McConaughey is not a stranger to the university as he himself earned a film degree from the institution in 1993. Aside from his personal accomplishments, he has also been seen as an asset to the university by both faculty and students.

"He has a passion for teaching, and for all things cinematic, that is palpable, even infectious," stated Noah Isenberg, chair of the department of radio-television-film.

Due to the promotion from visiting lecturer to professor, it is said that McConaughey will now have the flexibility to teach other classes, lead workshops and mentor students. As for how the course itself is set up, it is said that the actor will use footage that he shot while on set and then show it to the students so that they can see what it's truly like behind the scenes of a production.

As seen on UT's site, fall 2019 seems like it will focus its study on "The Gentlemen" and "Mud," with a scheduled visit from director Jeff Nichols sometime during the semester.

"We are proud to welcome Professor McConaughey to officially join our world-class faculty," Bernhardt said after the announcement, adding, "Matthew cares deeply for our school and our students, and we are thrilled that he shares his time and talent to help prepare the next generation of media leaders and innovators."
