We’re undecided about this casting concept. Matthew McConaughey’s mother needs to play Mrs. Robinson, the lady who seduces the titular character in ‘The Graduate’…a job that she needs her son to tackle.
Nicely, this is able to create an attention-grabbing on stage dynamic. Matthew McConaughey, 49, revealed his 86-year-old mom’s film pitch throughout his look on The Graham Norton Present on Dec. 7, and we’re very involved. “Her pitch is that this: remake The Graduate,” the White Boy Rick star mentioned, and up to now, we have been on board. However within the phrases of his mother Mary Kathlene McCabe, she then mentioned she’d be “the Ann Bancroft character” (AKA, seductress Mrs. Robinson), and her son could be “the Dustin Hoffman character”…you recognize, the faculty graduate who enjoys an affair with Mrs. Robinson! Seeing that Mrs. Robinson and the faculty graduate take pleasure in romps within the movie, we hope no executives choose up on this concept, for the sake of our eyes.
“And what does everybody immediately say? ‘Wait a minute, that’s fairly bent,’” Matthew continued. Nicely, “bent” is placing it flippantly. Nonetheless, the actor’s mother is unfazed. “And he or she’s instantly like, ‘Oh knock it off, I’ve seen it earlier than. It’s not that massive of a deal.” What films are you watching, Mrs. McCabe!? Should you don’t consider it, watch the Magic Mike actor say these phrases himself…upon listening to them, our face was the identical as John Cena’s, who was sitting by Matthew.
We’re hoping that is only a joke, informed in true McConaughey fashion. However he’s talked about the identical pitch in a January 2017 look on ABC’s Popcorn With Peter Travers! The 2 are shut (as you’ll be able to inform by her film pitch), as Matthew additionally revealed in the course of the interview that he and his three youngsters with spouse Camila Alves, 36, get to go to his mother “nearly each weekend” after they moved to his native Texas.
We predict Matthew’s mother ought to rethink one other mission (or a extra acceptable cameo). The Oscar winner revealed within the clip above that his mother visits each movie set of his, with one want: to “get in that film.”
