Matthew McConaughey Goes Full McConaughey in Texas Longhorns Pep Talk! Watch and Get Inspired Now!

Feeling a little uninspired today? Can’t believe it’s still not the weekend? Well on days like this, you just gotta keep livin’, man, L-I-V-I-N, and we’ve got just the video clip to help you do exactly that:

Yes, Matthew McConaughey’s visit to a University of Texas at Austin football practice will help you surf the perfect wave of serenity all the way to the Island of Eternal Truth. Or maybe it’s just really funny. You be the judge:

Following what must be the most zen-like pep talk in history (We’ve titled the speech “A Time to Chill.”), McConaughey leads the team in a round of Wolf of Wall Sreet-style chest thumping – a practice that we imagine will now become a staple in locker rooms across the country.

Sadly, at no point does he spark a doob and ask, “Did you score a touchdown last week? It’d be a lot cooler if you did?”

This glorious footage might beat out Matthew and Woody Harrelson’s Roxbury attire at the Emmys as the Most McConaughey Moment of 2014.

To recap: McConaughey won his first Oscar, starred in TV’s most acclaimed new series, and dominated a Scorsese-DiCaprio production by appearing in one scene.

It was the Year of McConaughey, alright, and if Interstellar is as amazing as the trailers make it look 2015 might be…the Year of McConaughey again.

Hey, time is a flat circle, chief. Alright, alright, alright…

Watch True Detective online at TV Fanatic to enjoy more baffling words of wisdom from the Aristotle of Austin.

Suck it, Julia Roberts!

Julia, hashtag suck it.

How to Get Away with Murder Season 1 Episode 1: Class is in Session

Class was in session on How to Get Away with Murder Season 1 Episode 1.

Actually, correction: KILLING class was in session on this new offering from producer Shonda Rhimes.

The new series kicked off on ABC last night with Viola Davis as Annalise Keating, a strict professor at Middleton University who immediately challenged her students to solve some of her law firm’s most difficult cases.

After doing so, Keating chose the best, brightest and most promising to actually work for her… but will they regret being selected?

It certainly seems that way for Wes Gibbins, Connor Walsh, Michaela Pratt and Laurel Castillo, as How to Get Away with Murder flashed forward on a couple of occasions and made it clear these students end up involved in their own murder mystery cover up.

Is that what Keating had planned all along? It’s obvious throughout the premiere that she’s keeping many secrets.

As a Shonda Rhimes series, How to Get Away with Murder centers on intrigue, suspense, sex and, well, some more sex. But it adds a new ingredient to the mix: mystery.

This drama doesn’t just make you wonder who is sleeping with whom. It forces you to wonder who may have killed whom.

Davis, of course, is also nothing short of stellar. She’s been nominated for two Academy Awards for a reason, after all.

If anything, the main character was a bit underserved and underutilized on the premiere, but we’re confident that will change. And we’ll be sticking around to find out.

How to Get Away with Murder has earned a spot on our DVR Series Recording list. How about you? You can watch How to Get Away with Murder online via TV Fanatic if you missed the opener.

Grade the How to Get Away with Murder premiere below:

13 Controversial Pieces of Clothing (Wait… They Actually Made #11?!?)

Earlier this week, Urban Outfitters was forced to issue an apology and pull a sweatshirt off its shelves that it dubbed “vintage.”

For what reason? The sweatshirt represented Kent State University and most definitely looked like it had blood splattered all over it, a clear reference to the tragic shootings in May of 1970 that claimed four lives on campus.

Yeah. Urban Outfitters actually went there. For some reason.

And Urban Outfitters has gone there many times in the past, as this company has become infamous for some seriously scandalous articles of clothing. It’s often been joined by retailers Zara and American Apparel, both of whom should be ashamed of some of their creations.

References to the Nazis? To mental illness? To… a bloody vagina?!?

Why did these companies include these controversies on their clothing? To make headlines, we suppose. As you can see in the gallery below, it definitely worked:

Vintage Kent State Shirt


Urban Outfitters actually put a shirt for sale that it called “vintage” and which recalled a massacre at Kent State in 1970.

Katherine Webb Bikini Photo Makes For a Happy Honeymoon

It’s good to be A.J. McCarron.

The Cincinnati Bengals draft pick may not have a starting quarterback job locked up, but this Katherine Webb bikini photo was taken on his honeymoon.

With Katherine Webb.

Katherine Webb Honeymoon Photo

Katherine Webb married McCarron a week ago Sunday, and the Auburn graduate and former Miss Alabama is now on her honeymoon with A.J.

Either they’re vacationing somewhere warm, or she just likes to model in attire like this for fun. Which we could actually see, given her attractiveness level.

McCarron, who starred at the University of Alabama, has been the personal recipient of these Webb Instagram fashion shows … around the clock.

Brent Musberger may have been inappropriate when he gushed over Webb and turned her into a quasi-celebrity during the 2013 national title game, but …

Wrong he was not.

Independence Day Cast: Where Are They Now?!?

It’s been 18 years since Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum (with help from Randy Quaid) saved the world from aliens in the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day, a film which has grossed more than $800 million worldwide.

With talks of a sequel in the works, and with several of the original film’s principal cast set to reprise their roles, we thought we’d take a walk down memory lane to see where the cast of Independence Day is now.

Will Smith


Will Smith is still making movies, though none have grossed as much worldwide as Independence Day. He WAS nominated for two Oscars, though, so that doesn’t suck.

Will Smith, of course, has gone on to great success in his post-pilot days, earning two Oscar nominations and making headlines for his daughter Willow Smith’s behavior.

Bill Pullman, meanwhile, really, really loves playing Presidents.

His First Lady, Mary McDonnell, was most recently the first lady of the major crimes unit on TNT’s Major Crimes, a spinoff of The Closer. (Which featured Kyra Sedgwick… which probably means Mary McDonnell has met Kevin Bacon.)

Jeff Goldblum and Judd Hirsch also found new roles among the crime dramas, appearing in Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Numb3rs, respectively.

Of the principal cast, the only one who hasn’t found fame, or infamy (looking at you crazy pants Randy Quaid) is Ross Bagley, who played Vivica A. Fox’s son Dylan. He’s now a student at California State University.

Not shabby still. Maybe even healthy for the kid.

Jimmy Kimmel-Clinton Selfie Goes Viral: Eat Your Heart Out, Ellen!

Attention, Ellen DeGeneres: Jimmy Kimmel will see your Bradley Cooper and raise you three Clintons in the selfie he posted to his followers over the weekend:

Jimmy Kimmel, Clintons Selfie

Kimmel took the photo at the Clinton Global Initiative University in Tempe, Ariz., where he interviewed the former first family in front of 1,000 students.

“@TheEllenShow No Brad Cooper but 3 Clintons & a Kimmel @HillaryClinton @ChelseaClinton @Bill Clinton #selfie,” Kimmel tweeted Saturday.

He was referring to DeGeneres’ Oscar “selfie” featuring Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey and Bradley Cooper this month.

Though mightily impressive, Kimmel’s pic going to have a hard time besting Ellen’s star-studded, record-breaking effort at the 2014 Academy Awards.

With regard to politics, the late night talk show host didn’t get too far breaking news about a Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential run, either.

When a student asked about the quadrennial race, the 66-year-old responded only that she is “very much concerned about the direction of our country.”

The former First Lady and Secretary of State is “obviously thinking about all kinds of decisions” regarding her future, according to The Associated Press.

Suzy Favor Hamilton, Former Olympian, Apologizes for Life as an Escort

Suzy Favor Hamilton, a former U.S. Olympian in track and field, issued a formal apology today after her life as an escort in Las Vegas was exposed.

In a story on The Smoking Gun, the 44-year old admitted she has worked under the alias “Kelly Lundy,” for the past year, selling herself for $600 an hour.

Suzy Favor Hamilton Pic

Favor Hamilton lives with her husband, Mark, and seven-year daughter and told the website that the former “tried to stop” her and “wasn’t supportive” of the escort lifestyle at all.

We wonder why.

“I take full responsibility for my mistakes. I’m not the victim and I’m not going that route,” Favor Hamilton said. “I’m owning up to what I did. I would not blame anybody except myself. Everybody in this world makes mistakes. I made a huge mistake. Huge.”

What was the appeal of this vocation? The runner took to Twitter today and tried to explain:

“I was drawn to escorting in large part because it provided many coping mechanisms for me when I was going through a very challenging time with my marriage and my life. It provided an escape from a life that I was struggling in. It was a double life.”

Favor Hamilton competed in the 1992, 1996 and 2000 Olympics; she did not medal in any of the events, but was a nine-time NCAA champion at the University of Wisconsin.

“I cannot emphasize enough how sorry I am to anyone I have hurt as a result of my actions and greatly appreciate the support from family and those closest to me,” the runner Tweeted. “I fully intend to make amends and get back to being a good mother, wife, daughter, and friend.”

Chamique Holdsclaw 911 Tape: Did WNBA Star Try to Blow Up Jennifer Lacy?



Chamique Holdsclaw, the ex-WNBA and University of Tennessee basketball star, is currently free on bail, following her arrest this week for allegedly firing a gun at ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lacy.

Chamique Holdsclaw Mug Shot

But new, disturbing information has leaked out regarding the incident, courtesy of a 911 call placed by a friend of Lacy’s, who was in the vehicle when the Holdsclaw confrontation took place.

This friend describes Holdsclaw as “mentally unstable.”

She goes on to tell the operator that the former Rookie of the Year poured gasoline all over Lacy’s Range Rover, presumably to set it on fire. She specifically says that Holdsclaw attempted to “destroy” the car.

Holdsclaw fled the scene before she could do so and before authorities arrived. She then turned herself in and is clearly in major trouble.
