Matthew McConaughey SNL monologue


Matthew McConaughey opened his “SNL” monologue by saying they rehearsed all week, but they’re not exactly prepared, but they’ll be “OK, OK, OK,” playing off his catchphrase, “Alright, alright, alright.” He then explained how he came up with his signature line. See the video below of McConaughey’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue.

McConaughey said he was in a bar in college when he met a producer, who asked him if he ever acted, and even though he really hadn’t before, he got a part in Dazed And Confused. McConaughey noted he was supposed to only have three lines, but ended up improvising a number of lines including “Alright, alright, alright.”

This is the second first time McConaughey has hosted “Saturday Night Live.” He first hosted back in February 2003, with the Dixie Chicks the musical guest. And while it’s been more than 12 years since McConaughey last hosted “SNL,” his presence has been felt, thanks to a number of impressions of the actor.

Interestingly, unlike most “SNL” hosts, McConaughey actually doesn’t have any upcoming projects that are being released in the next few days or weeks to promote. He will be seen in 2016 in The Sea Of Tree, a Gus Vant Sant movie that takes place in Japan’s Sucide Forest. McConaughey will also star in the Spring in a Civil War film called The Free State Of Jones.
