The university said Thursday that the actor has signed on to teach a course in the Moody College of Communication this fall.

McConaughey, who graduated from UT in 1993 with a radio-television-film degree, has starred in dozens of movies over the years, including “Dazed and Confused,” “Bernie,” “Magic Mike” and “Dallas Buyers Club.”
