SAG Award Nominations Throw Weight Behind 12 Years A Slave, The Butler
SAG isn’t always right. Last year, the group accurately predicted that Ben Affleck’s Argo would have a big night at the Oscars. But the year prior, SAG went with The Help over the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner, The Artist.
Operation Kino 137 Review: Celebrating The McConaughssiance In Dallas Buyers Club
This week we're packing our trunks full of illegal prescription drugs and crossing the U.S.-Mexico border as we join the Dallas Buyers Club, which was both a real group that got HIV-treatment drugs from Mexico and also a new movie starring Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto and Jennifer Garner. To join us we've brought in Nathaniel Rogers of The Film Experience, and because he's with us and David isn't, we even get to indulge in a little Oscar season talk. Nobody tell David!
Dallas Buyers Club Cast Talks The McConaughey Renaissance, Amazing Transformations And More
Based on a screenplay by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack, the film tells the story of Ron Woodroof (McConaughey), a wild-living Texas electrician and bull rider who one day discovers that he has been diagnosed with HIV and given only 30 days to live. Unwilling to go down without a fight, and also unable to afford the only medications available to patients, he travels down to Mexico where he discovers a full spectrum of holistic treatments...
Toronto Film Festival: Matthew McConaughey Shines In The Dallas Buyers Club
Dallas also confirms what many of us suspected: McConaughey officially leaps into this year’s Oscar pool with both feet, and the significant “splash” he generates should ensure that other aspects of Vallee’s stirring production get “wet” in the process.

Matthew McConaughey had so many strong performances last year, in so many different films, that it seemed possible to many of us that the actor could snag his first-ever Oscar nomination. It didn't work out-- and damn you, Academy, for not even bothering to nominate "Ladies of Tampa"-- but McConaughey is back this year with what might be his strongest role yet, in The Dallas Buyers Club
Jared Leto Shows Off His Emaciated Dallas Buyers Club Physique
Last month Matthew McConaughey shocked us all, shedding serious pounds for The Dallas Buyers Club, where he'll play an AIDs patient in the early days of the epidemic. Soon thereafter, we got a first glimpse of his co-star Jared Leto in costume and looking gaunt, but now Leto's giving us all a closer look at the weight he's dropped...
First Look At Jared Leto In Drag For Dallas Buyers Club, Steve Zahn Joins
As a frontman of the rock band 30 Seconds to Mars, Jared Leto is no novice when it comes to sporting eyeliner. But for his role in Jean-Marc Vallée's scandalous biopic The Dallas Buyers Club Leto was asked take his androgyny act a few steps farther, playing an AIDS-afflicted cross-dresser called Rayon.
Matthew McConaughey Shedding Pounds To Play HIV Patient On Screen
That Magic Mike physique is out the window, isn’t it? It kind of has to be. Woodroof – if you don’t know his story – was an electrician who contracted AIDS, and was told by his doctors to give up hope and await the inevitable. He didn’t. Instead, he explored the covert world of underground pharmacies that dole out experimental (but effective) HIV drugs that aren’t approved in the U.S.
Gael Garcia Bernal To Play AIDS Patient With Matthew McConaughey In Dallas Buyers Club
The report describes Bernal's role as "showy," and as an "effeminate member of the club" in which other AIDS patients also receive the treatment drugs. Dallas Buyer's Club has been a passion project for McConaughey for years, and clearly after this year's success of Magic Mike and (to a lesser extent) The Paperboy, McConaughey is in a position where he can get the movie made
