Ode to Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey in “True Detective.” HBO. 2014.

Lo! There’s hardly an actor more committed
to risks of content and character.  He has made
an impression that even Matt Damon admitted
– a dedication that leaves lesser men afraid.
But there once was a time that belied his talent.
A penchant for super-tan flesh like Peking Duck
and bongos concealed the serious actor within
destined for leading man caliber with style and pluck.
In recent days there’s much to admire:
With critical acclaim, his star will soar higher
as did my fondness for his work in Magic Mike.
So, sing love and praise that once you hid.
It’d be a lot cooler if you did.

      He’s definitely having a moment. Trying to express that in sonnet-form was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. Thanks for checking out my site!
