Matthew McConaughey Likely Won't Return for 'Magic Mike 2'

Matthew McConaughey hits the red carpet at the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday (June 19) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 44-year-old actor is nominated this evening for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his work on True Detective!

Matthew‘s Magic Mike co-star Gabriel Iglesias has said in a new interview that the hunky star most likely will not reprise his role in the sequel.

“Word has it Matthew is probably not going to be involved in this one,” Gabriel said. “Because he’s worth a lot of money… that whole Oscar thing, the nerve right?

    Why would he want to associate himself with this total garbage?

    I love this man as an actor, but he still has not returned to his leading man look since he dropped all that weight for an earlier movie!! Please bring back your leading man gorgeousness!! PLEASE?

    @Martha:

    If he didn’t consult a nutritionist, this is probably how he’s going to look from now on.

    Magic Mike is for younger and up and coming, he doesn’t need to do that again. I agree that something is off about his looks since he lost weight. I was never into him like that, but he doesn’t look well. He’s turned into a fine actor thought.

    He was sooo brilliant as Rust Cohle in True Detective. It would sort of be backtracking doing Magic Mike.

    Also he doesn’t seem able to put the weight back on since he lost so much for Dallas Buyers Club. Maybe he can no longer bulk up to Magic Mike proportions.

    His looks definitely have changed but I kind of prefer him thin like in True Detective. He was too pretty boy before and I think that also prevented him from getting serious roles, he only got cast because of his looks. There are plenty of hunky actors, there are only a few great actors and he now definitely is one of those.

    Great actor! Says:

    Matthew is great actor and a human being! Happy for all his success. I hope he is the leading man in another indie. I wonder if indie productions can still afford him?

    Nicole Says:

    His next role is in Interstellar, probably the biggest movie of the year, but he is following that up with a Gus Van Sant Sea of Trees, a small indie so he is staying true to his indie roots.
