'True Detective' Creator Told Matthew McConaughey to Go For an E.G.O.T.!

Matthew McConaughey shows off a very blood-stained t-shirt as he enters his trailer on the set of Sea of Trees on Tuesday (August 5) in Boston, Mass.

The 44-year-old actor was joined on set by his co-star Ken Watanabe.

The creator of True Detective Nic Pizzolatto recently told THR that Matthew would be the perfect candidate for the E.G.O.T. (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards).

“I think he should do a Broadway show so he can get his Tony. And he either needs to record a song for a movie, or do some sort of spoken word album…I told him he should EGOT!” Nic said.

Matthew won an Oscar earlier this year for Dallas Buyers Club, and is up for an Emmy for his work in True Detective.
