MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY: CHARITABLE CHARMER

Matthew McConaughey‘s j.k. livin foundation was joined today (October 13) by partners from Samsung and Best Buy to encourage kids to lead active lives and make healthy choices at a Los Angeles high school.

As part of the goodwill event, new Samsung technology was installed throughout the school by Best Buy’s Geek Squad.

By partnering with Communities in Schools (CIS), the nation’s largest non-profit dropout prevention organization, the j.k livin foundation provides free fitness and wellness after-school programs that offer teens a safe place to learn and improve responsibility, self-esteem, accountability and commitment.

Meanwhile, Matthew is set to join Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine in Bernie, a dark comedy that will reunite him with his Dazed and Confused director Richard Linklater.

Bernie is set in the small town of Carthage, Texas, and follows Renaissance man/community leader/mortician Bernie (Jack), who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy but very particular widow (Shirley). When he kills her, he goes to great lengths to maintain the illusion that she is still alive. Matthew will play the town’s district attorney, always angling for re-election and suspicious about the widow’s death.

Shooting kicks off next month in Texas.
