This unit resulted in a solid bingo battle on Sunday evening, which the actor organized via Zoom to isolate residents of the Enclave, an assisted living community in Round Rock, Texas.
According to CBS, residents of the facility asked McConaughey last September to join them for a game; he belatedly accepted the invitation when he was also locked out with his mother, wife and children.
After the bingo, he answered questions from residents, many of whom were holding McConaughey’s key quotes on pieces of green paper (referring to his assurance in last month’s video that red lights will eventually turn green ). Topics would include his ancestry and his favorite drink.
“It was a wish come true,” said Molly Davis Nedley, the store’s sales manager, at a local Austin television station. “The residents loved seeing Matthew and his family and enjoyed hearing him talk about what he is doing to overcome this crisis.
“It gave them hope and was the boost they needed to get through this lonely and difficult time. “
McConaughey’s current project is a sequel to Sing, the successful musical animation in which he expresses the Impressionist Koala Buster Moon.
He is also a practice professor in the media studies wing of the University of Texas at Austin.
