Matthew McConaughey Has a Brother, and His Name Is Rooster, Because Of Course It Is

This is one of those things that I know, then always forget, and then still managed to be surprised every time I re-learn it: Matthew McConaughey has a brother named Rooster. Rooster acts pretty much like you’d expect a guy that’s named Rooster would act (I’m always reminded of David Sedaris’ little brother, Rooster, who is pretty much the same guy).

Rooster is 15 years older than Matthew, hangs out with Robert Duvall, and apparently names his children after alcoholic beverages (his kids’ names are Miller Lyte and Margarita Olympia). Rooster appeared on Jimmy Kimmel last night with a birthday present for Howard Stern that Kimmel couldn’t show on TV because Rooster’s gift was a picture of his penis.

Mostly I just love this clip because it’s impossible for me to believe that Rooster and Matthew come from the same DNA.
