Matthew McConaughey, who's best know for his roles in Dallas Buyers Club(2013), The Wolf Of Wall Street(2013) and the recently premiered Interstellar, recently let it be know that he would be open to a role in a future Star Wars film. IGN spoke with the Oscar winner at a press conference for Interstellar and asked him, along with several other cast members, who their favorite Sci-fi characters are. McConaughey answered with Chewbacca, and then was later asked if he would be interested in making the jump to a Galaxy far, far away, to which he responded:
“Sure – there’s not anything that I’m not open to embracing” he replied. “I want it to be a quality script, I want a quality character. I want to be a little scared of it. I want to have new challenges. I want to do something… find in a character where I can get to a point where I feel like nobody could be doing this but me. I’m going to have an original experience… an original take. That takes work to get to that point, but whatever the genre I’m wide open.”
