British Actor – Matthew Goode

Matthew Goode, born April 3, 1978 in Exeter, England, is a British actor, best known for his role as Mandy Moore’s romantic interest in the 2004 film Chasing Liberty.

Goode grew up in Devon with a geologist father and a nurse mother who was also an amateur theatre director. Matthew studied drama at the University of Birmingham and classical theatre at London’s Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art.

Goode got his big break when he landed the role of Ben Calder as Mandy Moore’s romantic interest in the 2004 film Chasing Liberty. Beforehand, Goode had played the brother of Inspector Lynley in the BBC production Inspector Lynley Mysteries: A Suitable Vengeance and had parts in the TV-movie Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister and the Shakespearean stage play The Tempest.

American Actor – Matthew McConaughey

The youngest son of a gas station owner, who ran an oil pipe supply business

and mother – substitute school teacher, Matthew McConaughey was born on November 4, 1969 in Uvalde, Texas, USA, but grew up in Longview, Texas where he graduated from the local High School (1988).

Showing little interest in his father’s oil business, which his two brothers later joined, Matthew was longing for a change of scenery, and spent a year in Australia, washing dishes and shovelling chicken manure. Back to the States, he attended the University of Texas in Austin, originally wishing to be a lawyer. But, when he discovered an inspirational Og Mandino book “The Greatest Salesman in the World” before one of his final exams, he suddenly knew he had to change his major from law to film.

Matthew began his acting career in 1991, appearing in student films and commercials in Texas and directed short films as Chicano Chariots (1992). Once, in his hotel bar in Austin, he met the casting director and producer Don Phillips, who introduced him to director Richard Linklater for his next project. At first, Linklater thought Matthew was too handsome to play the role of a guy chasing high school girls in his coming-of-age drama Dazed and Confused (1993), but cast him after Matthew grew out his hair

and mustache. His character was initially in three scenes but the role grew to more than 300 lines as Linklater encouraged him to do some improvisations.

In 1995, he starred in The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1994), playing a mad bloodthirsty sadistic killer, opposite ‘Renée Zellweger’. Shortly thereafter moving to L.A., Matthew became a sensation with his performances in two high-profile 1996 films Lone Star (1996) where he portrayed killing suspected sheriff and in the film adaptation of John Grisham’s novel A Time to Kill (1996), where he played an idealistic young lawyer opposite Sandra Bullock and Kevin Spacey.

The actor was soon being hailed as one of the industry’s hottest young leading man inspiring comparisons to actor Paul Newman. His following performances were Robert Zemeckis’ Contact (1997) with Jodie Foster (the film was finished just before the death of the great astronomer and popularizer of space science Carl Sagan) and Steven Spielberg’s Amistad (1997), a fact-based 1839 story about the rebellious African slaves. In 1998, he teamed again with Richard Linklater as one of the bank-robbing brothers in The Newton Boys (1998), set in Matthew’s birthplace, Uvalde. During this time, he also wrote, directed and starred in the 20-minute short The Rebel (1998).

Later, in Jonathan Mostow’s U-571 (2000), McConaughey portrayed the officer Lt. Tyler in a WW II story of a daring mission of American submariners, trying to capture the Enigma cipher machine. Matthew also took a part in comedies such as The Wedding Planner (2001), opposite Jennifer Lopez and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) in which he co-starred with Kate Hudson.

His most interesting role was playing Denton Van Zan, an American warrior and dragons hunter in the futuristic thriller Reign of Fire (2002), where he co-starred with another young actor, Christian Bale.

Male Actor – Lucky Vanous

Born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, Lucky joined the Army at 18 and was selected to join the 1st Ranger Battalion (Black Berets), the elite anti-terrorist and anti-guerilla response team. In the Rangers he traveled extensively and was trained in many military skills including demolitions, scuba diving and low level parachuting. After completing his duty with the Rangers he attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.

While vacationing in New York with a friend, Lucky was spotted by an agent for the prestigious Elite Modeling Agency, who signed him on the spot. His first assignment found him being shot for GQ MAGAZINE by internationally renowned photographer Francesco Scavullo. During the next five years he traveled and lived throughout Europe and Asia, hiked the Himalayas and made 12 remote excursions into Alaska.

Lucky continued his studies at NYU and Fordham University, studying political science and history, but soon found his academic career put on hold when he landed a role as a construction worker in a Diet Coke commercial. The spot became one of Coca-Cola’s most successful commercial campaigns, which led to appearances successfully promoting Diet Coke throughout the United States and Europe.

Once he made the decision to pursue an acting career, Lucky sought out the best available training – Alan Savage in NY, Howard Fine (Advanced scene study), Groundlings and Jessica Drake (speech) in Los Angeles. He completed his first starring role in the feature film “Chapter Perfect” (Spring 1995), guest starred on the NBC comedy “WINGS” and with Carol Burnett on “ALL MY CHILDREN” anniversary special for ABC, and was selected to co-host part of the 1994 CLIO Awards with Kelsey Grammer.

In 1997 Lucky starred in Aaron Spelling’s “PACIFIC PALISADES”, which aired on Fox and in 1998, starred in feature film, JACK OF HEARTS (1999 release) and guest starred on one episode of PENSACOLA WINGS OF GOLD (aired in January of 1999). In February of 1999 he was featured in HANGING UP, directed by Diane Keaton.

The name Vanous is of Czech origin, and the actor is mostly English and part Czech in ancestry. Lucky’s father, then a nightclub owner and gambler, gave him his first name when he was born in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Enlisting after high school, Lucky worked his way up to become a member of the elite First Airborne Ranger Battalion, earning the right to wear the black beret. He served on the demolition squad, learned how to seize hostile airstrips and military facilities, specializing in low level parachuting and attending military schools including Special Forces Underwater Diving. “It was the greatest experience of my life,” he says. “It helped me grow up.” Lucky’s character in 18 Wheels of Justice shares the actor’s military background, which he finds a useful point of reference in playing the role.

When Lucky was still an infant, his family moved to Los Angeles where his father found work on television crews, first as an electrician, then working up to camera operator on shows such as Petticoat Junction, Green Acres, The Beverly Hillbillies and The Addams Family. “I remember being chased around a set by Cousin Itt when I was about three or four,” Vanous says, suspecting that working in the industry has been unconsciously part of his plan ever since.
