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.

New Jersey Actor – Nick Zano

Nick Zano is seen every week on The WB’s What I Like About You, playing the role of Vince, the on-again/off-again love interest to Holly (Amanda Bynes).

Born in Nutley, New Jersey, and raised by his great grandmother, grandmother, mother and two aunts, Zano’s childhood dream of becoming a Navy Seal changed one afternoon when he saw the film Goodfellas and decided to pursue a career in show business.

During high school in West Palm Beach, Florida, Zano was active in the drama and television departments. Throughout his junior and senior years, Zano and fellow classmates produced a weekly off-beat skit comedy show that aired on the school’s television station. While working on the show, Zano also wrote, starred in and directed student films that made their way to the JVC Universal Film Competition, a festival in which over 800 local high schools participate.

Shortly after school, Zano moved to Los Angeles and landed a job developing films and television projects for a small production company. During that time, he also was the associate producer for Living Position, a World AIDS Day television special hosted by Lou Diamond Phillips. It was while he was selling shoes in a trendy Los Angeles boutique that a customer, unbeknownst to Zano, went back to her office and told her supervisors she’d just met a man who would be a wonderful on-air personality. The mystery woman was an employee at MTV. This meeting lead to Zano landing the hosting job of MTV’s MOVIE HOUSE.
Zano recently completed production on two films: the independent feature Love Surreal and Fat Albert, based on the successful cartoon series.

Zano has recently taken up painting and is a big football fan. He now makes his home in Los Angeles, but has stayed close with many of his childhood friends, including his best friend, who was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs the day before Zano landed his MTV job.
