Matthew McConaughey is one of the most famous and beloved actors in the United States. He has starred in over 60 movies and continues to be a staple in Texas pop-culture. From his Oscar-winning roles to those infamous Lincoln commercials, McConaughey has some of the most quotable lines of all time, which is why everyone, from his co-stars to his biggest fans, loves to try their hand at imitating the movie star's famous Lone Star State drawl.
The fact that McConaughey has had such a successful career has made him a great gag on shows throughout the years, such as SNL, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Late Show With David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and many other late night talk shows.
