Most of you probably remember that UT announced earlier this summer that the Austinite and Academy Award-winning actor was set to teach a course this fall to some ridiculously lucky students. Well on Monday, the Moody College of Communications tweeted out a photo of McConaughey at the front of his new class.

Joined by “Hunger Games” director Gary Ross, McConaughey is teaching thirty students in a course called Advanced Producing: Script-to-Screen. It’s still not clear how often the UT alumnus will be appearing on campus — he’s expected to teach mostly via recorded videos —  but any McConaughey sighting is usually a good one.

Hook ’em.
