Rooster McConaughey brother of actor Matthew McConaughey is starring in the reality show Black Gold, which documents the lives of Texas oil drillers.
Despite his newfound foray into showbiz, McConaughey isnt ready to take off for Tinseltown.
He says, Im doing too good at what I do. I dont mind reality TV because I dont have to remember lines and I can just be myself. They wont pay me what they pay those other guys to play someone else. Im not good looking enough.
But theres still a chance another McConaughey will hit Hollywood in the future, since Roosters son, who he named Miller Lyte after his favorite beer, has something that sets him apart from others.
McConaughey says, Im gonna wait for him to make his own mind up, but having a handle like that will help him. People will remember him with a name like that.
Black Gold premieres this Wednesday (Jun. 18) on truTV.
