Matthew McConaughey has enjoyed an interesting career.

This was the film that cemented the idea of McConaughey as one of the most iconic actors out there. Wooderson’s catchphrase, “alright, alright, alright” is perhaps the most memorable of the ’90s. It turns out that this iconic line was actually formulated with the help of ‘The Lizard King’ himself, Jim Morrison.

Ad-libbed, McConaughey took his cues from The Doors frontman, so there’s no surprise that Wooderson is so well-loved. Famously, the “alright, alright, alright” scene was the first he ever shot. Naturally, some hesitation came over what to say and how to deliver it.

Per a report in USA Today, McConaughey was listening to The Doors while getting ready for the scene and was thinking about what to say after many discussions about the character’s temperament with director Richard Linklater. McConaughey had been listening to a live Doors album, and during the show, Morrison said, “All right, all right, all right, all right”, and immediately this became a source of inspiration for McConaughey.

This set the wheel in motion for McConaughey. He recalled that he thought about the main facets of Wooderson’s character. He thought Wooderson was about four things: ….. (kiderül a videóból!)
