Jim Carrey reprises his Matthew McConaughey impression on 'Letterman'

Posted on

Sometimes, one actor rolls along who just invites parody—these days, that actor is Matthew McConaughey.

Wednesday night, Jim Carrey went on the Late Show and brought back the Matthew McConaughey impression that he popularized when he hosted last week’s episode of Saturday Night Live. Carrey first lampooned McConaughey in an SNL sketch that poked fun at the actor’s superfluously philosophical, True Detective redux Lincoln car commercials. Letterman requested an impression of McConaughey, which Carrey was totally game for, as he spewed dazed McConaughey-like proverbs while rolling a “booger,” which he calls, “not even a booger anymore, it’s more of an anchor.”

Bonus: Carrey explains why he felt like he never ended up on SNL, which somehow includes a suicidal NBC page.
