His 'A Time to Kill' speech
Remember the heyday of John Grisham? Before there was Dan Brown churning out novels about Church conspiracies, there was Grisham churning out novels about the seeded underbelly of the legal system. When his best-seller “A Time To Kill” was optioned in 1996, there was some consternation about casting McConaughey as rookie lawyer Jake Brigance. After all, audiences were most familiar with his face as the “All right, all right, all right” guy from “Dazed and Confused.” It was a risk worth taking though. McConaughey knocked it out of the park with his closing monologue (GO WATCH IT RIGHT NOW), which definitely help pivot his career into more serious roles.
