Matthew McConaughey sells brother's life as cartoon, Rooster Tales



Tbd-roostertales120109 While truTV's planned reality show Black Gold, starring Matthew McConaughey's brother Rooster, may have fallen off the face of the Earth, don't count a good Texan down. It seems the elder Mac is getting his own animated show, suitably dubbed Rooster Tales. We thought he already was a cartoon.

Matty will executive produce the show, which is based on Rooster's life, Variety reports. That is, it's about a beer-drinking redneck sheriff who marries a Mexican woman and has to deal with her 114 relatives. No, that's not offensive in any way (of course, this is about a guy who named his own son Miller Lyte).

"My brother's life is so unbelievable, we had to animate it," Matthew said of the Fox comedy, which will also be produced by Rooster himself (real name: Mike, which takes some of the fun out of it), Mark Gustawes and and Psych writer Kell Cahoon. Hey, Fox will need some cartoons to replace its slate of Seth MacFarlane vehicles when they finally turn up their toes.
