Rooster McConaughey gets own reality show

Tbdroostermcconaughey052808 While you were trying to decide whether to watch the latest crop of reality shows, truTV has announced that Matthew McConaughey's brother Rooster (a.k.a. Michael) will star in a new series called Black Gold -- not to be confused with Matt's movie Fool's Gold.

The show will focus on Rooster's company Chapter 11 Pipe, which supplies pipes for oil rigs, the New York Daily News reports. It will follow him as he helps people find more juice in Texas so they can eventually charge you $4 a gallon or more. The company producing Black Gold is the same one that brought us Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers.

You may remember Rooster as the guy who named his kid Miller Lyte, after his favorite beer. It's amazing he's related to a guy who knocked up Camila Alves.
