Rooster McConaughey


A new McConaughey may soon be ruling the Hollywood roost. And he already has the name for it.

While Matthew McConaughey had Fool's Gold, older brother Rooster—his birth certificate says Michael Patrick—will have Black Gold, a new truTV reality show from the producers of Deadliest Catch.

The series, which begins June 18 on the cable net formerly known as Court TV, chronicles men working one of the most dangerous jobs in the world—the race to find oil in Texas.

While the elder McConaughey himself doesn't work the fields, he earns his air time for being a supplier of the pipes used on the oil drills (a business started by father James), which go down roughly 10,000 feet below the earth's surface.

And though producers may not be able to bank on any stunt brother casting, viewers will finally be able to discern whether shirtlessness is in fact a family trait.
