Matthew McConaughey deserves another Oscar…for not so much as cracking a smile during a lengthy, close-up shot in the Lincoln MKZ commercial.
The 45-year-old actor is as serious as ever in two new automobile ads—reprising his role as Mr. Smooth for the umpteenth time to showcase the luxe design of the car he's trying to sell.
In one spot, McConaughey watches the rain fall (!) as he sips his espresso in an empty café. He smiles, chuckling to himself as the last drop falls, steps into the night, where his 2015 Lincoln MKZ awaits. He gets inside and puts the roof back, ditching his "Alright, alright, alright" catchphrase in favor of a new slogan, "There we go."
