Rooster McConaughey Continues To Make Poorer Decisions Than His Younger Brother

Just Jared reports that Matthew McConaughey’s brother, Rooster McConaughey, has signed on to participate in a new reality TV show:

Pipe supplier Rooster McConaughey aka Matthew McConaughey’s older brother, has signed on as one of the stars of the new reality show, Black Gold.

From the producers of Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers, Black Gold will give viewers a peek into the dangerous lives of Texas oil workers.

The motivations behind this show are obvious:

  1. There
  2. Will
  3. Be
  4. Blood

But that still doesn’t explain why they’re casting Rooster McConaughey. Or why his name is Rooster. Is that just what we call older siblings of famous people who aren’t famous themselves? I also like Just Jared’s post headline: “Matthew McConaughey’s Brother Scores Own Reality Show.” SCORE! He called him up and was like “Who’s on top and who’s on bottom now, Matthew?”
