It looks like Austinite Matthew McConaughey’s streak of critically acclaimed performances will continue with ‘The Dallas Buyers Club.’ McConaughey plays Ron Woodruff, a hard-living, heterosexual man in 1985 Dallas who starts an illegal drug ring after contracting HIV. The movie, a passion project of McConaughey’s that saw the actor lose a lot of weight, is scheduled to open in New York and L.A. on November 1.
