Matthew McConaughey says he has decided not to run for Texas Governor, updating fans on his long-teased transition into politics. McConaughey explained his decision in a video uploaded to his social media pages, Sunday night.
“As a simple kid born in the little town of Uvalde, Texas, it never occurred to me that I would one day be considered for political leadership. It’s a humbling and inspiring path to ponder. It is also a path that I’m choosing not to take at this moment,” McConaughey said in the clip.
He explains that he still plans to support the state of Texas in other ways for the time being.

That’s the American dream."
The news comes despite Dallas Morning News conducting a recent poll that placed McConaughey eight points above incumbent Greg Abbott in a head-to-head matchup.
December 13 is the state deadline to enter the race.

The Milwaukee Bucks intend to sign veteran center Demarcus Cousins, according to ESPN's Adian Wojnarowski. The team is in need of depth at the position after Brook Lopez suffered a back injury, earlier this season.
The contract is expected to be a one-year, non-guaranteed deal.
Cousins reposted a tweet from Shams Charania announcing the signing on his Instagram story, Sunday night.
Ezra Shaw / Getty ImagesCousins recently spent the 2020-21 season with the Houston Rockets and LA Clippers. Before that, he played for the Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Pelicans, and Sacramento Kings.
Over his 10-year career, Cousins has averaged 20.4 points and 10.6 rebounds per game. Since tearing an ACL and an Achilles in recent years, his production has seen a significant drop. Cousins has been selected to four All-Star teams and two All-NBA teams. He was drafted 5th overall by the Kings in the 2010 NBA Draft. He spent seven years with the organization, where he played the best basketball of his career.
The Bucks are currently 13-8 and once again have championship aspirations with superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. The team took home the title for the first time in 50 years, last season.
Cousins has yet to win an NBA title.

Faizon Love says that the star of a sequel to the classic holiday film, Elf, should be Black, after Will Ferrell shot down returning as the main character. Love appeared as a store manager in the original movie.
“I think Elf 2 could happen with Faizon Love," the comedian recently told TMZ. "What’s wrong with a Black elf? I think America is ready for a Black elf. You had a Black president, you had an orange president, now it’s time for a Black elf. I was surprised [Will Ferrell] he turned down that much money… If they would’ve asked me to do it for some potato chips and $3500 [I’d do it]. He turned down $29 million? Wow. Whoa.”
Jason Merritt/TERM /Getty ImagesFerrell recently explained that he turned down a $29 million dollar offer to star in the sequel because he doesn't think the film will be all that good. In October, he told the Hollywood Reporter that he wouldn't be able to promote a project that he doesn't believe in.
“I would have had to promote the movie from an honest place, which would’ve been, like, ‘Oh no, it’s not good. I just couldn’t turn down that much money,’” he revealed. “And I thought, ‘Can I actually say those words? I don’t think I can, so I guess I can’t do the movie.’”
Check out Love's take on Elf 2 below.
