"Dallas Buyers Club" star Matthew McConaughey went to great lengths to get into character as Ron Woodroof, the real-life Texas electrician who became an unlikely AIDS activist after being diagnosed with HIV in the mid-1980s. McConaughey shed more than 40 pounds and pored over 16-plus hours of interview tapes, for example. At a recent installment of the Envelope Screening Series , the actor talked about his preparation and what his "secret weapon" was. McConaughey's first resource was the cache of tapes that screenwriter Craig Borten recorded with Woodroof months before Woodroof's death in 1992.

Reviews of the revue found Britain's the Guardian comparing his performance to Oscar-winning turns as an MC by Gig Young ("They Shoot Horses, Don't They?") and Joel Grey ("Cabaret"), and a breathless - perhaps panting - tribute in the Washington Post called him the best thing about the movie.

METAIRIE, La. - In the summer of 1992, an aspiring filmmaker named Craig Borten drove from Los Angeles to Dallas to see a man named Ron Woodroof. Borten was just a few years out of Syracuse University and didn't know what kind of movies he wanted to make, or if he wanted to make them at all. But he'd read about Woodroof, a fast-living - and, as it happened, deeply homophobic - straight electrician and rodeo habitue who had been diagnosed with AIDS in 1986. First out of self-preservation and then as a grudging crusade, Woodroof began smuggling unapproved drugs from Mexico and other countries, prolonging his life and the lives of thousands of others.
