Alfred Morris loves to watch movies.
He especially loves to go to the theater, and then go out and add to his large DVD collection.
So it should come as no surprise that Morris is well aware of the work of actor Matthew McConaughey.
Anyway, Morris on June 4 will be joining the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation in its first-ever “Movies With Morris” event, in which Morris and several of his teammates (currently scheduled to attend are Chris Baker, Darrel Young, Nick Sundberg, Ryan Kerrigan and Robert Griffin III) will treat attendees with a movie of their choice, and a bunch of other goodies.
Morris went on the set of Redskins Nation today to promote the event, but was given a bit of breaking news by host Larry Michael:
McConaughey — a huge Redskins fan — is now confirmed to also be in attendance at Movies With Morris, which is honoring the running back for winning the team’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award last season.
You can see Morris’ reaction to the news above — it was classic. I was in the room and can legitimately say it was a surprise to the Pro Bowler, who gushed about McConaughey’s Academy Award-winning work.
