HOUSTON - Matthew McConaughey is obviously no stranger to the spotlight. However, this time, it has nothing to do with playing a role on the big screen.

The Academy Award winner and Texas native is scheduled to give the commencement speech at the University of Houston in May. According to the University, they're dishing out $135,000 for him to speak, but UH says McConaughey will be donating that money to charity.
