Alright, alright, alright. A handful of lucky students at the University of Texas at Austin will be welcoming Professor Matthew McConaughey to class this fall, IndieWire reports.

The Academy Award-winning actor and UT alum will be teaching a filmmaking course with Hunger Games director Gary Ross, but true to his naked-conga-playing style, he won’t be showing up for the course very often. 

The budding filmmakers will learn the art of the McConaissance through recorded videos analyzing his and Ross’s new Civil War tale, The Free State of Jones. He’s going to make at least one on-campus visit, though.
