It is unlikely that you will keep your job after an emotional breakdown and suicide attempt. Owen Wilson's hospitalization came right before his production schedule on Tropic Thunder meant a quick replacement was necessary, but who?

McConaughey a Replacement for Tropic Thunder

While Tropic Thunder isn't as fitting as Surfer, Dude, it's close. Matthew McConaughey will join Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., Nick Nolte, Bill Hader and Steve Coogan on the set of the Stiller-directed DreamWorks comedy, Tropic Thunder.

Tropic Thunder is about a group of actors who gather on a remote island to shoot a big-budget war movie and are forced to become the soldiers they are playing.

While late notice, McConaughey only needs to take a week out of his schedule to shoot for the role.

McConaughey recently wrapped Fool's Gold and the S.R. Bindler-directed Surfer, Dude.

Tropic Thunder is currently lensing in Hawaii.
