Features

The Renaissance Bro: Matthew McConaughey

The "McConaissance" fueled by Magic Mike is picking up steam: The 43-year-old Texan stars in this month's coming-of-age film Mud, with prestigious roles following later this year in the AIDS drama Dallas Buyers Club and Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. On location in New Orleans, he shows that while he's still the bongo-playing bro we know and love, he's also become a family man who's no longer satisfied with just doing all right, all right, all right.

The 2013 Digital Mavericks

It's time for a status update: These 37 renegades and iconoclasts are using technology to transform the worlds of fashion, business, politics, music, and more.

After one wrong turn, it all unraveled. The true, twisted story of a potentially deadly idol threat.
