Here's one of those actor/actress pairings that sounds so perfect it feels crazy that it hasn't happened before. Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon are in talks to star in Mud, as soul mates who are separated but trying to make their way back to each other. McConaughey plays title character Mud, who is a charismatic fugitive on the run from bounty hunters to get back to his love Juniper (Witherspoon). Young actor Tye Sheridan (recently seen in The Tree of Life with Brad Pitt) also has a significant role as a 14-year-old kid who befriends Mud and helps with his escape plot.
