On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Matthew McConaughey admitted to being a fan of reality TV, especially 'Celebrity Apprentice.' McConaughey weighed in with his opinion on the competition's strongest players, the relationship between Star Jones and NeNe Leakes, and the ever-loopy Gary Busey.
McConaughey identified two players in particular with the potential to go far. "I think, who looks like they could be good at it, is going to be that John Rich," he said. "Star Jones is good at it. She's a diva, but she's good at it. Even when she's not team leader, she's taking control back there."
McConaughey suspects tension will flare between Leakes and Jones, especially when Leakes is put in the position of project manager. "Wait until NeNe's the project manager and has to tell Star what to do," he said. "That's going to be fun."
In terms of Busey, McConaughey had a good laugh as the actor recently led his team to a win. "It was fun the other night. He won. I'm not sure if he knows why he won or how he won, but he did win. He's fun to watch," he said.
