Watch: Patton Oswalt Gives His Best McConaughey Impression in 'True Detective' Parody Video

Patton Oswalt is a committed fan. Be it “Star Wars,” independent film, or — as illustrated in the brilliant video clip below — “True Detective.” Oswalt has been chiming in on the HBO show since the beginning, offering up helpful clues as well as his (a)typical hilarious commentary on what he saw as a brilliant first season. Now he’s recreated Matthew McConaughey’s interrogation scene from the show, complete with a “Big Hug Mug,” cigarettes, and crushed Lone Star cans to promote his upcoming special on Comedy Central, “Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time.”

Take a look at the video below, and read our interview with Mr. Oswalt about his upcoming stand-up special, “Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time.”
