Country Music singer/songwriter, Jamey Johnson and actor Matthew McConaughey made news on Hollywood Boulevard recently. McConaughey directed his first music video for Johnson’s Playing the Part, the lead single off his new album The Guitar Song.

The actor met Johnson at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas last year, but McConaughey was already a big fan of the singer’s work. They became close buds and that led to the music video.

No clips have been released yet and the video is set for a later debut, but we couldn’t help notice the gorilla suit McConaughey is wearing. Either he’s making an twisted fashion statement or we can expect to see it in the video. Still, you won’t get that info out of Universal Music Nashville…they’re keeping it on the downlow for now.
