Alright, alright, alright - there's a new McConaughey in town!

The actor's big brother, Rooster, is the star of a new Shark Tank-style show in which people invest their money with Texas entrepreneurs.

And Rooster, 60, is perfect for the part: he is a self-made multimillionaire whose fortune was earned as a pipe supplier for Texas Oil. He also owns a cattle ranch.
