Matthew McConaughey is replacing Owen Wilson in Ben Stiller starrer "Tropic Thunder."

The empty seat left by Owen Wilson in "Tropic Thunder" is finally re-occupied. Variety has brought in report informing that Matthew McConaughey is taking over the role the "Wedding Crashers" star dropped after he was hospitalized for suicide attempt.

As Wilson's replacement, McConaughey thereby will only appear as an uncredited cameo in the project. While late notice, the hunk just needs to take a week out of his filming schedule to undergo his scenes there.

Currently shooting in Hawaii, "Thunder" revolves around a group of actors who come to a remote island to shoot a big-budget war movie, but end up as the soldiers they are playing instead. Cast include big names like Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., and Steve Coogan, among others.
