Matthew McConaughey was spotted stepping in front of the camera in Los Angeles Saturday.
Looking suave in a baby blue suit, the actor, 52, marched along a downtown street followed by a mob of extras. He also sported a white button-down and beige shoes, a casual but-classy look.
The scene for Salesforce commercial, with whom he is a brand partner, featured businessmen and women, construction workers and a firefighter, among other professions. McConaughey was at their head, looking determined.
The pics come on the heels of the announcement that McConaughey‘s movie Dallas Sting would be shelved for good, only six weeks ahead of principal photography.
According to The Hollywood Reporterproduction company Skydance Media scrapped the project — a biographical movie based on Bill Kinder, a legendary women’s soccer coach from the ’80s, with McConaughey playing Kinder.
The outlet reported that producers on the film reportedly received “disturbing allegations surrounding aspects of the true story on which the drama was based.”
According to The Daily Mailthe movie was scrapped after anonymous accused against Kinder, 83, were sent to the production company. In a letter from an unknown source, Kinder was accused of calling players by “inappropriate nicknames” and touching one player “outside their clothes” 40 years ago, The Mail reported.
Talking to the outlet, the coach denied the accusations and said the letter “was pretty cryptic.”
“There was nothing there, nothing ever happened,” Kinder said.
Skydance Media did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment, nor did McConaughey’s rep.
