On October 3, 2012, it was announced that Swank had dropped out of the film and that Gael Garcia Bernal was in talks to play an HIV patient who meets Woodroof in the hospital and helps him in the club.
When Leto was asked about his role, he said: "This was a really special movie. It's one of the best things I've ever done." He also said that he tried to stay focused on the role because he knew it was an incredible opportunity.
Since the drugs are not illegal, he is able to get them over the border by masquerading as a priest and swearing that they are for personal use. Saks also begins to notice the negative effects of AZT, but is told by her supervisor Dr. Woodroof begins selling the drugs on the street and at gay nightclubs.
He comes back into contact with Rayon, with whom he reluctantly sets up business since she can bring many more clients.
And I think it can be a great movie." Woodroof's sister Sharon Woodroof Braden was reportedly pleased with the casting of Mc Conaughey as Woodroof because he had a similar swagger and personality.
She had shown concern earlier in the development process when Pitt and Gosling were attached, due to their personalities not matching Woodroof's.
In 1985, Dallas electrician and rodeo cowboy Ron Woodroof (Matthew Mc Conaughey) is diagnosed with AIDS and given 30 days to live.
He initially refuses to accept the diagnosis, but remembers having unprotected sex with a woman who was an intravenous drug user.
When he reached as low as 143 lbs, his eyesight began to fail.Upon return, Ron finds out that Rayon died after being taken to the hospital. Saks is also upset by her death, and is asked to resign when the hospital discovers she is linking patients with the Buyers Club, having learned that AZT trials previously conducted in France had proven the drug to be ineffective against HIV.
