Matthew McConaughey may be an Oscar winner, a household name and a very handsome chap right now but once upon a time he had to kick off his career with his first movie role. And he did it in style in the part of David Wooderson in Richard Linklater's seminal Dazed and Confused.
That film released way back in 1993 and a little time before that McConaughey put himself on tape for the part. Here's what that magical moment looked like, thanks to The Criterion Collection, which recently put out a high definition blu-ray release of the film.
That's a cheery young fellow.
McConaughey will next be on screens in Gus Van Sant's The Sea of Trees, releasing in 2015.
