More than two decades ago, Matthew McConaughey auditioned for the role that would jumpstart his career: David Wooderson in Richard Linklater's 1993 cult classic, "Dazed and Confused."
Criterion Collection released his audition tape on Monday -- and it's the actor at his finest!
In the clip, the Oscar-winner dishes out his lines flawlessly as he pretends to be behind the wheel of a car. The best part? He's rocking some seriously sexy shaggy blonde hair and an MTV "Headbangers Ball" tour shirt.
No one could play the ultra cool, yet slightly creepy character like Matthew, right?!
The "Dallas Buyers Club" star recently revealed the story behind his iconic line, "Alright, alright, alright."
"So I was sitting in the car, nervous because I was about to have my first acting scene and I was improvising it," he told Newsweek. "I thought, 'Who's my man? Who's my man?' I'd been listening to this live Doors album where Jim Morrison barks out between two of the songs, 'All right, all right, all right, all right!' I didn't know what it meant."
"So I was like, OK, Wooderson: I'm about rock 'n' roll, weed, cars, and women. I'm in my car, I'm listening to Nugent's 'Stranglehold,' and I'm high. And there's the woman. I got three out of four. 'All right, all right, all right!' I figured I was batting .750, so that's what the three 'All right's' were about," he continued.
