Matthew McConaughey's acting ascendancy has been swifter than a soaring flare. Before he was an Oscar winner, he spent most of his career playing bongos and getting partially naked with Lance Armstrong. In his down-time, he made a string of piss-poor rom-coms that were essentially interchangeable and all resolutely terrible. Prior to his amazing run of form over the past two years, his brightest cinematic spot was probably in Dazed and Confused, the seminal first-day-of-the-rest-of-your-life comedy where the chill Texas bro played a chill Texas bro.
His original audition tape has just emerged, and you can see how naturally the role came to him. He's also wearing a Headbangers Ball tee with Anthrax scrawled as the headline act on the back. Clearly it was a righteous year for Matthew.
