Here’s Matthew McConaughey’s Dazed and Confused Audition Tape

Matthew McConaughey has had the one-handed, I’m-driving-a-Lincoln pose down for a couple of decades, apparently. The Criterion Collection published a couple of spliced clips yesterday of the actor’s audition tape, from the early ‘90s, which featured him trying out to be David Wooderson from Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused. The footage shows McConaughey’s fake driving skills, self-confidence, and absurd tan, among other gems. Check out McConaughey below, as he appears with his future co-star Wiley Wiggins and perfects his pervy line right before your very eyes.
