Matthew McConaughey could very well win his first Oscar this Sunday for Dallas Buyers Club.  Would you like to know what his FIRST role was?

 

Let's go back to 1992, to a very bizarre episode of Unsolved Mysteries.   We see a young McConaughey playing a murder victim named Larry Dickens, who got shot five times and still kept going after the guy who shot him.  In usual McConaughey fashion, he's wearing a sleeveless shirt and exposing his chest.

 

 

It looked like it payed off, because eventually he got a call to play Wooderson in "Dazed and Confused", which technically was his first MOVIE role.

 

Look for the soon to be Oscar winning actor at the :32 mark, and getting shot at 2:34.
