Want a trip down memory lane? If you’re a fan of Dazed and Confused and Matthew McConaughey, you get a treat today. The Criterion Collection on YouTube has released the actor’s audition for the early 90s movie. Yeah, we’re all getting old. Embrace it.
First thing you see is McConaughey never ages. I swear, it’s been nearly 22 years and he looks the same. Sure, we can agree that hair needs to stay in the 90s, but other than that, guy looks the same. He was 23 at the time of this taping.
Next thing you’re thinking is what if we got to see Rust Cohle stoned out of his mind on True Detective. Toss in Woody Harrelson losing his mind and you have season two on lock.
The tape features one of the films more notorious lines – “that’s what I love about high school girls, man. I keep getting older, they stay the same age.”
It’s always crazy seeing a movie stripped down to an audition. You essentially get to see the sausage made. It’s never pretty, but we don’t complain when it’s being consumed
