Watch: Matthew McConaughey's Lost 'Dazed and Confused' Audition Tape

If you watched the Golden Globes on Sunday, you may have picked up on hirsute-faced Matthew McConaughey’s puzzling accent — was he channeling a Civil War colonel? Challenging someone to a duel?

But here’s something stranger: Criterion has released McConaughey’s long-buried audition tape for "Boyhood" Golden Globe champ Richard Linklater’s "Dazed and Confused," the film where he famously quips, in his stoner-drawl, "all right, all right, all right." McConaughey broke out in the 1993 cult comedy as a doobie-loving, twentysomething man-child who preferred chilling with high schoolers over guys his own age.

Watch the tape, featuring a young, swarthy, surfer-haired McConaughey, below.
