Matthew McConaughey began his career as an actor some 23 years ago after taking on the role of a murder victim in Unsolved Mysteries back in ’92, though he only gained popularity after playing David Wooderson in Dazed and Confused — where the first “Alright, alright, alright” was documented. Since then, Matthew has played a substantial number of curious characters from the rental truck guy in Glory Daze, Tip Tucker in Larger Than Life, and Connor Mead in the abominable Ghosts of Girlfriends Past to award-nominated roles like Jake Brigance in A Time To Kill, Ed Pekurny in EDtv (the second time he starred alongside Woody Harrelson before the two worked together in True Detective), Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club, and Mark Hanna in The Wolf of Wall Street. And during the interims when he wasn’t starring in movies? He was playing lead roles in music videos for country singer Trisha Yearwood and pop punk band Butch Walker and the Black Widows. With a career this diverse and long, supercut experts Burger Fiction has compiled every project the Texan actor had worked on to properly display his versatility.
