Twenty-two years ago, in the very first screen role in the career of True Detective’s Matthew McConaughey, he played Larry Dickens in an episode of Unsolved Mysteries. Even then you could totally tell that he’d be an Oscar nominated actor someday (no, you really couldn’t) as he transcends every other amateur actor on screen, mowing the lawn with his shirt off, wiping away the sweat, and taking four bullets to the chest and one to the head LIKE A CHAMP.

    So did they catch the guy?

  • CDH Vegas

    According to an interview he did somewhere else, they caught the guy two weeks later.

    At last, McConaughey's killer has been brought to justice.

  • e jerry powell

    That'll teach him to shoot someone who looks nothing like a young McConaughey!

    Oh, and masturbate in front of people's mothers. And kill as many as 11 teenaged girls.

    In fact, Edward H. Bell, self-proclaimed brainwashed rapist/serial killer, sounds exactly like someone Rust would be chasing through the bayous.

    Weird connection, huh?

  • Kenny G.

    Nope...that's not a cap gun.

  • ZombieNurse

    I saw this episode once, years ago, and thought it was him but I was never sure. Now I know. Huh.

  • Truncheon

    Is that Rust's truck?

  • e jerry powell

    It sho do look it. But that was just the truck for the re-enactment. Bell's truck was actually red and white.

  • e jerry powell

    Intense characterization!

    He set the standard by which all crime re-enactment bohunks himbos are measured.

  • Bananapanda

    Oily bohunk.

    Does this remind anyone of Brad Pitt in Thelma & Louise?

  • JustOP

    What strikes me about this guy is he had this image of the 'rom-com guy' or 'suprise suprise no t-shirt again'. But he's had a pretty fucking great career - pretty much all of the 90's and early 00's he was in a steady stream of flicks that recieved great reviews, some serious, some comedic (and also Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but we can just tuck that into a forgotten little corner of our minds for now).

    Then he has this 7 or 8 year period of being in rom-coms/action flicks/comedies. 2010 or so he just stops that and starts acting in all these fantastic, critically acclaimed movies again - Mud, Killer Joe, and now True Detectives.

    Such an odd career trajectory. I wonder what the reason was for that couple of years inbetween.

    Maybe he just wanted to make some quick boatloads of cash?

  • All this did was remind me how much I miss Robert Stack and his awesome voice.

  • cruzzercruz

    Dorothy Lang? Dora Lange?!

    And a new True Detective theory was begotten.
