MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY could win his first Oscar for "Dallas Buyers Club" on Sunday. But did you know his first role was on "Unsolved Mysteries" in 1992?

He played a murder victim named Larry Dickens, who got shot five times and STILL kept going after the guy who shot him. You can check it out online. Also, he's SHIRTLESS through the whole thing, which is fitting.

Or technically, he's in an unbuttoned shirt with cutoff sleeves. So, ALMOST shirtless. And apparently he got some attention for it, because his NEXT role was Wooderson in "Dazed and Confused".
