Watch Matthew McConaughey play a shirtless murder victim on Unsolved Mysteries

McConaughey’s first role was as “Larry Dickens,” a murder victim on the Robert Stack series Unsolved Mysteries. The actor is shirtless, of course, but convincing as an ex-Marine and youth counselor who got killed by a pantless man after a bit of lawn mowing in 1978. [via Vulture]
