The 50-year-old Oscar winner recently watched his audition tape for the film "Dazed and Confused" for the first time and shared his reaction on Twitter.

According to IMDb, "Dazed and Confused" is only the actor's third role, the first being an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" followed by a Trisha Yearwood music video.
