The star expressed bewilderment at the audition being 28 years old, having taken place in 1992 before the film's 1993 release.
"You thought you might just have a little three-day job for a summer hobby," he said. "28 years later, I still got a little summer job that turned into a career."
The star would go on to star in several other major movies and TV shows, including "Interstellar," "True Detective" and "Dallas Buyers Club," for which he won an Oscar.
