Before They Were Stars (3-for-1 Special): Matthew McConaughey, Matthew Fox & Philip Seymour Hoffman in “My Boyfriend’s Back”

My Boyfriend’s Back was a 1993 horror-comedy about a teenage boy who returns from the dead as a zombie and becomes romantically involved with a girl he likes. The film obviously has some thematic similarities with the current zombie romantic comedy, Warm Bodies, but it’s otherwise completely forgettable… well, except for the fact that it features early roles for Philip Seymour Hoffman, Matthew Fox and Matthew McConaughey (at 0:56 of the last clip)! In addition, Renee Zellweger also had a small role in the film which wound up in the cutting floor. Along with Dazed and Confused and Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, it seems like McConaughey and Zellweger were contractually obligated to do all their early roles together.
