Oh, and he enlisted a supporting cast that includes Jimmy Buffett, Snoop Dogg, Jonah Hill, Martin Lawrence, Zac Efron and Isla Fisher to boot. Great news: This actually happened and you can watch the first Red Band trailer for Korine's The Beach Bum above.
McConaughey stars as a hard-partying dude named Moondog who seems to spend most of his time hanging out, getting wasted by the water, and yes, even playing bongos. So, yeah, basically McConaughey was born to play this role. Moondog asks a convenience store clerk for some acid in the beginning of the trailer to the tune of "Crimson and Clover", so you know this dude is all about getting mega weird.
“Life’s a fucking rodeo. I’m gonna suck the nectar out of it and fuck it raw ’til the wheels come off,” says McConaughey’s Moondog in the trailer. Well...Alright, alright, alright.
The Beach Bum hits theaters on March 22, 2019, but definitely watch the trailer now to prepare your brain for it.
