Matthew McConaughey stars as a shirtless, sun and substance-loving poet in the first trailer for “The Beach Bum,” an upcoming comedy from director Harmony Korine (“Spring Breakers”).
The Oscar-winning Stern Show guest plays Moondog, a rebellious beach philosopher whose idea of living life to the fullest involves alcohol, women, smokes, lotto tickets, acid, bongo drums, a never-buttoned Hawaiian shirt, and hanging out with fellow Stern Show veteran Snoop Dogg.
“I’m a poet,” he proclaims, just before the teaser shows us a montage of his many debaucheries. “Life’s a fucking rodeo,” Moondog later adds (above). “I’m going to suck the nectar out of it, fuck it raw-dog until the wheels come off.”
McConaughey, whose breakout role was as a stoner in the 1970s-set high school comedy “Dazed and Confused,” is no stranger to embracing zany roles and he’s no stranger to spending time at the beach without a shirt, either. In fact, the actor spoke to Howard all about his roller coaster of a career during his 2017 Stern Show visit, including his stint as Hollywood’s go-to rom-com guy and how the press had once branded him as “shirtless McConaughey on the beach.”
