PICS: Matthew McConaughey is the ultimate beach bum in new movie

Cape Town – Matthew McConaughey's latest role is a big departure from the dramatic turn his career has taken in recent years.

In the comedy Beach Bum McConaughey plays Moondog, a rebellious and lovable rogue who lives life on his own terms. 

The actor was pictured on set in costume and if they are anything to go by it looks like the audience will be in for a wild ride. 

McConaughey can be seen wearing a blonde wig and some colourful attire including a floral and fire ensemble. 

Also pictured on set are his co-stars Isla Fisher who plays Moondog's wife and Snoop Dogg.
