Matthew McConaughey was turning heads on South Beach Thursday.
The actor was shooting a scene for his latest comedy “The Beach Bum,” and he was dressed a little on the unusual side: a zanily printed shirt paired with mismatched patterned board shorts, a fanny pack and Ugg style silver boots. The kicker: McConaughey, in a straggly wig, was holding a blow-up doll on his shoulders and riding a skateboard.

In the flick directed by Harmony Korine, the Oscar winner plays Moondog, a precocious man-child with a love of weed (and we’re assuming, blow up dolls).
“The Beach Bum will be a wild, audacious ride and I can’t think of anyone better than Matthew McConaughey to play our hero Moondog, a rebellious charmer in this fast-paced, uplifting and irreverent comedy,” Korine said in a statement before shooting started.
In the snaps caught by paparazzi, McConaughey hams it up on the skateboard, then later falls to the ground with a beer bottle in hand.
This movie, which also costars Isla Fisher, looks like an instant classic.
While Matthew isn’t too active on social media, Fisher has been posting pics of Miami on her Instagram.
