Matthew McConaughey is living life by his own rules in Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum.

In a PEOPLE exclusive clip from the wild comedy, the 49-year-old actor is unrecognizable as the titular beach bum, Moondog.

The comedy also stars Isla Fisher as Minnie, Moondog’s wife, and Snoop Dogg as Lingerie, Moondog’s friend. In the movie, Moondog has taken to living in the Florida Keys, while his wife and daughter, Heather (Stefania LaVie Owen), live in Miami.

The scene finds Moondog calling up Minnie to discuss Heather’s upcoming wedding.

Korine is best known for writing and directing 2012’s Spring Breakers starring James Franco and Selena Gomez.

The Beach Bum also stars Zac Efron, Martin Lawrence and Jonah Hill. The movie made headlines in May when McConaughey revealed that Snoop Dogg had tricked him into smoking real marijuana during one scene.

“I went to the prop man to make sure I have the prop weed which is like crushed oregano,” McConaughey said on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. “[During filming], we pass back and forth and all of sudden at the end he goes, ‘Yo Moondog, that ain’t prop weed, that’s Snoop Weed.’ I was like, ‘Oh you son of a gun.’”

He continued, “The next 9 hours were a lot of fun but I don’t think we used one word in the English language.”

The Beach Bum blazes into theaters March 29.
