Love Matthew McConaughey? Of course you do.
Now here’s the good news: You can not only meet the Oscar winner, but star alongside him in his latest movie, “The Beach Bum.”
Even better news: The flick, which costars Snoop Dogg as himself, is being shot right here in Miami, reports Local 10. Well, Key West. Cameras start rolling about a month.
Producers are hosting an upcoming, open casting call for extras of all ages and races who may have a line (or two or three) to ride on buses; appear in courtroom scenes and hospitals; motel guests; and customers going in and out of a gas station.
Interested? They are also looking for upscale “Palm Beach types” and hipsters; beach bums and “touristy looking” people; and a “scrawny” motel clerk.
Bonus for weed lovers: “The Beach Bum” is about stoners.
The flick may even be released in old school Smell-O-Vision.
“It’s a comedy with Matthew McConaughey and Snoop Dogg, about marijuana fans a la Cheech and Chong,” director Harmony Korine told French entertainment site Telerama. “I would very much like to see the film, when it’s released, be shown in rooms that spread curls of marijuana [smoke]. It is possible in some states, such as California, that have legalized this drug for [medical use]. We already have about 30 rooms that have accepted.”

The best part? You get paid! The pay is $119 per 12 hours or $68 per eight hours, with the possibility for overtime.
