“I think me and Matthew are meant for each other,” Snoop said. “It’s supposed to be.”
Snoop Dogg and Matthew McConaughey are starring in the upcoming stoner flick Beach Bum, but not everything that took place on screen was acting, according to an anecdote from the co-stars.
McConaughey plays Moondog, an eccentric Floridian writer, and one day on set, he says that the faux weed he thought he was smoking, wasn’t so faux. Turns out Snoop had switched the stash.
“But I go to Snoop, and I go to the prop man, and make sure I’ve got prop weed,” McConaughey said. “Now, prop weed is not real weed—it’s like crushed oregano and stuff.”
“So we get in the scene, it’s about a six-minute scene. We pass back and forth, and all of a sudden at the end, he goes, ‘Yo, Moondog, that ain’t prop weed. That’s Snoop weed.’ And I went, ‘Oh, you son of a gun.’”
“I didn’t say another word of English, really, the rest of the night,” McConaughey remembered. “You said I rapped a lot.”
Snoop recalls the incident fondly. “I think me and Matthew are meant for each other,” Snoop said. “It’s supposed to be.”
“I agree,” says McConaughey. “It’s like bongs and bongos got together.”
Beach Bum is now in theatres.
