Jimmy Buffett was in Honolulu this week filming for an upcoming appearance on the CBS show Hawaii Five-O. Buffett will reprise his role as Frank Bama. He has made five prior appearances on the show (November 2011, April 2013, March 2015, January 2017, and March 2018).
The official trailer for the movie “The Beach Bum” is now available. The movie opens in theaters on March 29, 2019.
The Beach Bum follows the outrageous misadventures of Moondog (Matthew McConaughey), a rebellious burnout who only knows how to live life by his own rules. Complete with an all-star cast including Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Zac Efron, Jimmy Buffett, Martin Lawrence, and Jonah Hill, The Beach Bum is the wildly original and subversive new comedy from Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers).
I could tell you that Harmony Korine’s new acid trip of a stoner movie The Beach Bum has Snoop Dogg, a gas mask bong, a coke-addicted parrot, and the biggest joint you’ve ever seen alongside Jimmy Buffett in a hot tub, Jonah Hill eating soft serve, a kitten that drinks PBR, and Matthew McConaughey playing a character who calls himself “Moondog.” I could say all of these things, but trust me: It’s much, much better for you to see them for yourself.

On July 4th, the 38th annual PBS Capitol Fourth Concert salutes the men and women in uniform, as well as their families, on Independence Day. The free concert will be held on the U.S. Capitol’s west lawn. John Stamos is the host of “A Capitol Fourth“, which airs on PBS from 8 to 9:30 p.m. ET.
Extra special this year will be a proposed Beach Boys duet with island music icon Jimmy Buffett, who’s also bringing the cast of his new Broadway musical “Escape to Margaritaville.”
“We’ve talked to Jimmy Buffett about joining us on ‘Kokomo,'” Mike Love said. “I can’t be 100 percent sure until we’ve actually done it, but the talk is leading in that direction. I think that would be a lot of fun. … I think we’ll split the leads. We’re going to record our version of it and then send it to him, just to give him an idea of where we want him to come in.”
Jimmy Buffett will appear on Shark Week’s 30th Anniversary which starts on Sunday July 22nd on the Discovery Channel. He recently spent the day filming for the show near Montauk.
Son of Jaws (working title) — “Over four decades ago, giant great white sharks off Long Island, New York gave rise to the legend of Jaws. But all those big sharks were caught and killed, and they disappeared — until now. With protection, the sons and daughters of Jaws are making a comeback. Dr. Craig O’Connell goes looking for the legendary monsters of Montauk to see if the bloodline of Jaws continues.”
