The Weird: The Al Yankovic Story trailer is magnificient 
May 3rd, 2022 under Harry Potter, Roku, Weird Al Yankovic. [ Comments: none ]

Roku released the first trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story with Daniel Radcliffe in the title role.

All I will say is that Harry Potter worked his magic, both literally and figuratively, because that is brilliant. It reminds me of Weird Al’s music video, I Lost on Jeopardy.

Radcliffe was born to play this role, and he deserves all the accolades he is going to get for it.

When it comes to the biopic, I can’t wait to see what new things we learn about the most famous accordion player in the World!

The Movie of the Week is coming to The Roku Channel later this year. It is not the only thing coming to channel this year. To see what else will be streaming there for free, then click here!

In case you haven’t heard, Roku is doing a biopic about Weird Al Yankovic with Funny or Die. Last week, we saw Daniel Radcliffe in character because he is playing the title role.

Today, we found out that Evan Rachel Wood will be playing Madonna, and Shlock Rocker shared a photo of her as the singer. Weird Al covered her song Like a Virgin and parodied it into Like a Surgeon to become one of his biggest hits.

Rolling Stone also revealed who is else is starring in the movie. Rainn Wilson is playing the legendary radio host, Dr. Demento, who gave Weird Al his big break. Toby Huss and Julianne Nicholson will play his late parents, Nick and Mary. Their death still haunts me to this day.

Daniel Radcliffe transforms into ’80s Weird Al Yankovic

Daniel Radcliffe was born in 1989. By that year, Weird Al Yankovic already had several hit singles, records, along with the cult classic movie UHF.

However, that didn’t stop Roku from hiring Harry Potter to play the Schlock Rocker in the Funny or Die biopic about the musician’s wild and crazy life. Looking at this photo, I can totally see why they went they did. It is as though everyone won on Jeopardy instead of the fact that they lost on Jeopardy, baby.

It is like we went into a time machine and were transported back to that version of Weird Al.

Daniel Radcliffe lands the role of a lifetime!

If you thought that Daniel Radcliffe’s greatest role was Harry Potter, you were wrong. That is because today, Roku announced that he will be playing the title role in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. The actor better be prepared for awards season because he is going to win them all, including best actress!

“When my last movie UHF came out in 1989, I made a solemn vow to my fans that I would release a major motion picture every 33 years, like clockwork. I’m very happy to say we’re on schedule,” said Yankovic. “And I am absolutely thrilled that Daniel Radcliffe will be portraying me in the film. I have no doubt whatsoever that this is the role future generations will remember him for.”

As you can tell, this is going to be a very serious biopic about the Schlock Rocker. That is why Weird Al teamed up with Funny or Die’s Eric Apple, who is writing the film with the singer and directing it. “When Weird Al first sat me down against my will and told me his life story, I didn’t believe any of it, but I knew that we had to make a movie about it,” Appel said.

I can’t wait to see how they tell Weird Al’s story. Actually, I am more excited to see Radcliffe will look with a curly wig and mustache. That is going to make it all worth it.

Production begins next month on the telemovie.
