[ # ] Daniel Radcliffe lands the role of a lifetime!
January 18th, 2022 under Harry Potter, Roku, Weird Al Yankovic

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.
