Daniel Radcliffe Sings About Baloney
The first trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story released on Monday.
“Weird Al” Yankovic energetically infuses his biography with all the weary music biopic cliches
The film will show up on Nov. 4 on the Roku Channel.
Featuring Daniel Radcliffe, the trailer shows how the somewhat biopic lends a self-serious tinge to the parody master’s story.
Evan Rachel Wood shows up as Madonna and Al’s life becomes a haze of sex, drugs, and hubris that pushes his family and band away.
Alongside Radcliffe and Wood, Weird will co-star Rainn Wilson and Yankovic's guide, Dr. Demento
Eric Appel directed Weird and co-wrote the script with Yankovic.
