Roku have released the first official trailer for their new upcoming original film Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, starring Daniel Radcliffe as Weird Al Yankovic. The film will be streaming on The Roku Channel from November 4, 2022.
The film tells the “true” story of Alfred Yankovic, better known as “Weird Al” Yankovic, his beginning interest in the accordion, his discovery by Dr. Demento, his support from Madonna and his overall claim to fame. The film intentionally exaggerates and downright fabricates moments in his life for comical effect.
Starring alongside Radcliffe are Rainn Wilson, Toby Huss, Julianne Nicholson, Quinta Brunson, and Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna. Weird Al himself also has a cameo in the film as a record executive.
