Watch Daniel Radcliffe Play Weird Al Yankovic in new Biopic Trailer

May 3, 2022

Would would’ve called this in the 80s? They’re making a biopic about ‘Weird’ Al Yankovic called WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story. And Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe stars as Yankovic!

The movie started production earlier this year.

According to the movie’s synopsis: WEIRD: The Weird Al Yankovic Story promises to follow Yankovic’s life from his rise to fame in the music industry to his celebrity love affairs.

Radcliffe told the Hollywood Reporter, “Wearing the Hawaiian shirt is a huge responsibility that I don’t take lightly, and I’m honoured to finally share with the world the absolutely 100 per cent unassailably true story of Weird Al’s depraved and scandalous life.”

Yankovic said, “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.”

There’s no release date set. Yet.

Which 80s artist should have a biopic made about them?
