So from Harry Potter to Weird AL man this dude has range… So to show his commitment to unusual and interesting acting work, actor Daniel Radcliffe would be playing the iconic “Weird Al” Yankovic in a new, exceedingly true biopic of the legendary parody musician. The first teaser for the movie has arrived via Yankovic himself.
The film, at least according to official synopsis, will chart Yankovic’s rise to fame through his early parody tunes, as well as “his torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle”.
Initial imagery of Radcliffe showed that he had the hair (well, a wig, unless he went full follicle method) and the accordion-slinging down pat. Now the trailer proves he has the voice and mannerisms too.
