Daniel Radcliffe stars in trailer for ‘WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story’

Prepare yourself to get weird, as an official trailer for the WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story has arrived. The The “unexaggerated true story” was written by Yankovic and Eric Appel and stars Daniel Radcliffe as the biopic’s titular character.

Early press indicates that the forthcoming film will hold “nothing back, exploring every facet of Yankovic’s life, from his meteoric rise to fame with early hits like ‘Eat It’ and ‘Like a Surgeon’ to his torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle.”

Check out the official trailer below.

The film also stars Rainn Wilson and Evan Rachel Wood (as Madonna!) and is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8th.

Radcliffe spoke to Good Morning America about starring in the film and the process of working with Yankovic earlier this year.

“He’s the best,” Radcliffe said of working with Yankovic. “I know everyone says this about him, but it’s so lovely to meet somebody that you look up to and you know as a hero to so many people, and to have them just be kind and fun and sweet. I can now go to my grave saying that I’ve had accordion lessons with Weird Al.”

WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story receives a wide release exclusively on The Roku Channel on November 4th.
