WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY new trailer – Daniel Radcliffe becomes Weird Al for a ROKU Biopic

If you’re a Weird Al Yankovic fan, get ready to be happy. You may remember Funny Or Die posting a parody trailer back in 2013 for a Weird Al biopic that seemed like a funny idea, though perhaps not a very likely one. Welp, now it’s a reality, thanks to the ROKU Channel. In WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY, Daniel Radcliffe plays Al Yankovic aka Weird Al, along with Rainn Wilson as Dr. Demento, Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna, and Toby Huss and Julianne Nicholson playing the Yankovic parents. The teaser trailer gave us a taste of what to expect, but now thanks to a new trailer we have a better idea of just how outrageous this may actually be. Here were get our first looks at Will Forte as a record executive, and Quinta Brunson (ABBOTT ELEMENTARY) as Oprah Winfrey. Check out the new trailer and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY premiere on The Roku Channel on November 4, 2022
