‘WEIRD: The Weird Al Yankovic Story’ Starring Daniel Radcliffe Gets November Premiere On Roku

Roku has announced the wonderfully bonkers looking ‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story!’, which stars Daniel Radcliffe as the Grammy-winning musician and pop-cultural icon, will premiere this November on the free streaming service.

The Roku Original film, produced by Funny Or Die, stars Radcliffe in the titular role of “Weird Al” Yankovic. The biopic holds 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 (according to the press release…) ‘WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story’ takes audiences on a truly unbelievable journey through Yankovic’s life and career, from gifted child prodigy to the greatest musical legend of all time.

‘WEIRD: The Weird Al Yankovic Story’ is written by Al Yankovic & Eric Appel. Eric Appel will also direct the film and is an executive producer. The film is produced by Funny Or Die and Tango. Al Yankovic produces, along with Mike Farah, Joe Farrell and Whitney Hodack for Funny Or Die, and Tim Headington, Lia Buman and Max Silva for Tango. Funny Or Die’s Henry Muñoz III and Tango’s Neil Shah are executive producers.
