Weird: The Al Yankovic Story Cast
The great Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, plays the titular role in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, trading in his robes and wand for some flashy outfits and a mustache. Actors portraying various musical and pop cultural icons will join Julianne Nicholson (Mare of Easttown) and Toby Huss (King of the Hill) as Al’s mom and dad. As examples, Rainn Wilson (The Office) plays Dr. Demento, Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) transforms into Madonna, Quinta Brunson is Oprah Winfrey, and James Preston Rogers becomes Hulk Hogan. Spencer Treat Clark will portray Steve Jay, “Weird Al” Yankovic’s longtime bassist (Agents of SHIELD).
Weird: The Al Yankovic Story Plot Details
As one might expect from a project including “Weird Al” Yankovic, the idea of Weird: The Al Yankovic Story is far from obvious, although it does claim to follow its satirical subject from early childhood (thus the parents) through his early career (why the Madonna). Weird: The Al Yankovic Story will not be a conventional biopic, opting instead to merge elements of Al’s genuine life with pure comedy for the sake of entertaining. References to “celebrity love relationships” and a “famously filthy lifestyle” in the film’s official press release confirm that Weird: The Al Yankovic Story will not let the truth get in the way of a good time for its viewers.
Will Weird: The Al Yankovic Story Be Released In Theaters?
Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, which debuted as a Roku Channel exclusive, has attracted enough attention to raise worries about a potential theatrical distribution. No announcements regarding a theatrical release of Weird: The Al Yankovic Story have been made as of this writing. Until a limited theatrical release is announced closer to November 4, you can only see the “Weird Al” biography on Roku.
