You’ve never seen Daniel Radcliffe like this In the trailer for «Weird» the «Harry Potter» star becomes a cult comedian

Since the 80s, musician and comedian «Weird» Al Yankovic has been delighting the masses with his congenial song parodies — from Michael Jackson to Madonna and Nirvana to Lady Gaga (his «Like A Virgin» satire is «Like A Surgeon». also heard in the trailer above). It was probably only a matter of time before the five-time Grammy award winner, who has had guest appearances in Hollywood films over the years and eventually even rose to become the comedy artist with the best-selling albums of all, one day .

» Weird: The Al Yankovic Story » sheds light on many facets of Yankovic’s life and career, but is not to be taken completely seriously, but — typically Weird Al — comes along more as a parody of classic biopics. Finally, Al Yankovic himself — along with comedy-savvy director Eric Appel («Son Of Zorn,» «Brooklyn Nine-Nine») — contributed to the screenplay.

The first trailer already hints at the tongue-in-cheek direction of the film and this is perhaps also made clear by the not-so-obvious choice of the main actor. «Harry Potter» star Daniel Radcliffe not only presents himself with a completely unusual look, but after crazy genre roles in films such as » Swiss Army Man » (as a farting corpse) or » Guns Akimbo » (as a nerd with pistols nailed to his hands) prove once again that he shouldn’t be tied to the role of the famous magician’s student for a long time.

«Weird» is not coming to the cinemas

«Weird: The Al Yankovic Story» was only announced at the beginning of 2022, but will be released in autumn of this year — not in cinemas, but as an exclusive streaming title on the Roku Channel, which is not yet available in Germany.

Whether that will change by the time the film is released remains to be seen. If not, another provider could possibly secure the rights to “Weird” in this country.
