Daniel Radcliffe to play ‘Weird Al’ in A Biopic

He's the biggest-selling comedy recording artist of all time

Daniel Radcliffe will be stepping into some very funny shoes when he takes on playing “Weird Al” Yankovic in a new biopic for the Roku Channel.

The movie, “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” will explore “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.”

The movie starts filming next month with no release date set. Weird Al co-wrote the script with director Eric Appel.
