Weird: The Al Yankovic Story Trailer Is A Perfect Parody Of Music Biopics

Al Yankovic is making it big in the new trailer for the spoof artist’s spoof biopic. Weird: The Al Yankovic Story will star Daniel Radcliffe as Weird Al himself and will tell the not-so-true story of Al’s famous life. The film will premiere on The Roku Channel streaming service on November 4.

weirdThe trailer walks through some of the typical touchstones you might expect in a musician biopic and puts them through an appropriately silly Weird Al filter. There are scenes from Al’s childhood where his parents worry about his polka obsession, a sequence where he shocks his friends with an impromptu rendition of “My Bologna” and his descent into strife and ruin thanks to …Madonna (Evan Rachel Wood). There’s even the presence of a shady senior promoter (Dr. Demento, played by Rainn Wilson) who wants to use Al to help him succeed. It’s all played out to the ridiculous degree you’d expect from a movie about a man who made his name writing parody songs.

The film also stars Quinta Brunson (Abbott Elementary) as Oprah Winfrey, Thomas Lennon (Reindeer 911!), Toby Huss (Stop and set fire), Julianna Nicholson (me, tony) and Spencer Treat Clark (protection agents). weird is directed by Eric Appel (Silicon Valley) and written by Appel and Al Yankovic himself.
