After Roku announced in January that they would be creating an original film based on the life of "Weird Al" Yankovic, with Daniel Radcliffe signed on to star, the streaming service has now released a teaser trailer giving fans a closer look at Radcliffe as the iconic satirical musician.
Yes, that’s the former Harry Potter himself donning Yankovic’s famous look, complete with curls, glasses, mustache, Hawaiian shirt, and accordian.
The film, called WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story, will be directed by Eric Appel, who has worked on The Office, New Girl, Silicon Valley, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, among many others. This marks Appel's first feature film project. He and Yankovic, who also serves as a producer, co-wrote the script.
According to Roku’s initial press release, WEIRD will cover "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."
WEIRD will stream exclusively on the Roku Channel – no release date has been announced yet.
