Watch Daniel Radcliffe In First Teaser Trailer For Weird Al Yankovic Biopic

The biopic genre is about to get real weird with the upcoming film, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.

The movie was filmed last year in Los Angeles. News broke when people noticed Daniel Radcliffe walking around town sporting a frizzy-haired wig and a pretty epic mustache. The ‘Harry Potter‘ actor stars in this movie as “Weird Al” Yankovic.

Roku released the first teaser trailer for the film this week, and yes, it features an accordion.

The movie is billed as a ‘untold true story’ of Yankovic, documenting ‘Weird Al’s’ rise to fame with early hits like ‘Eat It’ and ‘Like a Surgeon’ — as well as his ‘torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle.’ It’s really more of a scripted mockumentary, spoofing tropes that run rampant in self-important biopics.

Of course a Weird Al biopic would be a parody of the genre itself. Would he really have it any other way?

In addition to Radcliffe, this flick stars Evan Rachel Wood, Rainn Wilson, Julianne Nicholson and Toby Huss.

It’ll stream on the Roku Channel this fall, but no specific release date has been set as of yet. We’ll keep you posted.

Check out the trailer below…
