WATCH: Teaser drops for WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story with Daniel Radcliffe playing Weird Al…

May 3rd, 2022 by Marc Comments

I’m amazed that Weird Al Yankovic, the guy I’ll always love for his Star Wars-themed songs such as My, My Little Anakin Guy is getting his own biopic.

I also cannot believe that Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe is playing him.

Yankovic is a parody singer who favours an accordion in his music as his weapon of choice; he’s also surprisingly talented at what he does.

Having his first hit in 1976, if you think about it, it’s long past time that he had a bio-pic made about him.

On the movie’s release, Yankovic said: “when my last movie UHF came out in 1989, I made a solemn vow to my fans that I would release a major motion picture every 33 years, like clockwork. I’m very happy to say we’re on schedule.

“I am absolutely thrilled that Daniel Radcliffe will be portraying me in the film. I have no doubt whatsoever that this is the role future generations will remember him for.”

The movie is coming this Fall on the Roku Channel. You have been warned,

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
