“Weird Al” Madness – Photos and Details of Daniel Radcliffe Emerge for Upcoming Biopic

It might not be the weirdest thing you’ll see all day, but it should put a smile on your face. Photos of Daniel Radcliffe decked out as “Weird Al” Yankovic are circulating around the Internet thanks to E! News, and Harry Potter fans are having quite the reaction.

We love seeing Radcliffe in the long, curly wig, mustache, and signature “Weird Al” fashion, but we’re also reminded that even wizards need their coffee in the morning. He seems to be enjoying his time on set.

Wearing the Hawaiian shirt is a huge responsibility that I don’t take lightly. And I’m honored to finally share with the world the absolutely 100 percent unassailably true story of Weird Al’s depraved and scandalous life.

Filming for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, which will premiere exclusively on Roku, began earlier this month. Yankovic is a huge supporter of Radcliffe taking on this role in the biopic, which will explore the singer’s life and career.

Head of scripted originals at Roku Colin Davis is proud to work on this film.

This is sincerely the ultimate combination of talent, creativity, and friends coming together to make something genuinely funny, and we could not be prouder to call this film a Roku Original.

This biopic is bound to be as extra as “Weird Al” himself. What do you think of Radcliffe’s transformation?
