It’s official: Daniel Radcliffe has gotten actually bizarre.
There it’s, the very first picture of Daniel Radcliffe as “Bizarre Al” Yankovic. The previous Harry Potter star will headline Bizarre: The “Bizarre Al” Yankovic Story, a comedic biopic of the beloved icon of parody songs. Right here was Radcliffe’s extraordinarily critical touch upon enjoying Yankovic within the movie:
Sporting the Hawaiian shirt is a large accountability that I do not take frivolously, and I am honored to lastly share with the world the completely one hundred pc unassailably true story of Bizarre Al’s wicked and scandalous life.
Right here’s the full-body shot of Radcliffe in motion, rocking out on the accordion, as Bizarre Al:
Who knew “Bizarre Al” had such buff arms?
The mission originated at Humorous or Die, the place a couple of years in the past Eric Appel made a brief movie with the identical title as a parody of musical biopics. That model starred Aaron Paul as Yankovic. The brand new movie will presumably preserve the identical premise, however increase it to function size. (Appel is directing the Bizarre function as nicely.)
Right here is the movie’s official synopsis:
The Roku Authentic movie will star Daniel Radcliffe within the titular function of “Bizarre Al” Yankovic. The biopic holds nothing again, exploring each aspect of Yankovic’s life, from his meteoric rise to fame with early hits like “Eat It” and “Like a Surgeon” to his torrid movie star amorous affairs and famously wicked way of life. WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story takes audiences on a very unbelievable journey by Yankovic’s life and profession, from gifted baby prodigy to the best musical legend of all time.
Bizarre: The Bizarre The ‘Bizarre Al’ Yankovic Story doesn’t but have a premiere date, however it’ll debut on The Roku Channel. I can’t wait to listen to Daniel Radcliffe belt out “Eat It.”
