“Weird Al” Yankovic cemented himself in pop culture after his comedic debut in the late ’70s. The multitalented comedian is known for his creative parodies of popular songs such as Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” and Coolio’s “Gangsta Paradise.” Yankovic has earned numerous awards and accolades over the course of his career, including five Grammy Awards for best comedy album and best concept music video. Several of the comedian’s albums are also certified platinum and gold. With such an esteemed legacy, it only makes sense that Yankovic is finally getting the biopic treatment.
“Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” starring Daniel Radcliffe, coming to The Roku Channel, is an “unexaggerated true story” that traces the comedian and musician’s career. It also stars Evan Rachel Wood as pop icon Madonna and “Abbott Elementary” star and creator Quinta Brunson as the incomparable Oprah Winfrey.
The film, which parodies traditional music biopics, starts streaming on Nov. 4. But if you want a preview of what to expect, scroll ahead to see what the rest of the cast look like next to their real-life counterparts.
