“The biopic holds nothing back, exploring every facet of Yankovic’s life, from his meteoric rise to fame with early hits like Eat It and Like a Surgeon to his torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle,” the official synopsis from Roku reads. “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story takes audiences on a truly unbelievable journey through Yankovic’s life and career, from gifted child prodigy to the greatest musical legend of all time.”
Weird: The Al Yankovic Story was directed and co-written by Eric Appel, with co-production from Funny or Die and Tango. Yankovic himself was involved as a writer and producer on the project. In addition to Radcliffe, the film stars Evan Rachel Wood and Rainn Wilson.
