Did you say wig?!

Tomorrow (Nov 4) will see the release of Weird: The Al Yankovic Story starring Daniel Radcliffe and Evan Rachel Wood on Roku.

Weird tells the "true" story of Alfred Matthew Yankovic (a.k.a. the world famous musician known as "Weird Al" Yankovic). The film follows the beginnings of his interest in the accordion, his discovery by Dr. Demento, his support from Madonna, and his overall claim to fame. A satire of the biopic genre, the film intentionally exaggerates and downright fabricates moments in Yankovic's life for comical effect.

Daniel Radcliffe star as Weird Al, while Evan Rachel Wood plays Madonna. We sat down with Daniel and Evan to discuss all the important points like the transformational power of wigs and what must Madonna's bootcamps - the process which she used to select the actress to play her in an upcoming biopic - be like.

‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story’ will stream on The Roku Channel from 4 November
