“Weird Al” has released ‘Now You Know’ a hilariously matter-of-fact summation of the film that runs over its end credits, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.
The Roku Original film is full of surprises. Starring Daniel Radcliffe as “Weird Al”, Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna, as well as Rainn Wilson as Dr. Demento, and Quinta Brunson as Oprah Winfrey. The film was directed by Eric Appel who also co-wrote the script with Yankovic and co-produced by Funny or Die and Tango.
Yankovic himself appears briefly in the biopic as a record company executive, as does Will Forte, who suffers the indignity of Radcliffe putting out a lit cigarette on his hand.
“Now You Know” can be found on the original soundtrack for the film on all streaming platforms. It also includes five contemporary re-records of Yankovic classics “My Bologna,” “I Love Rocky Road,” “Another One Rides the Bus,” “Like a Surgeon,” and “Amish Paradise,” plus score by Leo Birenberg and Zach Robinson (Cobra Kai).
