    "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,"

    LOL! I can't wait!

    The second half, where he blossoms after breaking away from his abusive partner, promises to swell a lot of hearts.

    Wonder why they just didn't have Al do it himself like Stern in Private Parts. It'll be a goofy comedy, so doesn't really matter if he looks too old in the younger years.

    Please let it be one of the female Ghostbusters please let it be one of the female Ghostbusters please let it be one of the female Ghostbusters...
    (Crispin Glover or Paul Reubens would also suffice...)

    I can only hope this means that "The Allan Sherman Story" is also on the way...

    Interesting choice.

    Isn't Daniel like 5'4" tall.

    He's going to need a lot of intensive accordion tutoring sessions.

    Daniel has made to risky choices for his post-HP career.....
    and, I think that's AWESOME!
    My only knit-pick is..
    I thought Weird Al was tall....and Daniel is...well...not.

    Is this serious? Why do we need a Weird Al biopic? What's next? Induction into the RRHOF? I mean he's influenced so many...

    Well, that's like asking, "Why do we need air?"!

    If there were no Weird Al, there'd probably be no Jonathan Colton.

    And Jonathan Colton has his own music cruise. One that takes over an entire boat, which puts him in the same category as people like Joe Bonamassa.

    Because he's a funny wholesome goof, and a film about him is likely to be really entertaining. He's remained relevant for decades, and is a cultural icon.

    Also, sadly the film has the potential of a powerful third act, when he learns about the death of both of his parents just before a show.

    He earned my eternal respect as a performer, when he went out there and performed that night.

    People who've never been in the entertainment business don't understand just how deep the idea that "The Show Must Go On" is embedded.

    He knew that there was a theater of people out there, who had traveled, some of whom had rented hotel rooms, paid for babysitters, and he couldn't send them all home just to assuage his own pain.

    My wife and I agree that Daniel Radcliffe must have renegotiated his contract before the last two or three Harry Potter films, and that he got a percentage of gross, and has absolutely no concerns about making money for the rest of his life. So he can do a film where he just plays a corpse for it's entire length.

    I've never heard the name Jonathon Colton in my life.

    If we are going to make movies about every 2nd rate entertainer like Weird Al, we might as well start making individual biopics for every centerfold who ever appeared in Playboy magazine.

    Maybe he's relevant to someone, somewhere. I didn't know he was still doing, well, whatever it is that he's famous for
