Daniel Radcliffe grabs an accordion and gets shirtless in a teaser for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, coming to The Roku Channel soon.

"Hope you guys are ready for this," Radcliffe as Al Yankovic says in the teaser, which you can watch below.

The feature length film, which was written by the real Yankovic and Eric Appel, does not yet have a premiere date set, but that isn't stopping the streamer from drumming up excitement for the comedic biopic.

Radcliffe, too, is already excited about the project, having previously told Metacritic that he hopes he captured "the spirit" of Yankovic with his portrayal.

"When people will see a movie, they'll see that it's a version of Al; it's not necessarily 100-percent accurate in terms of the events that take place. So yeah, it's a fully insane movie in all of the best ways. I have rarely been so excited to see something that I'm in as I am to see that because the script is brilliant," Radcliffe said.

Radcliffe confirmed that Yankovic, who also serves as producer on the project, was on set a lot, which was "a delight" for the actor.

"I can go to my grave now saying that I've had accordion lessons from Al Yankovic. Not everyone can say that," he said.

Other producers on Weird: The Al Yankovic Story are Funny or Die's Mike Farah, Joe Farrell, and Whitney Hodack, and Tango's Tim Headington, Lia Buman, and Max Silva. Appel, Henry Muñoz III, Neil Shah are executive producers.
