It's a biopic.  With Daniel Radcliffe.  On Hulu.

Don't get me wrong.  I'll watch it, but I don't see this as another UHF.  And he's vegetarian now (or vegan?) so no more Twinkie wiener sammich.

I assumed you were joking until I clicked the link. It reads like the set up to a punchline.

It'll be on Roku.  Al says that this is the role Radcliffe will be remembered for by future generations.  It's always good to start the day with a huge laugh.

"I am absolutely thrilled that Daniel Radcliffe will be portraying me in the film. I have no doubt whatsoever that this is the role future generations will remember him for."

Fantastic quote.

Weasel stomping still A-OK, though - as long as you don't eat them afterward.

UHF was free on YouTube for a while. I watched half, then put off watching the rest, then it was pulled :(
 
2022-01-18 11:33:40 AM  
UHF is one of the funniest movies ever made, and still holds up.  At least, according to my kids, who hate everything.  Weird Al's shtick is a good one and I think he can do it again.

Don't we already have the trailer for this from 2013?

Al is truly a national treasure

I love that radcliffe is 7" shorter than weird al as well, and I'd bet they lean into that also.

That's actually what this movie is. That, but as an actual full-length movie.
 
2022-01-18 12:14:26 PM  
Oh, and although you probably don't need a Roku device just to stream the Roku Channel, I've gone ahead and ordered a Roku flatscreen monitor, 40 inches wide.

I'm just going to head next door and borrow Frank's 2000" TV.

Whoever it is, it should be Paul Giamatti

I demand at least a cameo by the man himself.

I'd say Seth Rogen except they have 2 completely different voices

I thought that was George RR Martin for more than a few seconds.

Nah- the clip was actually finished at some point.

While a funny bit, I don't think Spatula City can support a feature-length film.

Not a 2,000 inch tv?

He's vegan.  I catered his studio when he recorded the big Grammy album.  Very nice guy.  I never knew he was tall.

Al had gone vegetarian by then.  The movie Twinkie weiner wasn't meat.
