Evan Rachel Wood is set to play Madonna in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.
Daniel Radcliffe stars as the parody song legend in his upcoming biopic, and now the 34-year-old Westworld actress has boarded the cast as The Queen of Pop and wowed with her transformation into the 63-year-old music icon.
Wood shared a snap of her in the lace wedding dress-style ensemble, complete with stacked jewellery and the cross earrings, which Madonna wore in her music video for 1984 hit ‘Like a Virgin’, a song which Yankovic famously parodied and turned into ‘Like a Surgeon’.
Alongside the snap, Wood wrote: “The secret’s out! I am having WAY TOO MUCH FUN playing the iconic Madonna in @therokuchannel’s WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story with Daniel Radcliffe.”
Yankovic also took to social media to reveal the other actors in the biopic. He wrote: “It’s shoot day #14, my friends, and now it can be told… Daniel Radcliffe’s co-stars in WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story will be Evan Rachel Wood, Rainn Wilson, Toby Huss, and Julianne Nicholson!”
Last month, after Yankovic shared the first look of Radcliffe as the singer, the Harry Potter star told People: “Wearing the Hawaiian shirt is a huge responsibility that I don’t take lightly, and I’m honored to finally share with the world the absolutely 100 percent unassailably true story of Weird Al’s depraved and scandalous life.”— BANG SHOWBIZ
