Evan Rachel Wood To Play Madonna In ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Biopic
Actress Evan Rachel Wood has been cast as Madonna in the forthcoming Weird Al Yankovic biopic.
The 34-year-old actress will star alongside Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the lead role in the project.
Wood will play the role of Madonna, whose 1984 hit Like A Virgin became a hit parody for Yankovic in the form of Like A Surgeon which the pop star herself praised upon its release.
The Office star Rainn Wilson has also reportedly been cast as Dr. Demento in the Roku production, according to Rolling Stone.
Check out the promotional material for the biopic below.
