UHF ( aka The Vidiot from UHF )

Despite this being his only starring role, Yankovic plays it to the hilt in this quirky cult film from the 80's. Yankovic stars as George Newman, a hopeless dreamer who is given a chance when his Uncle Harvey makes him station manager of the UHF Channel 62. With his pop culture day-dreams he'd be a shoo-in, right?
