The “Harry Potter” star is full of surprises in the teaser for “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story”.
5 platinum selling records. 4 Grammys. A biopic that fans have been waiting for for 40 years. It’s time for the untold story of “Weird Al” Yankovic to be told, and none other than Daniel Radcliffe is the man who accepted the challenge.
“Weird Al” Yankovic is the American singer and actor who broke through in the late 70’s. He became famous with parodies of famous songs – in the trailer we can hear “Like a Surgeon”, suspiciously like Madonna’s “Like a Virgin”. Appropriate to his style, it also seems that the film, which Yankovic co-wrote with director Eric Appel, chooses the comedy track.
- I look forward to you seeing this crazy, wonderful film that we have made. It was one of the most fun things I have ever done in my life. I hope you like it – the best you do, because I learned to play the accordion, and that instrument is a nightmare, Radcliffe told the Hollywood Reporter.
The film will cover both “his comet career, his hot love affairs and his infamous depraved lifestyle”, according to the official description. The cast also includes Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna and Julianne Nicholson as Al’s mother Mary.
