In the upcoming biopic “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story,” Radcliffe portrays “Weird Al” Yankovic alongside Evan Rachel Wood.
Daniel Radcliffe is playing “Weird Al” Yankovic in the upcoming biopic “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story,” and while many people will be watching, he is most worried about how his girlfriend’s parents, who are huge “Weird Al” Yankovic fans, would respond.
After the movie’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Radcliffe and co-star Evan Rachel Wood, who plays Madonna in the movie, participated in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Since Erin Darke, Radcliffe’s girlfriend, is a fan, she was questioned about her opinion of his portrayal of Yankovic throughout the interview.
Radcliffe said, “I’m probably most worried about how my in-laws would react to [director] Eric [Appel] and Al [Yankovic].
“because they are also huge admirers, Erin’s father and brother. Erin has watched the film, but I’m curious to hear Ian’s opinion. The “Harry Potter” actor said, “I genuinely hope he loves it “, the star went on.
Yankovic personally chose Radcliffe to portray the role in the biopic. On “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Radcliffe discussed the incident from 2010 that helped him earn the starring part several years later.
I’m incredibly flattered by the thought that you would choose me to play you, but why me? I remarked when I first spoke with Al, and he recalled.
I performed “The Elements” next to Colin Farrell and Rihanna, who were perplexed and may have said. “Who is this kid, and why is he singing all of the elements?” Radcliffe kept talking. “And I suppose Al saw that and thought, ‘This guy might get it,’” so he chose me.
The biopic about “Weird Al” Yankovic’s life will premiere on November 4 on The Roku Channel.
