The one who was one of the most recognized actors in the early 2000s thanks to ‘Harry Potter’ has been chaining much more extravagant and crazy roles than that of the wizard boy. Always away from social media Daniel Radcliffe long ago left the wand and the invisibility cloak to enter independent cinema where he has danced half-naked in ‘Miracle Workers’, has gone out in a robe and with guns in ‘Guns Akimbo’ and has farted while sailing the seas in ‘Swiss Army Man’.
Now, With ‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story’, Radcliffe goes to the field of musical biopicwhose path has been paved in the mainstream with films like ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Rocketman’ or the future ‘Elvis’, but in which its director Eric Appel (‘Silicon Valley’) promises to give it a twist by adding Yankovic’s characteristic and extravagant comic touch.
With the new teaser trailer, we can see a completely unleashed Daniel Radcliffe, in an effort to blend in with the singer and comedian known for parodying great themes of contemporary music (such as Michael Jackson with “Eat It” or Madonna with “Like A Surgeon”). You can see the trailer under these lines.
‘Weird: The Yankovic Story’ chronicles Yankovic’s life from his meteoric rise to stardom to his notorious risque romances and provocative lifestyle. Yankovic himself signs the script with Appel so, despite the fact that the teaser says “The true story never told”we can expect a mockumentary hooligan or even a parody within the parody.
Fit for Wolverine?
The reactions to the trailer, as expected, have gone directly to the leading actor and, especially, towards the portentous physique that the former Hogwarts student spends. Photos and videos on social media point to a sequence in the trailer in which she is on stage and shirtless.
People saying Daniel Radcliffe is too ripped to play Weird Al are incorrect. He did not get ripped enough! pic.twitter.com/9lHmBV6SmN

There’s no reason for Daniel Radcliffe to be this ripped for the Weird Al biopic, so I must assume he’s been cast as Wolverine for the MCU pic.twitter.com/D5I0JUibuk

Following the latest rumors about him becoming the new Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans have already made the relevant connections claiming that if he is this muscular it can only be to pick up the baton from Hugh Jackmandespite the fact that Radcliffe himself does not seem very convinced of it.
Without knowing when or how it will arrive in Spain since this platform is only available in the United States, ‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story’ will premiere on Roku Channel this fall.
