Daniel Radcliffe stated in “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” that he is very jacked for a simple reason: he works out. This is just his nature.
Radcliffe portrays Weird Al Yankovic in the film partially based on the singer’s life. In reality, “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” is just as much of a satire as Yankovic’s songs, lampooning conventional clichés and the format of the musician biopic. Radcliffe is immensely muscular in the picture, but he told GQ that this was not a conscious choice by the creators.
“It wasn’t so much a decision as they found it amusing that I looked that way,” Radcliffe told the tabloid, adding that he hadn’t gotten in shape expressly for the film because he’s into fitness.
Radcliffe appears shirtless or partially shirtless at various scenes in the film, and his muscles are apparent in the November 4 Roku Channel teaser for the film “Weird.” As previously noted by Men’s Health, the fact that Radcliffe appears unusually ripped to play Weird Al Yankovic has already sparked numerous fan reactions.
In addition to building strength for the picture, Radcliffe grew his own mustache.
“If you can avoid false facial hair, you should,” Radcliffe advised fans during the film’s discussion at the October New York Comic Con. There is some advice for you.
Radcliffe wore a wig to imitate Yankovic’s enormous, curly hair. This was the most important aspect of his appearance. Evan Rachel Wood, who portrays Madonna in the film, stated at New York Comic Con that she became “so accustomed” to seeing Radcliffe with the wig and mustache, adding that it was a bizarre experience to see herself and Radcliffe back in the film in costume as Madonna and Yankovic.
