Daniel Radcliffe has promised that ‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story’, which tells the life story of the American comedian-and-singer, who is famous for his pop parodies, is “going to be a lot of fun.”
The ‘Harry Potter’ star is playing the comedian-and-musician, who is famous for his parody songs such as ‘Eat It’, ‘Amish Paradise’ and ‘Smells Like Nirvana’, in the upcoming movie ‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story’.
Yankovic’s classic look through the 80s featured a pair of glasses, a mustache and curly hair, and Daniel committed to growing a tache but the curly hair he has been seen with during shooting is a wig.
He said: “I grew the mustache, so the mustache was mine ‘cause I didn’t want to wear a fake one every day.”
He added that the wig is fine to work with because “pretty quick” to take on and off each day.
Daniel Radcliffe has plans to keep growing the mustache and doesn’t intend to shave it off after the shooting has wrapped.
Speaking to “Entertainment Tonight, he said: “I’m going to keep that going for as long as I can ‘cause it’s insane. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
The 32-year-old actor also says his 34-year-old co-star Evan Rachel Wood – who plays pop icon, Madonna, in the Roku Original – had “much more of an involved process” with the hair and makeup team, who he labeled “amazing”.
Daniel said: “We had an amazing hair and makeup team truly. I don’t know how they did what they did in 18 days. It was all down to them.”
He also emphasized that the film is “absolutely 100 percent the true story of Al’s life”.
The movie was written by the 62-year-old funnyman himself and ‘Funny or Die’ star Eric Appel.
