When depicting an iconic entertainer whose musical work contains a song called “White and Nerdy”, it would be derogatory to say that being white and nervous is actually a big first step. So it is with Daniel Radcliffe and his upcoming series as Weird Al for the upcoming Roku Channel comic book Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. As logic and fate would say, the Harry Potter The star revealed that it was indeed a public demonstration of his own geeky interests that led him directly to acquire a role as the King of Pop Parodies.
Some might argue that Daniel Radcliffe spends much of his existence so intertwined with Harry Potter The franchise may have been all the CV needed to get at least one foot in the door for a Weird Al audition. But it was actually an improvised serenade which the actor closed in one episode The Graham Norton show who sealed the deal, as Radcliffe explained to Jimmy Fallon during his most recent visit The Tonight Show.
For those unfamiliar with Tom Lehrer and there is a possible age where this familiarity falls off the cliff, he was a satirical musician in the 1950s and 1960s, whose relatively limited production retained his popularity and cult. thanks to more popular tracks such as “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park” and “The Elements”. The latter is arranged in Gilbert and Sullivan’s song “Major-General’s Song” from the musical The Pirates of Penzance, and displays all the item names. Anyone who has ever enjoyed the knowledge-based and dark comedy songs from Animaniacs can thank Lehrer for laying some of these foundations.
So it may not be at all shocking that the most popular musical parody of all time has identified Daniel Radcliffe’s “The Elements” as the inspiration for Miracle workers The cast of the protagonist in the biographical film, which is proud of Eric Appel as director and co-writer. (Of course, Jankovic also wrote the photo and it was during relatively short production.) And while all we have at the moment to continue is a first image of Radcliffe in Weird Al state, I dare say that everyone involved made all the right choices here. The same goes for Evan Rachel Wood’s guest spot as Madonnawhich looks just as great.
Now, for anyone who thinks that Daniel Radcliffe is only into 60-year-old magazine comedies, let’s not forget that the actor is a admitted a Netflix super fan Love is blind. Now what kind of role will this fandom land him in 13 or 14 years from now? As you think about this, take a look at the interpretation that gave him the role of an Al-time.
Currently, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story It does not yet have a release date locked on The Roku Channel, but fans can check it out his return as Ted Nugent in his last season Reno 911!which also has a masterpiece episode with guest star Jamie Lee Curtis.
