WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY star Daniel Radcliffe covers the latest issue of GQ Hype magazine photographed by Cian Moore and styled by Brandon Tan.
Radcliffe did not grow up a Weird Al devotee, but he was inducted into the fandom through his long-time girlfriend, the actress Erin Darke. “The early part of our relationship was me being educated in Al by her and her whole family,” he says. After reading the script, it didn’t take much convincing to sign on. “When I want to do something, I’m not good at hiding it. My immediate reaction was, ‘I would be very honored to play you in this movie.’ But also: Why me?”
“I had this awareness that people expected we would do nothing after Potter — that we would fade away,” Radcliffe says. “I really wanted that not to be the case, because I knew that I loved it, and I wanted to do whatever I have to do to have a career with longevity.”
