Daniel has got shredded for the role
His latest challenge sees him become legendary American satirical musician Weird Al Yankovic, 62.
In the new trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, Daniel sports a moustache and and big curly hair as he sings, dances, and plays the accordion in front of a rapturous audience.
As he prowls the stage shirtless, Daniel reveals his ripped gym-honed physique.
When he’s not half-naked, Daniel wears colourful Hawaiian shirts and even gets into a scrap.
The minute long clip ends with the young Al teasing “I’m full of surprises” in an accomplished American accent.
The biopic, co-written by Weird Al himself, tells the story of the five-time Grammy winner whose parody songs include Eat It and White and Nerdy.
The trailer is sound-tracked by his track Like A Surgeon, a playful take on Madonna’s Like A Virgin.
According to a press release: “The biopic holds nothing back, exploring every facet of Yankovic’s life, from his meteoric rise to fame with early hits like Eat It and Like a Surgeon to his torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle.”
Daniel also commented that it’s a role he relished playing.
“Wearing the Hawaiian shirt is a huge responsibility that I don’t take lightly,” he told People. “And I’m honoured to finally share with the world the absolutely 100 percent unassailably true story of Weird Al’s depraved and scandalous life.”
