Daniel Radcliffe is “full of surprises” as he makes his first appearance in a new teaser trailer for an upcoming biopic about the life of US comedian Weird Al Yankovic.

The Harry Potter star gave a hilarious performance to the cheering crowd, swinging an accordion in the 60-second clip, wearing a curly wig, glasses and mustache.

The film follows the life and career of the musical parody sensation who rose to fame with comical parody versions of classic songs.

The trailer also features Radcliffe in a medical gown playing Like A Surgeon, Yankovic’s hit song based on Madonna’s Like A Virgin.

In other scenes, he dresses in a collection of brightly colored Hawaiian shirts, as well as shirtless performances on stage where the actor displays an impressive physique.

“What can I say, I’m full of surprises,” says Radcliffe.

WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story is produced by Funny Or Die and will be aired on the Roku streaming service.

Yankovic is the best-selling comedy artist of all time and has won five Grammy Awards.

The comedian shared the teaser, writing, “Get psyched.”

Referring to the film on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Radcliffe said it was “one of the funniest things I’ve ever done.”

“I’m rarely excited to see things I’m in. I’m very excited to see that,” he said.

“It’s a completely insane movie, it’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever done.”

He revealed that Yankovic gave him accordion lessons and loaned him his personal instrument to prepare for the role and that he would “go to my grave” with the experience.

Yankovic previously shared the first look at Daniel Radcliffe in costume, joking that a cosplayer tried to “crash our set” and was later kicked out by security.

“SHOOTING DAY #8: It never fails – we’re trying to make a movie here and this crazy cosplayer is trying to crash our set,” he captioned the photo.

“Ugh! I mean, I love my fans, but… limits, folks!

Yankovic’s 2014 release Mandatory Fun was the first comedy album in history to debut at number one on the Billboard Top 200.

His early hits included Eat It, a parody of Michael Jackson’s Beat It, and Amish Paradise, based on Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise.

His music videos have featured famous faces like Jack Black, Seth Green and Donny Osmond.

Yankovic previously said he was “thrilled” to be portrayed by Radcliffe, and joked that the film “will be the role that future generations will remember him for.”

Production on WEIRD began in Los Angeles in early February and the film is slated for release later this year.
