Sandra Bullock has starred in numerous movies over the years, not to mention that she has worked with uncountable Hollywood A-listers. One of them is the British actor Daniel Radcliffe, who has been in show business since the age of 11 when he was cast in the film adaptation of J. K. Rowling’s best-selling book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Sandra Bullock worked with Daniel Radcliffe in the 2022 action-adventure film The Lost City. The movie follows the story of a romance novelist and her cover model as they try to escape the billionaire who wants the novelist to find a long-lost treasure. In early 2022, it was announced that Radcliffe would be playing the role of musician Alfred Yankovic in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, which had been teased for about 12 years.

During a joint interview with HeyUGuys on YouTube, Sandra Bullock was asked how she felt about Radcliffe playing the role of Alfred ‘Al’ Yankovic to which she reacted quite enthusiastically, saying that it is “incredible” and that the society has advanced enough to see the Now You See Me 2 actor win an Oscar for his performance in the biopic.

The Murder by Numbers actress went on to say:

“Well, I think we’re now involved enough to handle it. I think Daniel playing ‘Weird’ Al is inspired. You go wait, what, and then you go, ‘Oh my god, this is going to be amazing.’ It’s inspired, and when it hits it’s going to be all anyone’s talking about. It’s exciting.”

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story‘s screenplay was written by director Eric Appel and the Eat It musician himself. In 2010, a fake trailer for a movie with the eponymous name was released as a parody of the biographical films of other musicians. Yankovic began considering really doing it in 2019, following which the movie was announced in 2022 with Daniel Radcliffe in the lead role.

Radcliffe said that it was very exciting to watch things unfold when a person from the special effects department gets this “insane” look on their face.
