Rupert Grint: News Roundup!

RupertNewsIconDecember 21st, 2014, 1:15am–First off, Rupert Grint will soon be leaving his Broadway stint in It’s Only A Play on January 4th, so if you haven’t gotten tickets you need to hurry! Rupert will be replaced by Community actor Maulik Pancholy. We know it’s big shoes to fill, but we’re sure, Mr. Pancholy will do great!

Secondly, if you have poked around our social media outlets, you may have noticed this little gem of a photo! This is a brand new still from Moonwalkers. There is still no date on when this film will be released, but we’ll let you know any and all news we come across.

Thirdly, for those in the UK or those who can play Region 2 DVDs, The Unbeatables will be out on February 9th, 2015! There is some talk of a blu-ray, but unfortunately there has been no links on amazon for it. If it does come out on this format, we’ll again let you know!

Lastly, but not least, Rupert will be honoring Julie Walters in a special that will air on the BBC on Christmas Eve! More info can be found here. We’ll have a video as soon as it’s available!

Rupert Grint Will Not Be In Extended It’s Only A Play Run!

It'sOnlyAPlayIcon2November 24th, 2014, 10:08pm–Early this month we had learned that ‘It’s Only A Play‘ was going to extend its run on Broadway through March 29th. Rumors swirled later that Rupert Grint would not be a part of the extended run, and we found out from his reps that unfortunately he may not continue due to other obligations. Tonight, Broadway.com has confirmed that along with his co-stars Nathan Lane and now also Megan Mullally, Rupert will end his run on January 4th. So you only have more than a month left to see Rupert as Frank Finger. We at Rupert-Grint.us can confirm, he’s absolutely brilliant in this part. If you get the chance, it’s a must see! You can still buy tickets through the official site. There is no word yet on who will be replacing Rupert at this.

Rupert Grint: It’s Only A Play Extended Until March 29th 2015!

It'sOnlyAPlayIcon2November 6th, 2014, 5:37pm– Tonight, it was announced that It’s Only a Play, with Rupert Grint playing director Frank Finger, will extend its run. Originally, the play was scheduled to close on January 4th 2015 but now the cast and crew have signed on for a short extension – the play will now close on March 29th 2015.

Martin Short will replace Nathan Lane after January 4th but the rest of the cast will continue to reprise their original roles. From January 7th (the first performance with Martin Short) and until January 18th the play will be housed at its current location, the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater, but from January 23 the play will transfer to its new home, the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater.

Although we’ll miss the amazing Nathan Lane, who is just perfect as James Wicker, we can’t wait to see how Rupert will interact with Martin Short – we can only imagine it’ll be absolutely hilarious.

UPDATE: There has been a lot of talk about whether or not Rupert will be a part of the extended run of It’s Only a Play. Rupert’s reps can’t confirm if he will continue in the play just yet, so we all need to cross our fingers that Rupert’s schedule will allow him to stay on until March 29.
But please note that nothing has been confirmed yet – we will of course update when we get official word on this.

Ha! I know, it’s pretty amazing working with all these geniuses. After Mojo ended, I didn’t want to do another play for a long time. It was fun but so exhausting. Then this came up and it was such an incredible cast, I had to do it.
