The upper part of Rupert looks very much like Cheetah but obviously the filmmakers didn’t dare to put him into those tight-fit jeans of the late 70s 😉 (

Rupert looks so COOL!!! as Cheetah. And I really liked the interview. Wow, JKR and Kloves gushing over Rupert as an actor. He’s a genius. Well, didn’t we know already? And good that Kloves finally realized what a strong character Ron is. Too bad he didn’t earlier … *sigh*
