Rupert Grint: I’m Not Trying To Shock People Or Make A Big Statement!

cbgb icon3August 7th, 2013, 2:40pm–In a brand new interview with USA Today, Rupert Grint talks about CBGB, Mojo, and his current taste in roles. On CBGB he said:

“It’s not really that I am trying to shock people or make a big statement,” says Grint, “It’s just part of moving on.”

USA Today continued in confirming a scene where Rupert, as Cheetah Chrome, drops his pants to prove he’s a real ginger. And during a show one of the The Dead Boys band members engages in a sexual act on stage.

He also talks about his West End debut playing petty crook and drug addict Sweets and had this to say about it:

“This is a completely new thing, a whole new level,” says Grint. “It does scare me. That’s kind of a reason why I want to do it.”

Don’t forget that either today or tomorrow the CBGB trailer will debut on Entertainment Tonight. The show is syndicated so check your local listings as what time it comes on. We will have the trailer up as soon as possible.

This is what I love about Rupert. He’s not in it for the fame. He’s in it for the acting. He loves to act and that’s all that matters to him. It doesn’t matter if the role has 1 line or 1,000 lines. It’s that the role was fun, challenging, and spoke to him in some way. Good for him! Too many people only care about being famous. And some start out for the love of it and then turn to just caring about fame and fortune.

It’s so true Tao! I absolutely agree! Rupert chooses the roles which are challenging for him. He tries to accomplish his acting skills. And I hope one day he will be rewarded by more recognition and success :)))

Agreed. I love how Rupert marches to the beat of his own drum and that he doesn’t feel the need to follow the path of others. I think it is much more important for Rupert to enjoy what he is doing and to really work on his acting skills rather than find the big money or find ways to be more famous. Rupert’s roles post-HP have been quite different and have really appealed to him- it’s good that he is not being typecasted. I’m really looking forward to CBGB, NDCC and the reviews of Mojo, considering I can’t get to London!
