E-mail your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org (subject: “CBGB Poster Contest“). The contest will end one week from now (december 4th). We will randomly pick a winner from all the correct answers.
Don’t forget that Charlie Countryman hits US theaters tomorrow and for those of you who won’t be able to see it in a theater Directv along with many other cable and satellite provides are offering it on Video On Demand. Check your provider’s website to see if you’re lucky enough to do so. However if you want to see it on the big screen, the official site has a list of theaters that will have the movie out this weekend. We will provide with the latest theater listings whenever available.

UPDATE: In a new article Rupert talks doing stage with quotes from Rupert’s co-stars about his stage debut. Read it here!
Rupert talked about what it’s like to be on stage, calling it “thrilling” – but he also said that he had never thought stage work was something he would do since he’s a nervous person in general (we would just like to add that we’re SO happy Rupert decided to do this!!).
We also find out how he deals with being recognized everywhere as well as what it was like playing Cheetah Chrome in CBGB.
We are working on getting this lovely interview online for all of you to see. You can now watch the interview below:
You can see some screencaps from the show in our gallery here.
Are you enjoying the theater work? Are you more of a theater guy or a film guy?
Grint: I don’t know, really. This is my first theater experience, and it’s very different. I wanted to just try it; it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Just the thought of it scares me. I’ve kind of put it off for a long time, and I just thought it was a good time to do it. And it’s a great play and a really great cast with a great director, and it was just, yeah, I’m enjoying it.
Now for something more fun. It’s October. What’s your favorite Halloween costume you’ve ever worn?
Grint: I liked Halloween. It never used to be a big thing when I was kid. We never really did it. But I actually had a good costume not that long ago. The last one, I dressed as a Play-Doh can that I made. You know Play-Doh?
Grint: Well, literally, I actually made it. It was a yellow bin. I cut the bottom out and I just wore a yellow bin with a Play-Doh logo. With a yellow hat. It’s not very practical.
