“I have always wanted to play a punk,” says Grint, 24, who stars as rocker Cheetah Chrome in the historical drama CBGB (opening in limited markets Oct. 11). “It was really good fun.”

We also learn that some of the actors voices are mixed in with the original songs. The original soundtrack is due out on October 8th. It will be available on vinyl and CD according to this article. It’s up for pre-order here.

Rupert had this to say about playing on stage:

“It was a real buzz. We actually felt like we were in a band, which is something I have always wanted to do, secretly,” Grint says. “It was nice to have a little taste of that.”

The article has tons of information and quotes from director Randy Miller and his wife (also producer) Jody Savin. You can read all about here here.

UPDATE: We now have more details about the Tim Booth picture, and it is extremely interesting. On May 1st, Tim updated his blog with the following quote:

Spent the day shooting stills on the set of Instruments of Darkness, which was a chapter for the film Enemy of Man directed by Vincent Regan. This one is of Jason Flemyng letting rip in a fight sequence, all swords, clashing armour and fire, very dramatic. I also got some nice shots of Charles Dance and Rupert Grint. Good day, nice people and rather fun.

UPDATE #2: We asked Tim about photographing Rupert, and he was nice enough to share some very sweet words with us:

He was a nice guy, we didn’t exactly chat much as he was working very hard.
He’s a calm and quiet guy, very professional, totally unaffected by his fame
and dedicated to his craft.
