Rupert Grint Talks Eddie The Eagle and Wild Target In New Interview!


Rupert Grint Talks Eddie The Eagle and Wild Target In New Interview!
June 8th, 2010, 12:30pm–In a new interview with WalesOnline Rupert Grint talks about his new comedy film Wild Target and shares with us his gun training and what it was like for him firing at the shooting range,  how much he looks up to his Wild Target co-star Bill Nighy and even desires to work on stage! Once again we get a big mention about Eddie The Eagle and Rupert’s excitement in playing the British skier! Read excerpt:

“I’m quite looking forward to that. He’s a big character and quite funny. It’s still early stages though, it’s not completely final yet,” he says.

“The whole story is inspiring because he’s the classic underdog and he actually did amazing things. He set the British record at the time. He’s just got so much guts.”

Grint, who never thought of acting as a career before Harry Potter changed his life, is open to offers.

“I’d do literally anything. Anything that’s quite different with big characters would be good. Someone dark and insane would be quite cool,” he adds.

He could see himself treading the theatre boards like Harry Potter co-star Daniel, but has some hesitations.

“I’d like to do some stage in the future, definitely, because it seems like you get a lot of satisfaction – probably not naked or singing though,” he says.

“It just seems like a massive step and it’s a different craft because you only get one chance.

“At the moment, I’m just looking at other stuff. I’ll probably take some time off, catch up with friends and have some freedom. Then see what happens and take it as it comes.”
