Ice Cream Man is an unofficial - though very professional and extremely good looking! - fansite, dedicated to the gorgeous and talented Rupert Grint. Alas, we are in no way affiliated with Rupert, his family or representatives. (*sob*) The site is ad-free and non-profit.

March 16, 2013, 3:47pm– Today, we are ready to bring something back that was very popular among all you lovely Rupert Grint fans a little while ago: our beloved forum. We have had it under construction for some time, but we finally think that it’s time to bring it back so that we can all discuss everything Rupert related in the same place. Rupert has so many projects recently finished, not yet released or just about to begin. So we want to discuss and analyze all of Rupert‘s projects with you all, whether it be his former projects like Harry Potter or Driving Lessons, or his new and exciting releases like CBGB or The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, or the fact that Stephen Fry has just been confirmed to star alongside Rupert in Super Clyde. So join us and have some fun talking about everything and anything Rupert right HERE – it should be easy for everyone to sign up, but if you have any questions or problems, don’t hesitate to write us here in the comments or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To start everyone off, why don’t we go to the forums and discuss Rupert‘s brilliant Scouse accent in Into the White, which is perfectly depicted in this new clip released from the film:
March 15th, 2013, 9:58pm–While some of the casting for Super Clyde has been low key, very exciting news has just hit the web. Stephen Fry has been cast as Randolph who is also the butler. (He has also been described as the handy man and uncle that lives with Clyde, Duke and Faith.) You can read all about this exciting casting news here at Deadline. For those who are keeping score, Stephen Fry and Rupert Grint have crossed paths in some way quite a few times. Mr. Fry was in Thunderpants and also appeared in the commercial for the come visit Britain campaign. He also narrated the British version of the Harry Potter books. Fans of the TV show Bones will also remember him as the lovable Gordon Gordon.
A few more roles have been casted in recent weeks, though these were more low key. Recently the role of Jolene, Clyde’s crush, has been cast in the form of Laura Catalina along with Andy Spencer as Mr. Phillips (his role is a mystery, but rumors are that Mr. Phillips is Clyde’s boss at the fast food restaurant.)
March 15 2013, 9:54am– We now have our very first footage of Rupert Grint rocking out on stage as Cheetah Chrome in CBGB – the movie’s official facebook page (remember to “Like” their page to show your excitement and support for the film) released this clip earlier today.
Check out the clip below – Rupert‘s appearance is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, so keep a keen eye out for him (hint: don’t blink around the 0:30 mark).
We were able to grap a couple of screenshots from the few seconds and you can check them out in our gallery here.
Remember that you still have 5 days left to bid on this amazing poster signed by Rupert Grint, Fredrik Bond and Til Schweiger – this is a very special item that was given to us exclusively, so make sure you bid for it so that we can raise a good amount of money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital. All you have to do is go to our eBay page and start bidding!
We have also recieved a statement from BCH after we told them about this special auction:
All the money raised from this event will be supporting our Children’s Cancer Centre Appeal. This is a life changing campaign for children and families suffering from Cancer. We are trying to raise £4 million to develop a new Cancer Centre here at Birmingham Children’s Hospital for children across the Midlands and beyond. With your help each one of these families will be in a place that is comfortable, warm and entertaining at a time when they need these things the most.
Many Thanks for your support,
Hamish Shilliday, Hospital Fundraiser, Birmingham Children’s Hospital
March 11, 2013, 10:44am– A new video has surfaced which shows Rupert Grint lending his support to another heartwarming cause. In October of last year he visited the warehouse of the West African Relief where he saw all the items that were about to be brought to Sierra Leone. Check out the video below to see the amazing things that this organization does, watch as clothes, medicine and vital supplies are distributed to the orphans and hear the lovely things being said about Rupert‘s support.
West African Relief is a Non Governmental, non profit making charity organization whose entire focus is upon the alleviation and eradication of poverty in West Africa.
Remember that we have just launched our exclusive auction where you can bid on a Berlinale poster signed by Rupert, Fredrik Bond and Til Schweiger. Go HERE to read all about it and bid bid bid.
UPDATE: We’ve just uploaded 22 photos of Rupert from the West African Reliefpromo event that took place in October of last year. Check them out in the gallery here.
March 10, 2013, 6:25 am– We only have one more Rupert Grint goodie from Berlinale to share with all you wonderful fans, and this time we are auctioning off a very special Berlinale 2013 poster signed by Rupert Grint, Fredrik Bond and Til Schweiger.
The poster was autographed by the guys the day of our exclusive interview which occured the day after the International Premiere of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman at the Berlin International Film Festival (Sunday, February 10th 2013).
We are auctioning off this amazing poster because Rupert made a very special and personal request – he wanted this poster to raise money for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital where a friend of his family is undergoing chemotherapy. Of course we wanted to make this wish come true, and now we just need YOU to start bidding for the poster on our special ebay page. The auction will go on for 10 days and all the proceeds will go to the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. This is open for everyone everywhere in the world.
All you need to do is go HERE and bid the amount you’d be willing to give for the poster. Every little bit helps – Birmingham Children’s Hospital writes:
Whether its £5 to fund some crayons and colouring books whilst waiting for test results, or £42,000 for a life saving machine that operates as a mechanical heart. Charitable donations are key to making us what we are: a centre of paediatric excellence that the whole country depends on.
