Rupert Grint on The Andrew Marr Show!

MojoNewsIcon2November 10th, 2013, 5:52am– This morning, Rupert Grint appeared on The Andrew Marr Show on BBC One. He was interviewed in the beautiful Harold Pinter Theatre where he is currently playing Sweets on stage in Mojo.

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:

Rupert Grint Talks With Huffington Post About CBGB, Halloween, and Accents!

cbgb icon3October 12th, 2013, 11:27am–Continuing from yesterday’s amazing interview, Rupert Grint and Alan Rickman sat down with The Huffington Post to talk about CBGB as promotion continues for the film which will hit more theaters this weekend. In this lovely new interview we learn all about how Halloween was for Rupert including how he never got to trick-or-treat as a kid, that he made his own Play-Doh costume, and his favorite Halloween candy. Rupert also talks about reuniting with Alan as well as who else he’d love to reunite with. And he answers whether he likes stage or film better.

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?

Of course.

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.

Rupert Grint Talks Alan Rickman, Dropping His Pants, And More!

cbgb icon2October 11th, 2013, 11:30pm–While Rupert Grint couldn’t attend the premiere for CBGB in LA or New York he’s still found a way to promote the film by doing plenty of interviews! Today The Daily Beast has released an interview they did where Rupert talks about the real Cheetah Chrome, wanting to become a rock star, and working again with Alan Rickman. This has certainly been an excellent week for Rupert goodies, hasn’t it?

What’s it like working with Alan Rickman (who played Professor Snape in the Harry Potter franchise) in this totally different capacity?

It was weird! I really love Alan. He’s always been one of my favorites. It was just kind of strange to see him in this whole new character and in such a completely different environment. I haven’t seen him much outside of the Potter set after we wrapped, so just seeing him in another environment is odd. It’s kind of like Snape is suddenly a different person. It was weird. But he’s great, and it was nice to have someone who knew your face on set. He made the whole thing a great experience.

So now that you’ve done this movie and played a rock star, any plans to try out doing the real thing?

I’d love to. But I don’t know…I think that ship’s sailed. It’s a dream, but I don’t think I’d really be good at it. I’m not a natural musician. But it was really fun to pretend. I’d like to pretend again.

Rupert Grint: New Interview about CBGB, Tattoos and Twitter!

RupertNewsIconOctober 8th, 2013, 1:36pm– Rupert Grint has done a new interview with Vulture.com where he talks about an array of things. The interview was done over the phone since Rupert is very busy with Mojo rehearsals at the moment.

One of the things a lot of fans are putting on their wish list is to finally see Rupert on twitter. Vulture asks about this and we once again get confirmation that he is indeed NOT on twitter… yet:

Every Twitter feed claiming to be you doesn’t seem like it’s really you. Are they impostors? Are you even on Twitter?
No, I’m not. If you saw one, that would be a fake one, yeah. I don’t know. It’s weird that people pretend to do that, pretend that they’re me. But I’ve never done Twitter. A lot of people have already said that I should give it a go, but I don’t think I’d be very good at it! It’s just not something … I’m not great at any of those things, really. Maybe one day, though.

The rest of the interview is mostly about CBGB and we get a hilarious comment on the (very special) scene where Rupert had to take his pants off:

You wear a dog collar throughout the film. Did you get to keep it?
No. I really wanted to, though. [Laughs.] I kind of got quite attached to the dog collar. Wearing it every day, I felt naked without it.

Not as naked as the scene in which you drop trou!
Oh, right, yeah. Yes. That was quite fun. I didn’t really think about it until I had to do it, but it was kind of quite a tricky process. I think in the end, we needed a sock contraption. [Laughs.] So that kind of worked. That was the first time I had ever done anything like that. Justin Bartha had to do a lot more, actually. He had to get his waxed. So there was a lot of preparation there. Luckily, I don’t have that issue.
