cbgb icon3August 7th, 2013, 2:40pm–In a brand new interview with USA Today, Rupert Grint talks about CBGB, Mojo, and his current taste in roles. On CBGB he said:

“It’s not really that I am trying to shock people or make a big statement,” says Grint, “It’s just part of moving on.”

USA Today continued in confirming a scene where Rupert, as Cheetah Chrome, drops his pants to prove he’s a real ginger. And during a show one of the The Dead Boys band members engages in a sexual act on stage.

He also talks about his West End debut playing petty crook and drug addict Sweets and had this to say about it:

“This is a completely new thing, a whole new level,” says Grint. “It does scare me. That’s kind of a reason why I want to do it.”

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.
