“There are going to be expectations at my first stab at it. I’m trying not to think about it too much. It is something that really scares me. But part of it is I want to do something that scares me a little bit. It’s quite good to challenge yourself now and again.”

Rupert Grint Confirmed for West End Debut in “Mojo”!

OtherMovieNewsIcon2July 26th, 2013, 6:54pm– We have just received word from Rupert Grint‘s representatives that we have something very special to look forward to this coming autumn. Rupert is now confirmed (as of today – we like our news fresh!) to play Sweets in the play Mojo directed by Ian Rickson. The play is set to start its run on October 26 at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London with rehearsals to begin in mid-September.

This article from The Daily Mail also features some lovely quotes from director, Ian Rickson, about Rupert:

Rickson explained how he met Grint and then placed him in the Mojo read-through.
‘I’d seen the Potter films with my daughter and always thought Rupert was truthful as Ron Weasley.
There’s something ordinary and centred about him, and in this world of Mojo you want that grittiness,’ Rickson told me.
He noted that he’d spoken to David Yates, director of the final four Potter pictures. Rickson recalled that Yates had told him Grint had ‘hidden depths’ as a thespian.

This will be a completely new role for Rupert and a huge step for him as an actor. We fully support him and have all the faith in the world that he will be absolutely brilliant on stage.
Rupert will have some amazing costars on stage, including Ben Whishaw, Brendan Coyle and Daniel Mays.
The above-mentioned article also describes Rupert‘s character Sweets:

Grint will play a minor hood called Sweets who pops amphetamines like Smarties and does a sort of double act, full of comic menace
