Exclusive: RG.us attends Mojo Opening Night – Report, Pictures & Video!

ExclusiveNewsIconNovember 4th, 2013, 12:30pm– When Rupert Grint made his stage debut last Saturday (October 26th) in Mojo, the staff at RG.us was in attendance. It was an incredible night and we are all so proud of Rupert for taking this huge step in his career.

Since we had 5 staffers in London for the play, we wanted to give you all one review featuring all of our opinions instead of 5 separete reviews. So we all met on Skype and made a ReviewChat where we simply chatted about all our favourite things from the play, with focus on Rupert of course.

You can read our ReviewChat HERE.

We had some really eventful few days in London, and we’ve made a special report where we summarize our amazing meet-ups with Rupert. Although, we did not sit down with him for an official interview, we did have the opportunity to ask him some questions about Mojo and his first experience with stage work.

Read our report HERE and check out a few of our pictures HERE.

Below, you can watch a video of us meeting Rupert the evening before the opening night:

As a bonus, The Sunday Times had an interview with Rupert featuring a brand new (and pretty!) photoshoot. You can check out the scans in our gallery here. It’s well worth the read since we learn more new things about Rupert than we’ve done in ages.

Again, we urge any and all Rupert fans to go and see Mojo. You can buy tickets for the play here!

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

Let us know in the comments if you’re planning to go see Rupert on stage in Mojo and how excited you are for him to be doing this play.
