Rupert Grint & Daniel Mays Talk Mojo on Lorraine!

MojoIcon2December 31st, 2013, 4:54am– Rupert Grint and Daniel Mays appeared together this morning on ITVs Lorraine to talk about Mojo, and it proved to be a delightful interview where their on-stage bromance were visible to see.

They talked about how happy they are about the audience’s positive response to the play, their individual nominations in the WhatsOnStage Awards (VOTE!) as well as their past projects playing Ron Weasley and Ronny Biggs. They were also asked what 2014 had in store for them, but like true actors they dodged the question beautifully and never gave a proper answer.

We hope to have a video of this interview up soon, but until then we have uploaded lots of screenshots in our gallery here.

UPDATE: An online version of the interview has found it’s way to YouTube (thanks to BC TV):

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.

Video: Rupert Grint’s “I Dare You” Feature from Hunger Magazine!

RupertNewsIconOctober 3rd, 2013, 9:24am– Last week, a video surfaced of Jamie Campbell Bower daring Rupert Grint to shave off all of his hair (… ALL of it!). Today, Hunger Magazine has published Rupert’s reaction to the dare and his much-awaited response.

Check out the video below where we also get to see Rupert fool around on the photoshoot set and talk about past dares and some of the weird things he collects:

We also get a small snippet from the interview (the rest can be read in the magazine which you can buy now here):

Rupert Grint made his name as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter, but we’re about to see a very different side of him in his upcoming projects. In addition to being a talented actor, he’s the proud owner of around 15 llamas…

WHAT ARE WE ABOUT TO SEE YOU IN?
I’ve got a couple of things coming out at the end of this year. The first one is a film called The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman in which I play an aspiring porn star. That’s with Shia LaBeouf. And there’s also CBGB, which is about the New York club CBGB that discovered loads of punk bands.

TELL US A BIT MORE ABOUT THAT FIRST ONE.
It’s basically a road trip about [Shia LaBeouf’s character] finding himself and travelling to Bucharest. On his journey he meets me and Luke [James Buckley] in a hostel. We’re both influenced by drugs. My character is a wannabe porn star who OD’s on Viagra. It was nice to do something completely different. It was a real change.
Is it also very different going from something as big as a Harry Potter production? It takes a while to get used to. I’ve done a few things outside Potter now. You can’t really compare it. Everything’s smaller, but it’s more intimate, more personal. Potter was this huge machine, a unique set-up.

DO YOU GET A LOT OF OFFERS TO BER VERSIONS OF RON?
It’s hard to know what to do, I felt a bit lost for a while. There are a lot of the best-friend stuff. I’m not in a rush. It’s nice to do things that appeal to me. I’m always looking for weird experiences and something completely different, and these two films definitely tick those boxes for me.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE ON THE HARRY POTTER SET, SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE THE SAME AGE AS YOU?
We were all kids, particularly in the beginning. We all left school and formed this school dynamic. None of us took it too seriously. It was just fun really.
