March 8th, 2013, 12:43am–Two things that came out in the past few hours featuring Rupert Grint‘s latest work. First off is an exclusive clip that MTV obtained from Into The White that will be released in the US in April, but is currently available to rent on iTunes for $9.99. The clip is quite spoilery, so I suggest that if you don’t want to know any major plot points of the movie do not watch this clip! But for those who do not care, the clip is fantastic and shows just how great the movie is. You can view the clip here.
You may also remember that Rupert narrated the documentary “We Are Aliens” which is currently playing in many areas. The official website for the movie has all the clips up and you can go to their site here to watch. At the bottom of the page is a link to download all the clips. Enjoy!
Last, but not least, Rupert’s Super Clyde co-star Justine Lupe tweeted earlier today that they are beginning to film the pilot for the show! Let’s hope that CBS picks this up for the fall! (If you’re wondering, we should know no later than May on whether CBS picks up the show.)
UPDATE: You can now see another new clip from Into the White, courtesy of Movieweb.com right HERE which features Rupert in an intense confrontation with David Kross. They have also made a featurette where the film is reviewed – check that out below and remember to watch this “profound and powerful tale” in theatres, on iTunes or even on DVD:
UPDATE #2: And the clips just keep pouring in. In this new clip we get to see a very provocative Smith using the bathroom, Norwegian style:
February 26th, 2013, 9:49pm–As the filming date for the pilot of Rupert Grint‘s Super Clyde gets closer (and sorry, we’re unsure of the date, but we know it will be made before the CBS upfronts in May), more cast announcements are coming out. Today, TVLine is reporting that Justine Lupe (Harry’s Law) has been cast as Faith, Clyde’s older sister. It’s been rumored that Faith will have once been an obese person who uses the inheritance to gain revenge on those who made fun of her during this time. (Please remember, until we have more information, please take that with a grain of salt.) We do know that there are still several roles yet to be cast including Clyde’s love interest, an uncle, as well plus a character named Mr. Randolph (no information about this character is currently available). Stay tuned for more!
February 24th, 2013, 12:46am–During his time in Berlinale, Rupert Grint did quite a few interviews to promote The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. Today one of those nice interviews with Rupert has popped up via Entertainment Daily News. In it Rupert talks about why he chose to do the role, working with Shia Lebeouf, and seeing more of him in the role. You can view it all here. (Or watch below!) Thanks to the anonymous tip! (Rupert’s part starts around 1:20 mark and ends around 3:03.)
And if you haven’t seen it already, new news about Super Clyde has hit the internet. Check out the story below for more. We will probably get more casting news in the coming weeks and hopefully know by May on whether CBS picks up the pilot. Fingers crossed!
February 23rd, 2013, 1:55am–As you know, Rupert Grint was cast in a CBS pilot called ‘Super Clyde‘. Tonight we bring you more news in the form of casting of Clyde’s older brother: Tyler Labine who will play the character Duke. This is according to Entertainment Weekly. Labine’s other credits include The CW’s Reaper, Fox’s Sons of Tucson, CBS’ Mad Love and NBC’s Animal Practice. This also means that Rupert will most likely be putting on an American accent for the show. (While this seemed obvious to me, there were some out there wondering, so I think this news tells us he will be an American character.) For a recap, Super Clyde centers around a meek unassuming fast food worker who decides to become a super hero.
We also want to remind you that while Rupert has been casted in this role, it does not mean that this will be picked up by CBS. This is only a pilot. And although this one seems to have the most buzz, that sadly means little. Of course, if you ask me, I think it would be great compared with The Big Bang Theory, don’t you?
UPDATE: For those interesting The Hollywood Reporter has a bit more on Labine’s character: “Labine will play Clyde’s older brother Duke, an ex-jock type who is the kind of crass slob whose imagination doesn’t go anywhere beyond his own creature comforts. Duke gets an unexpected windfall: a long-delayed $100,000 per month inheritance from his dead uncle, Bill.”
February 18th, 2013, 4:14pm–While news is winding down about Rupert Grint being cast in Super Clyde and everyone has had a chance to catch our exclusive interview with him, we now bring you even more images from Berlinale where Rupert promoted The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. We have more from the photocall here, the press conference here and the premiere here. We will still be bringing you more, so stay tuned for that!
We also have a lovely newspaper article from the German IN Magazine which features a snippet about Rupert calling co-star Til Schweiger‘s daughter, Emma. Here is the translation:
“Also Til Schweiger (49) is taking his spot between the Hollywood-Stars this time. He represents the movie “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman” with his co-stars Shia LaBeouf (26) and Ron Weasley – damn, I meant Rupert Grint (24). By the way, he has a big worshipper at the Schweiger-Family. Til:s little daughter Emma (10). “Rupert spoke some greetings into my iPhone, she was totally flashed”, told the daddy. Maybe the Gingerhead could invite Emma into Diagon Alley sometime.”
You can view the scan here. (The caption next to Rupert’s pic says: “Sorry Rupert Grint, even though you did a great job in the new movie, you’re still Harry Potter’s friend Ron in our heads.”
