Rupert Grint: I’m Not Trying To Shock People Or Make A Big Statement!

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.”

Don’t forget that either today or tomorrow the CBGB trailer will debut on Entertainment Tonight. The show is syndicated so check your local listings as what time it comes on. We will have the trailer up as soon as possible.

Rupert Grint in Talks to Make West End Debut in “Mojo”!

OtherMovieNewsIcon2July 5th, 2013, 1:48pm– MojoCover The internet has been buzzing since last night when The Daily Mail published an article about Rupert Grint being in talks to make his theatre debut in the West End production of Mojo. The news spread quickly, especially since the article states that Rupert already took part in a reading with director Ian Rickson and actors Ben Whishaw, Daniel Mays and Rupert’s former Cherrybomb costar Robert Sheehan.

This is very exciting news and we definitely need to keep our fingers crossed. We have just heard back from Rupert‘s representatives, and although they are not ready to make any confirmation on the news, they do say that he is in talks to star in the play.

The Jez Butterworth play has previously been adapted for the stage as well as the cinema, and although we don’t know yet which character Rupert is being considered for, the play itself sounds very challenging and intriguing:

The drama is set in a lowlife club in Soho in 1958 and focuses on a handsome rock singer with star potential who gets caught up in uncouth goings-on involving a gangster, club owner and band manager.

UPDATE: Today, photographer Charlie Gray posted this very interesting tweet:

Fantastic shoot this morning with the beautiful Helen McCory & charming Rupert Grint!

Rupert‘s representatives have told us that this was a charity photoshoot and that we can expect the pictures to be out around October. We can’t wait to see them!
