While Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have been lining up movie roles, things have been quieter on the Rupert Grint front. However now the young actor has booked two roles, according to Variety, as he’ll appear in Fredrik Bond’s The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman and Randall Miller’s CBGB.
In The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, Shia LaBeouf stars as Charlie Countryman, who is just a normal guy until he falls in love with the one girl who will probably get him killed. When Charlie meets the absolutely irresistible Gabi she’s already been claimed by Nigel, an insanely violent crime boss with a gang of thugs at his disposal. It isn’t known exactly who grint will play.
CBGB recently booked Alan Rickman to CBGB club owner Hilly Kristal. The film follows the New York City club’s impact on the underground music scene, where it almost inadvertently gave birth to punk. Grint will play Cheetah Chrome of the Dead Boys, who played a prominent role during the club’s rise.
