Rupert Grint Takes On Rocker Role In ‘CBGB’

Rupert Grint and Alan Rickman are reuniting for a new film.

Variety reports the Harry Potter stars will be in the drama CBGB – a story about the legendary New York City club. Rickman will play Hilly Kristal – the founder of the iconic venue. Blondie, The Talking Heads and The Ramones were regular acts. Grint, 23, will play Cheetah Chrome, guitarist of the Dead Boys.

The English actor – like Emma Watson – seems to be straying away from the big blockbuster-type films.

In an interview with The Guardian last year – Grint said with fame there’s the trust factor and hoping people he meets don’t sell stories to the tabloids.

He said, “Yeah. I do think about that. It’s always in the back of your head. Not so much kiss and tell. Just the trusting. With anyone, even with friends. You’ve got to think of what people’s intentions are.”
