Grint dis­cov­ers his mojo on stage

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SHOWS -

RU­PERT Grint (pic­tured) is fol­low­ing his Harry Pot­ter co-star Daniel Rad­cliffe onto the stage. Grint, who was ginger-haired wizard Ron Weasley in the Pot­ter films, will play a pill-pop­ping gang­ster in a West End re­vival of Jez But­ter­worth’s Mojo later in 2013. Ben Whishaw, Daniel Mays and Down­ton Abbey star Bren­dan Coyle are also in the cast of But­ter­worth’s sav­agely funny drama about Lon­don’s 1950s’ un­der­world. It will be di­rected by Ian Rick­son, who also led the play’s orig­i­nal 1995 pro­duc­tion at the Royal Court Theatre. But­ter­worth went on to write Tony-win­ner Jerusalem. Mojo be­gins pre­views at the Harold Pin­ter Theatre in Lon­don in Oc­to­ber. Rad­cliffe has taken stage roles in Lon­don and New York and is cur­rently star­ring in The Crip­ple of Inish­maan in Lon­don. Grint’s re­cent projects in­clude an episode of Amer­i­can Dad and a voice role in a Post­man Pat fea­ture film.
