Rupert Grint at Shooting Stars Benefit Pairing Dinner

Prior to tomorrow's kick off for the Shooting Stars Golf Tournament at the Grove in London, a pairing dinner was held tonight for the teams. Rupert attended and we have two pictures to share from the red carpet, plus one from the Shooting Stars Twitter page.

Rupert Grint Cameos in MTV's "After Hours" Webisode

Ladies and gents, we've been saying Rupert Grint's name wrong all along. It's actually Roblert Glint.

(But not really.)

The joke is all part of an MTV "After Hours" webisode with actor Joe Manganiello from True Blood.  The webisode mocks an infomercial about a video for hard to pronounce celebrity names. Rupert shows up as a "celebrity testimonial." Watch the funny clip below!

 

 

(Note: Rupert's segment was recorded while he was on set, in costume as Cheetah Chrome for CBGB.)

'CBGB' to Premiere at CBGB Music Festival in October

The Hollywood Reporter announced today that CBGB has not only been picked up by a North American distributor, but that it will also premiere during the annual CBGB Music Festival!

The CBGB Music Festival runs from October 9 - 13 in New York City. A screening date has not yet been revealed, but stay tuned!

XLrator Media has all U.S. distribution rights, but it's unclear at the moment how wide of a release CBGB will get. But not much longer now until fans get to see Rupert on the big screen as Cheetah Chrome! In the meantime, check out our gallery featuring posters, behind the scenes pics and movie stills.

Rupert Grint Attends Stroud Truck Pull

If you've seen our Twitter today, you'll have noticed a few re-tweets from people attending this Monday's truck pull in the English town of Stroud.

Rupert was there to support his sister Samantha, performing under her stage name Ghost of Samantha, and hadn't planned to take part...until his mum volunteered him!

Check out the images below here (thanks to staffer Céline!) of Rupert truck-pulling and hula hooping!

Exclusive : Rupert Grint Orders Green Eggs and Ham

When Harlyn Primary School began organising a World Book Night, they decided to ask for messages from some of the children's favourite celebrities, to encourage reluctant readers to try their favourite book.

One Rupert Grint was a very popular suggestion, not only because the children love him (and the school awards a Harry Potter scroll to children who have read the entire series), but because, during the Olympic Torch Relay last year, he took over the Olympic torch from the one hundred-year-old great-grandmother of James and George, two of the boys involved in the Book Night, and whose mother volunteered to track down a message from Rupert.

Luckily, she contacted RGN and we were only too pleased to help her.

And Rupert, being Rupert, replied with not just a title and a 'good luck!', but with something simply perfect for primary school age children :

"My favourite book as a child was 'Green Eggs and Ham' by Dr.Suess. All of the doctor's books had some kind of effect on me, but it was this story I could never and probably still can't get out of my head, I was obsessed, I knew every word off by heart, everything about it was perfect, the simple surreal rhyming style and the sometimes quite haunting illustrations, my mum even made me green eggs and ham for dinner once, with green food colouring, it was actually quite disgusting, but I just needed to try it!"

As you can imagine, everyone at the school was utterly thrilled. The children have made Rupert his own BAFTA, which apparently he is welcome to collect any time he likes, and have this message for him :

"Dear Rupert

We were really excited to hear from you! We think you must really like reading books because your reasons for liking the Dr Seuss book Green Eggs and Ham was very descriptive. What great memories you have.

Most of us at book club have read all of his books too. Our best words to describe his books are; short and snappy, funny, weird and random. He's quite unrealistic and weird but we think that's why we will never forget them!

In our photograph we have your email reply in a frame so that everyone in the school can read it.

We will treasure your reply forever as you wrote from the heart and that was so special for you to share that with us. We made you a "Book Club Bafta". Now can you see how much we loved hearing from you! You are awesome!!!!!

Thank you from all of us at Harlyn Primary School, we are holding your Bafta! (ready for you to collect! Lol!)

PS try Nigella Lawson's version of Green Eggs and Ham, it looks quite yummy!"

They sent us this picture of some of the children with their favourite books, Rupert's award and his framed quote.

  

Remember how, when Delia Smith would use cranberries in a recipe, and all shops in the UK would sell out of cranberries? Well, with the number of green eggs being demanded of Harlyn Primary parents, I suspect local supermarkets should stock up on green food colouring...

Happy Birthday Stephanie!

This past December, Steph and I visited the Harry Potter Exhibition in Times Square. We’d been excited to visit for almost 2 years, since the first time it stopped in NYC.

To me, there’s no-one in the world who knows Rupert’s (or possibly even the Harry Potter) history like she does. If you visit Steph’s house, she has various versions of both the book and movie series carefully arranged on a shelf in her room...as well as an action figure or two.

The same goes for magazines she’s collected over the years with the trio (or Rupert) on the cover. Lovingly organized in her office, they’re kept safe in the manner of a true fan who cherishes the history of the last ten years.

When we reported together from the last Deathly Hallows press conference in 2011 it was, despite having worked on RG.net together since 2005, the first time we had met in person. I remember Rupert entering the room and Steph and I taking turns playfully jabbing one another in the ribs...he’ll never lose that effect on us. Steph got to ask the first question which, to this date, she can’t remember.

If there’s one thing I can tell you, it’s that Steph is usually quite a cool character. But in those moments, I’ve never seen her more excited.

However on the flip side of this, when she got sorted into Hufflepuff on Pottermore almost two years ago, I’ve never seen her more annoyed.

“I’m a Gryffindor!” Steph ranted, “What the hell does Pottermore know anyway?!!”

“Oh sure,” I joked, “You know...it’s not like it was written by J.K. or anything.”

So it came as a surprise to me when we entered the beginning area of the HP Exhibit, where guests sit with the Sorting Hat, and Steph *willingly volunteered* the fact that she was Hufflepuff to be sorted as such, with that little bit of badger pride. And I couldn’t help but smile.

Because the truth is, Steph’s always been a Hufflepuff.

From the point that we met in 2004 on Livejournal and started our long journey here, her task of reporting news on Rupert to his fans has been a relentless one filled with love and dedication.

And if there’s a second thing I can tell you, it’s that there would be no RupertGrint.net without Steph.

So, please join us in wishing her the best birthday yet through the comments and giving a great big huge ‘thank you!!!’ for all of her hard work over the last 8 years.

We love you, S!
