Prior to the movie trailer premiere of "CBGB" on Entertainment Tonight this week, USA Today published a sneak peek article about "CBGB" and spoke exclusively to Rupert Grint about his role.

The complete article can be read here. Some choice quotes:

"I have always wanted to play a punk," says Grint, 24, who stars as rocker Cheetah Chrome in the historical drama CBGB (opening in limited markets Oct. 11). "It was really good fun."

"It was a real buzz. We actually felt like we were in a band, which is something I have always wanted to do, secretly," Grint says. "It was nice to have a little taste of that."

There is also a photo gallery with some stills from the movie, and additional quotes from Rupert:

Grint, a fan of the music, says he also loved the fashion. Even the dog collar. "Weirdly, I kind of got used to the collar. I kind of felt naked when I wasn't wearing it." 

Justin Bartha as Stiv Bators, the lead singer of The Dead Boys. On-screen bandmate Grint says, "We just played the music really loud, and we'd just go for it. And we'd get into all sort of disgusting things. It was a real buzz." 

Rupert Grint says Cheetah Chrome was on set for 'CBGB,' in which has has a cameo. "I spent a lot of time with him," Grint says. "He had loads of stories. I could sense the passion."
