LONDON (AP) — Rupert Grint is following his “Harry Potter” co-star Daniel Radcliffe onto the stage.
Producers announced Friday that 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 this year.
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.
