Rupert Grint AKA Ron Weasley Gets TV Show

Rupert Grint, of the Harry Potter film series, is starring in a new show for CBS. Are we surprised by this? Because I’m a little surprised by this. I think it’s great, I just never would have pictured him as the type to star in a show on a major network.

It’s going to be shot as a single camera comedy. That’s so hot right now. Mr. Grint plays a nerd named Clyde who dreams of being a superhero but works in fast food. One day he receives an unexpected inheritence stipulating that every month he gets $100,000. He decides to be a real life superhero by using that money to help people. Wow that sounds boring. I’m going to pretend that instead of all of that, he plays a gay sex addict obsessed with Lord of the Rings and is having an affair with a closeted gay man, played by Hugh Laurie, who is married to the first female president of the United States. That sounds like a way better show. Come at me, CBS.

It’s titled Super Clyde and it’s from Greg Garcia who gave us Raising Hope. Was that show any good? I never saw it. Hey, best of luck to ya, Rupert!

Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint ARE Good Friends, So There

See now, how nice is it to have one of the previous night’s posts about that darling (and f-cking hot) Daniel Radcliffe, only to wake up and find that the first post of the following day is also solely dedicated to Daniel? There should be more days like this in the week, my friends.

This time, I have even better news for you, if the news about Dan liking hairy snizatch didn’t just completely put you up over the top (it did me, that’s for sure). Turns out that the rumors about Daniel and Rupert Grint are completely untrue, and the two are actually good friends. From People:

There’s no bad blood between Harry Potter costars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.

Despite an interview that Radcliffe recently did that “was blown out of proportion,” the Woman in Black star says he and Grint, 23, are “very, very good friends.”

“It’s just ridiculous,” Radcliffe, 22, told On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “Someone said, ‘Are you in contact with Rupert and Emma [Watson] at the moment?’ And I said, ‘Emma and I have been texting recently, but Rupert and I never text.’ ”

Apologizing to fans who took the quotes the wrong way, he explains, “We have never texted each other in 10 years of filming. We just never have. We are lazy texters. We’ve never texted each other back. And we both know that’s how the other person is.”

But the big-screen besties make up for their lack of digital communication in person.

“I know that the next time I see Rupert, we’ll sit next to each other and chat, and it will be like old times,” Radcliffe says. “It will be fantastic … It’s just that we’re not constantly texting each other.”

So, see? They are BFFs, and doesn’t that kind of make the world a better place – just by that friendship existing and, you know, being genuine? When I first heard the news that Ron and Harry just weren’t that into one another, I didn’t sleep for a week. But now? Maybe I can sleep fitfully, and restart my tradition of falling asleep to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (which I stopped last night, because I found it to be extremely inappropriate, especially in light of pubic developments), but I just don’t know yet, guys. Even this kind of news – good news! – may never change how I feel, now, about Daniel Radcliffe.

Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint Aren’t Friends

Daniel Radcliffe has been a busy little man in the days since Harry Potter. He’s been filming and promoting terrifying movies, he’s starred in a Broadway show, he’s beaten an addiction to booze. He even got himself a lady and is thinking about becoming an archaeologist! But even with all of those activities, all of those obligations and relationships, he still manages to text Emma Watson, like, all the time.

Rupert Grint though? Yeah, not so much:

Harry Potter fans prepare for a shocker.

The three stars of the film franchise are far from close buddies in real life, according to Hogwarts wizard DANIEL RADCLIFFE.

Dan – promoting his new flick The Woman in Black this week – revealed that while he does keep in touch with Hermione, er I mean EMMA WATSON, he’s hardly ever in touch with RUPERT GRINT.

Dan said: “There’s this idea that Emma, Rupert and myself are the best of friends who always hang out together.

“I’m just going to put out there, Emma and I text all the time but Rupert and I never text each other, we never see each other.

“If I see him every six months or so, it’s a friendly ‘hello, how’s things with you’ but that’s about it.”

Did that just hurt you as much as it hurt me? Did you have that same image in your mind that these three really are the best of friends, that they talk to each other on the phone at least once a week (always a three-way call, they don’t play favorites), and that when they’re all free, they get together and run around the forest with sticks for wands and recreate the magic that they all shared for so long? Because that’s what I always thought. How sad is it that they really do seem to play favorites? I wonder if Emma ever calls up Ron*?

I also went through all the pictures we have available of the Harry Potter kids, and I couldn’t find a single photo of Daniel and Rupert without Emma, and Emma is usually wedged in the middle. There were plenty of Daniel and Emma, as there were a good few of Rupert and Emma, but none of just the two boys. I even did a good ol’ Google Image search, and I found one picture of just Daniel and Rupert. Just the one. Does that mean anything? Am I reading way too much into this?

By the way, since Harry Potter wrapped up, Rupert has been painting elephants, doing arts and crafts for Tom Felton, and touching our hearts by performing Christmas miracles. Oh, and according to IMDB, he’s filmed one movie, is working on another, and is signed on for two more. All in all though, he doesn’t seem to be quite as busy as Daniel, so really what I’m saying is “pick up the goddamn phone, Rupert.”

*I’m absolutely sure Emma calls up Ron and she calls him up often. After you have two fictional children named Hugo and Rosie, you develop a bond that can’t be broken, and I won’t hear anything different.
