Harry Potter star Rupert Grint might not be on The Tonight Show rapping to Blackalicious or being perfect, like Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, but don’t feel too bad for him: he’s got about $50 million in the bank and he’s continued to act. Grint is currently in the Broadway production of It’s Only a Play, starring Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, and Stockard Channing. Plus, even with the presence of Ferris Bueller, Timon, and Rizzo, it’s Grint who’s selling the tickets (he’s the Ed Norton to Lane’s Michael Keaton), with, according to Page Six, “fans who wait for him after the show a couple of times a week to take selfies with him.”
Including one fellow Harry Potter cast member.
Realizing his pal’s popularity, [Tom Felton, who played Draco] arrived in town and showed up after Thursday night’s performance convincingly disguised in a long dirty black wig, a ski hat topped off with a giant pom-pom, round glasses, a fuzzy plaid coat and a camera around his neck. Posing as a fan named “Bob,” Felton waited behind a barricade with other selfie seekers, and then badgered Grint for a pic together when he emerged onto the street after the show. (Via)
Wallace Shawn’s brother from New Jersey next to him looks impressed.
This is nothing compared to the prank Felton pulled years ago, when he convinced the Harry Potter stylists to let Grint have this haircut for an entire movie.
