Rupert Grint gets his Mojo back

New York - Rupert Grint is considering a stage debut in a gritty play about gangland murder.

The 24-year-old actor - who starred as Ron Weasley alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson in eight Harry Potter films - has reportedly performed in a workshop for Jez Butterworth's Mojo, reports the Daily Mail newspaper.

Grint attended the play reading held by Ian Rickson - who directed the original 1995 Royal Court production - with a cast that included 35-year-old actor, Daniel Mays and Robert Sheehan of the E4 drama Misfits.

The gritty drama is set in Soho, London, in 1958 and focuses on a handsome rock star who gets caught in dodgy dealings involving a gangster, a club owner and band manager.

While Grint's representatives are yet to confirm the reports, he is seemingly following in his Harry Potter co-star Daniel's footsteps as Radcliffe appeared in the controversial Equus in 2007, in which he stripped of naked.

Daniel went on to star in a new Broadway production of How to Succeed in Business in 2011 and can currently be seen in West End play The Cripple of Inishmaan.
