Avatar Image says: I think I just went to hell. That is too hot to even deny on the leaky threads! And that pic where he looks like he's going to kill someone? Wow that boy can act!Avatar Image says: Can't wait for the film! The pictures look lovely.Avatar Image says: the link didn't work for me.Avatar Image says: Oh ... my ... gosh ... I just died. SO SEXY.Avatar Image says: Oh wow, Sue totally mentioned Tao!!!! Cool.... *SCREAMS* at the lovely pics *thud*Avatar Image says: Gulp. Man, whoa! Wow! He's pretty.Avatar Image says: who knew that lil ron weasley would grow up to looks like this... i cant totally wait for this movie!!!!!! ;)Avatar Image says: Rupert is looking quite delicious right there. Avatar Image says: Rupert's looking really yummy in these!Avatar Image says: I thought the TinTin movie was a rumour....LOLAvatar Image says: ^ What does that even mean, Sonja?Avatar Image says: The hair, the hair. Very Tin Tin-esque - so cute :0)Avatar Image says: I can actually see what people mean about the Tin Tin thing... but Tin Tin was nowhere near this hot!!! <3Avatar Image says: OMG!!!!!! wooooooow Rupert!!! I can't wait for this film anymore! it looks so awesome! and he is so damn hot!!!Avatar Image says: My oh my Malachy!!! Avatar Image says: sorry but he looks not good.it is comedy movie ot tv film?Avatar Image says: I have to disagree Regina, he looks very good! Its NOT a comedy and its NOT a made for TV movie. Why do people keep saying that?! IdiotsAvatar Image says: @ dove I have no idea. Wild Target is the comedy (and has the same distributor as Little Miss Sunshine!), and Cherrybomb looks very much like an indie drama. I get the TinTin reference now. lol Yeah, the hair is similar, but on Rupert, it's smokin' hot. Avatar Image says: holy gosh!! seems like his character will be very different from Ron!!! i can't wait for the film!! hope it will be out in the film festival in my country too!!! Avatar Image says: OMG!! OMG!! is that Rupert? he looks extremely hot, I cannnot wait for this movie!!Avatar Image says: you know what, I realized something Rupert is such a talented actor that he can wear anything and make it look good, like in GOF he had to use that horrible thing and he make it look hot and now he is wearing that haristyle and looks GORGEOUS!! I like the fact he is not afraid to try different things when it comes to the charecter he is playing!! RUPERT GRINT ILY YOU ROCK!!Avatar Image says: Seriously. It's an Indie Drama...with award winning writers and directors, premiering at a film festival. It's not a comedy, it's not a cartoon, it's not made for TV. Another HP actress does that. Rupert does real quality films. Read the summary again.Avatar Image says: "Rupert does real quality films." I agree on that, so far he´s done: Harry Potter and the philosophers stone Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix 5 real quality films so far, and 2 more can probably be added in the next couple of years - not many actors can achieve that.......Oh wait except from Dan Radcliffe and Emma Watson. Avatar Image says: Oh hey look guys, it's Sonja trying to talk Rupert and his fans down for no reason at all again. Stop talking if you have nothing positive to say in relation to Cherrybomb.Avatar Image says: Sonja, you left out Driving Lessons and Thunderpants (though I don't know if this is quality...never seen it). I think what Eruditewitch is getting at is that Rupert hasn't done one made for TV movie. All his projects outside of HP are for the silver screen. I expect Cherrybomb to have a wider distribution than DL (which had one wider than December Boys) and Wild Target will probably be distributed similar to Little Miss Sunshine (as they have the same distributor). Basically, the trio actors are different in the types of projects they like to take and some people just think that Rupert has made the best choices. There's no need to belittle him. Personally, I think Dan will go on to do mostly theater after HP, Rupert will do more films, and Emma...well, she could stop acting altogether and I think she'd be happy. I don't think she will, though, it's just really hard to tell what kind of medium she'll go into. She seemed to really like playing Princess Pea.Avatar Image says: Yes, Patrick...be afraid..be very very afraid..... mollywobbles 23: Well, calling Thunderpants a "real quality" movie is like saying "Osama Bin Lady deserves the Nobel peace price" It´s funny about Thunderpants actually: That movie is....to be honest...the worst peace of crap ever made. but I really like Rupert´s performance, because it was so "Not-Ron". I haven´t seen Driving Lessons, so I can´t make jugdement about that Eruditewitch: So Tv-movies is "non-quality".....Hmmmmmm...that´s a really interesting statement....Will you say the same when Rupert is doing a TV-movie??Avatar Image says: people are entitled to their own opinions but i just found it sad that some people just tried to bash rupert when all he does is acting in various genres and doing charities. it is not like he shows off a lot then why target him in the first place? no need to attack him at all. as for the pictures, it seems like he's not satisfy with his life/situation and that's why he would do something unexpected later. i can't wait. btw, kim is so cute Avatar Image says: I can't believe people are snobbish enough to think films are somehow superior to tv or theatre just because rupert hasn't done those. What will you say if he does decide to do those? And seeing as maggie smith, ralph fiennes, gambon, coltraine, branagh and a lot of the other hp actors have done tv and theatre, it's hardly less quality.Avatar Image says: I can't believe people are snobbish enough to think films are somehow superior to tv or theatre just because rupert hasn't done those.

And seeing as maggie smith, ralph fiennes, gambon, coltraine, branagh and a lot of the other hp actors have done tv and theatre, it's hardly less quality.Avatar Image says: All of this get's on my darn nerves everytime. The ENTIRE trio is doing their thing!!! Their thing might be different, but isn't that good? There are so many different genres and outlets for them to make a living in entertainment. I think they ALL will do well with whatever they choose and I don't think any of them have made a mistep. They have all taken on experiences outside of HP and they have been opportunities for them to learn and discover what they want to do after the franchise is over. Avatar Image says: AMEN AJWC1!Avatar Image says: I think Emma has a career in modeling...and maybe law! Her skills don't seem to fit the silver screen. But she may prove me wrong. Rupert does quality films: That statement was based on the content of the paragraph you didn't read. The people behind the two non hp films he's doing next year represent a quality in cinema that a lot of young actors can only dream of. I told you to read the imdb page, Sonja. Driving Lessons, Cherrybomb, and Wild Target all have big name successful actors, some have big directors, and all have renowned writers. That what I would call quality films. I haven't seen a good made for TV movie since the '60's' miniseries. I hope Rupert never does one. I hope Dan sticks to theater. He wows me there. Rupert gets reviews indicating his talent is "woefully underused". That's enough proof right there that he does quality work. And he's the only HP person with three films coming out in 2009. And after that, he'll have the same about of films as Dan. This is not a competition. I think they both are amazing young men to be sure. But I'm trying to prove that the anti-Rupert bias is unfounded and not based in any rational piece of opinion.Avatar Image says: Eruditewitch, funny, you seem to think that your opinion of what they should all do is something solid. It's not. And your dismissal of tv films is strange. Have you not seen Boy A, The Girl in the Cafe and the Elizabeth 2 parter that Mirren did? These are prime examples. You really should go back to the 60s and stay there if you can dismiss a whole medium so easily. And i'd love to see rupert move into tv, just to annoy your narrow mind.Avatar Image says: Eruditewitch, funny, you seem to think that your opinion of what they should all do is something solid.

And i'd love to see rupert move into tv, just to annoy your narrow mind.Avatar Image says: I'm talking about the miniseries entitled "The 60's". It had Julia Stiles. I can't really go back there, my mother was still a baby. I hated The Girl in the Cafe and the Elizabeth movie. I'm from America. I think the only good movies that are on TV are ones done by premium channels, but those aren't technically made for tv because they are subscription based. IE "Empire Falls" My opinion is solid, I back it up with rational explanations. Avatar Image says: I think that all mediums are promising. And chances are, Rupert may do a tv movie, because it seems to me (at least from my observation from the US), that in Britain, you can easily move from tv to movies and back without it having a stigma. Whereas, here in the US (again just from my observation, and I'm not trying to say it's fact), you are labeled as a movie actor, a tv actor, etc. Many times, tv actors "move up' to movies, ex. Micheal J. Fox, or film actors "move down" to tv, ex. Keifer Sutherland (which was a great move for him, right?) Movie actors might do a cable movie, or something special for tv (especially if say, Oprah produced it), but usually you stay in your place. (Unless you are Steve Carell....sp?) Anyway, back to the issue at hand. And sticking strictly to Rupert. You can dislike his looks, you can dislike his acting, but I never understood the need of some folks (cause it's always the same folks), to harp on him. Like, it's your mission or it's your job. I once read somewhere that someone got off on talking smack about him, cause they knew that it would upset his fans. What does that say about that person? They don't have anything else better to do. *sigh* I suppose, when news post here that I'm not interested in, I just don't open it. But, that's just me. But, like I said before. They are ALL doing good things. And as for Rupert, I DEFINITELY think he has a promising career ahead of him if he wants it. And to the Rupert fans, I suppose the bright side to all of the negativity is that you have to take the good with the bad, and it shows interest in him, even though it's negative interest....*shrugs* As for the naysayers (not the ones who just don't like him, but the ones who make it their mission to dog him at every turn, even when the news is good...) I honestly hope that he has a long career so that you can continue to have something to do.... :)Avatar Image says: And that entitles you to be snob, erudite? Perhaps you haven't realised that being an actor requires versatility, in acting and medium. Unless of course you think rupert would be arrogant enough to turn down a very good role just because it is for tv? Avatar Image says: And that entitles you to be snob, erudite?

Unless of course you think rupert would be arrogant enough to turn down a very good role just because it is for tv? Avatar Image says: Didn't you just read Ajwc1's post, Miriam, or are you still ignoring what posts actually say in order to stir up trouble? In America, it's a terrible thing for actors to be in a TV movie once they've done films. It does not help the career and they are never good. Avatar Image says: "Driving Lessons, Cherrybomb, and Wild Target all have big name successful actors, some have big directors, and all have renowned writers. That what I would call quality films." Well, Eruditewitch, a dozen of "quality" actors does not necessarily make a quality movie And you still haven´t anwersed my question: What if Rupert does a "low-quality" tv movie??? "And i’d love to see rupert move into tv, just to annoy your narrow mind." Miriam..well saidAvatar Image says: If Rupert does a bad movie, then my faith in him as an actor will be severely diminished. But considering he's not a bad actor and seems to make very wise choices...I strongly doubt that. good writers and good directors MAKE a quality film. Most of the time good actors do too. And Jim Nesbitt, Emily Blunt, and Bill Nighy are definitely top quality.Avatar Image says: "If Rupert does a bad movie, then my faith in him as an actor will be severely diminished." What a "lovely" fan you are...No you see a real fan sticks with their favourite actors/actress NO matter what happend.... You know what, I really really feel sorry for Rupert for having so called "fans" like you. I want to ask other Rupert fans: "will you dismise (spell??) him if his does a "low-quality" tv movie??? Avatar Image says: Now you're just being mean. I think Rupert is too good for a bad movie. Him doing a bad movie means he's not as good of an actor as I thought he was. A good fan encourages them to be great. If you were sticking with Rupert even if he was talented, then you are a fan for other reasons. I honestly think you are just here to start something. Avatar Image says: Edit: If you're sticking with Rupert even if he WASN'T talented, then you are a fan for other reasons and that's a bit shallow. Avatar Image says: I'm extremely disappointed with fans who has to bring up others into a topic that does not concern them. It's annoying that people fight over little things that may not be important in the next years to come. And, I'm extremely angry with people expressing bias opinions and predicting the future when they do not know it certainly. Avatar Image says: Eruditewitch, forgive me if i'm mistaken, but i was under the impression that rupert was a british actor? And your continued arrogance and dismissive nature astounds me. And dismissive you must be if you would lose respect for an actor for making a film etc that isn't 'quality'. And forgive me again, but didnt rupert appear in thunderpants? Or was that 'quality'? Avatar Image says: Eruditewitch, forgive me if i'm mistaken, but i was under the impression that rupert was a british actor? And your continued arrogance and dismissive nature astounds me.

Avatar Image says: he was a child. You get better with each film you do. It was a good film for a little kid. I know he's a British Actor, but I'm basing my opinion on TV movies on what I know and what is available to me. Out here, they are terrible. If they are good out there, that's great, and I bet they are of much better quality out there. If you need to understand how made for tv movies can ruin an actor's career, see Tom Cavanaugh. You're continuing to be mean and make things very personal when I've not done that to anyone. Do you do this because you're bored?Avatar Image says: I'm not being mean, i am pointing out your limitations. You have grouped tv drama all together and now you are backtracking and saying all your comments are from a US perspective. That renders your opinion of rupert doing them completely redundant as he would more likely, for now, to do british productions. So whatever you think he shouldn't do is not relevant. And no, thunderpants wasn't good in anyway. And no i am not bored, i just find your views narrow and unfair.Avatar Image says: I'm not being mean, i am pointing out your limitations.

Posted by Miriam on December 20, 2008, 10:45 AM * Well, I mentioned theater and I think it’s a fine medium. It seems to be where Dan really shines and I think that’s great. Personally, though, I think Rupert has made better career choices outside of HP than Dan or Emma. That’s just my personal opinion. *mollywobbles 23: Well, calling Thunderpants a "real quality" movie is like saying "Osama Bin Lady deserves the Nobel peace price" It´s funny about Thunderpants actually: That movie is….to be honest…the worst peace of crap ever made. but I really like Rupert´s performance, because it was so "Not-Ron". I haven´t seen Driving Lessons, so I can´t make jugdement about that Posted by Sonja on December 20, 2008, 03:11 AM* I never said it was quality. In fact I said “I don’t know if it is quality…I’ve never seen it.” But, an awful lot of A-list actors costarred with him in it, I know that much. You should rent Driving Lessons. It’s a great film. … Now, if Rupert did a BBC film, I’d give it a shot. Do I think it’d be a good step for his career? No. I think it’d be a step back. The only BBC film I’ve seen (admittedly, not many) that was any good was Britz. If he did something like that, I would be okay with it, quality and craft wise, just not career wise. I think we can all agree that the trio have made their choices and that we all have different opinions on them. I think Rupert is the best actor out of the three and I am so happy that he is definitely going to have a fantastic career in movies once HP is over, as long as that's what he wants. If he wanted to do theater, I would be very encouraged, though a bit sad that'd I'd never get to see him in it. As for tv movies, it's rare that they are of really good quality, even in the BBC. Ballet Shoes, while lovely, was not exactly my type of film; I was more interested in their "mother's" love life than the girls finding themselves. My Boy Jack was...a bit boring to be honest, though it had a couple of beautiful scenes that made it worthwhile. Avatar Image says: "I want to ask other Rupert fans: "will you dismise (spell) him if his does a "low-quality" tv movie?" ~Sonja I'll answer your question. I will always be interested in any projects Rupert does. I will not dispise him, because actors don't go into projects with the expectation that it's going to suck, unless, they are pressed for cash, they are contractually obligated, changes are made after production has begun (cast changes, script changes, directorial changes, financial changes, or if they are just beginning, and they have to start somewhere, etc. An actor hopes that, (low budget or not) their acting work will speak for itself. Let me ask me ask this question of you. If by some chance Rupert DOES do a tv movie (British tv movie) with actors such as, Maggie Smith, Emma Staunton, Helen Mirran (sp?), and he (according to the synopsis) is one of the leads, and you've not seen it, (sticking to your belief that tv movies *which is a perfectly respectable medium, which I do not find any issue at all with* is a good way to go career wise) will you find a way to comment that (for no other reason than Rupert is in it) that it's a crap project and that the only reason he's doing it is that he couldn't get a respectable job in a feature length film??? I ask this, cause that's what folks do, right? It was accidently said that DL was going to be on ITV (not being British, and not knowing the status of ITV), all I read was that ITV sucks and no good movie would be on ITV. RIGHT AFTER THAT, it was corrected that it was Dan's film (can't recall if it was DB, or MBJ) that was to be on ITV. THE SAME POSTER corrected their statement, saying that it was wonderful that Dan's movie was going to be on ITV, and when asked what all that crap was about when the poster thought it was Rupert's movie, they said out right that they only said that because it was Rupert's movie. This is the stuff I don't like. You can not be interested in the actor or their projects, that's fine. But, what kind of sense did that make??? Even for a person who's consistanly against Rupert, that can't possibly make any sense to you? As for EruditeWitch, I know that forbidden goodness of the Lifetime Movie Channel has does a lot for the way tv movies are viewed, but it's not all bad. Roots was a tv movie. I guess you can say (unless it's pay cable), that the glory is gone, but I think in Britain, it's much more respectable. However, what if in the future, Rupert does become a tv movie actor, in the States? I'd look at it this way, if Rupert were to become a tv movie, or a b-movie actor, I'd be reminded of what the actor who starred in Gremlin's said once. He may not be in big movies, but he's NEVER had to work a real job in his life. SO, while we are here debating the trio's career moves, often times while sitting looking for a break from our own "real jobs" , we can be rest assured that Rupert and co, will be off traveling, playing golf, going to fashion weeks, and really not giving that much of a rat's behind what we think. Rupert is going to be ok, and he WILL have the career he want's. :) Avatar Image says: I still don't consider rupert a good enough actor to make much of an impact, but that's my opinion. But it is one thing to discuss an actor and say you don't like them, it is something else to say a form of art is beneath them, as has been implied. Also, itv makes many prestigeous dramas, and britz was a channel 4 production not bbc. Maybe US dramas aren't very, but the quality of writing for tv series there is very high and often exceeds film. In the UK tv is just as acclaimed, if not more so, as film. Avatar Image says: "Let me ask me ask this question of you.

Avatar Image says: I find it very interesting that the people who are the most anti-Rupert are also the most pro-another actor (we all know who), and feel the need to cut down Rupert no matter what he does. Either he is too quiet and shy, doesn't dress like they think he should, or he dares to have to be Hermione's love interest (which of course means that Emma has to be pitied for having to come near him), or he acts in another movie (that is then immediately declared not worth seeing by the anti-Rupert brigade). He never says a bad word about his co-actors, but for some reason, fans of said co-actors seem to feel extremely threatened by any success Rupert dares to have. And then there are the ones who think no male red head could ever be attractive. Fans are strange creatures, but fortunately most of them eventually outgrow this kind of stuff in favor of RL and some maturity. Avatar Image says: @ Miriam Well, it played on BBC America here, so there's no way I could've known that. US dramas are great on premium channels like HBO or Showtime. It's very rare that a TV movie on one of the networks is more than mediocre, though, as they tend to be very melodramatic. There are few exceptions like Roots, The 60's, and...well, I can't really think of another one. Unless they're on a premium channel, TV movies here are considered a last resort for an actor whose career is floundering or never took off in the first place. Anyway, I think the whole argument here is a bit pointless. From your experience, TV movies are a great move, in ours it's not. It all comes down to different perspectives, just like we think Rupert is a great actor and some others don't (and seem to like to say so any freaking chance they get). Avatar Image says: Well, if I have something on my mind about the subject, then yes, I´ll comment it…. I'm here, I'm saying that I have nothing against tv movies...I think I answered your question. But, I feel like my question wasn't answered. Of course, if you have an opinion on a subject, you are more than free to comment. so, let me rephrase (incase it was just due to all of my rambling, which I am prone to do...) If Rupert were to do a tv movie, with all of these actors. Would you say (without having seen it), that they project was probably crap and that Rupert's only doing it because he couldn't get a feature length gig?Avatar Image says: "it is something else to say a form of art is beneath them, as has been implied. Also, itv makes many prestigeous dramas, and britz was a channel 4 production not bbc." ~Miriam But, that's exactly the type of stuff that some Rupert dislikers have done. And that's the kind of stuff that has burned me up. He get's a role in WT, "oh, it's probably small." He's in it with Bill Nighy, etc. "Who say's they are all that,,," I mean darn, it may not be for you (not you personally, but the general you..), but to find any and every reason to discredit it JUST because it's Rupert and not Dan or Emma is just,......why? That's my only beef. Avatar Image says: "it is something else to say a form of art is beneath them, as has been implied.

I hope that it doesn't show up 5 times...Avatar Image says: Ajwc1 - just because i don't like rupert's acting doesn't mean i dislike him. I find impossibly unengaging in interviews etc because he says anything and i don't particularly think him goodlooking (nothing to do with him being ginger, just look how gorgeous damien lewis is), but having these opinions doesn't mean i'm a hater. None of my posts have ridiculed rupert, and i dont think any fans do that much, i just had a problem with some views that were expressed. Also, in the UK we don't really have 'tv movies' we have single dramas, which was of the calibre i was referring to.

Avatar Image says: I'm American and it's true that doing TV films is kind of a stigma over here. However, we have to remember that it's different in the UK. The BBC version of David Copperfield that Dan was in had more name actors than most feature films are lucky enough to have, and that seems to be the case with many BBC productions. Wasn't Pride and Prejudice--the one with Colin Firth, which pretty much everybody cites as the best P&P--"just" a BBC miniseries? And does anybody honestly think that because Dan and Emma did My Boy Jack and Ballet Shoes, it means they couldn't get any "real" offers? While they still have HP, the trio are just doing what appeals to them because they don't need to worry about money or exposure. If Rupert were to do a TV film, I would be disappointed that it might not get him exposure, but I would still be interested and happy for him. And who's to say that CB and WT, just because they weren't made for TV, will be any better than a good TV film? Oh, and just so everyone knows, I am a huge Rupert fan--in fact, I'm obsessed with him, so of course I hope they will both be good and successful; I just think that we may be counting his chickens before they hatch. I'm really excited to get more Rupert material next year, and it's about freaking time. I just think that some of us, Rupert's fans or not, are getting carried away. Until we see Rupert's movies, all this means for now is that he was the one who had the time and inclination to take on more work during the break. If CB and WT are met with unexpected success and he is earth-shattering in them, then we'll talk. But for right now, there is no reason at all to fight about this because all it means is that Rupert's fans have more to look forward to in 2009, not that Rupert is doing better than anyone else or whatever these stupid fights are about. Avatar Image says: "all it means is that Rupert’s fans have more to look forward to in 2009, not that Rupert is doing better than anyone else or whatever these stupid fights are about." Agree 100%! I think part of the problem is that it's been said that Rupert would not be able to land any roles (for various reasons) and Rupert fans are happy to see the detractors proven wrong. Now we'll have to see how the movies will fare. Neither of the three are going to have an easy time separating themselves from their HP characters any time soon, and each one has a different way of going about it.Avatar Image says: *And does anybody honestly think that because Dan and Emma did My Boy Jack and Ballet Shoes, it means they couldn’t get any "real" offers? Posted by Steph on December 20, 2008, 07:18 PM * I don't. I'm sure they get plenty of offers. I just don't think their choices are as good as Rupert's have been. I mean, the only people who have seen Ballet Shoes or My Boy Jack are in the UK or sought it out online. Now that Ballet Shoes is on DVD, more will see it, but when it first came out, it didn't get much exposure at all. Rupert's movies are feature films and one of them, Wild Target, will have more exposure than December Boys and My Boy Jack combined, just for the sake of who is in it and who's distributing it and that it's a comedy caper. I do not look down upon Dan and Emma. I do wish that they would choose to do films that will give them a bit more exposure outside of HP. I would love to be able to see them in a film outside of HP on the big screen instead of on YouTube. Now, Emma's TOD has a lot of exposure, but it's just her voice, which isn't the same. :( Now, it seems that some anti-Rupert folks, do look down on him and for no reason that I can see. He gets the most abuse by fandom and so we fans of his who have witnessed a lot of it, tend to get a bit defensive. Basically, what I'm saying is that it seems that some people who don't like Rupert want him to fail. Most Rupert fans (I won't say all b/c I obviously don't know all of them lol), want Dan and Emma to succeed too, we just want Rupert to get as much credit for his work as they seem to from fandom and the media.Avatar Image says: Steph, I could hug you. You hit the nail on the wall. What you said was perfect!!! Right now they are ALL doing well!!! And the truth of the matter is, anyone of them will be extremely lucky to have another success as BIG as HP. Personally, I'd love for Rupert to do indie films and Britcoms!!! I'm happy with that. I'm not expecting a Will Smith...... I'm hoping for a Greg Kinnear... :)Avatar Image says: I think Dan's made great choices. Equus certainly got him enough publicity, way more than any film he or Emma or Rupert have done, not including HP. And I say this as someone who thinks Rupert's the best actor of the three. I think they've all made great choices. Dan obviously enjoys doing theatre and he's good at it; Rupert enjoys doing indie films and Emma... I don't know, she seems to enjoy fashion, so maybe a fashion model. But my point is, NONE of them is better than the other. They're all different and I find fans bickering over who's done what "better" to be ridiculous.Avatar Image says: "If Rupert were to do a tv movie, with all of these actors. Would you say (without having seen it), that they project was probably crap and that Rupert’s only doing it because he couldn’t get a feature length gig?" I´m sorry, by why are you asking ME that question??? i´M NOT the one who said "TV movies was crap".... Avatar Image says: I never said YOU said TV movies were crap.. However, the reason why I ASKED you that question, was because I wanted to know what YOU would say. You say that tv movie are respectable (and I DON'T disagree, I have no problem with tv movies.) But, I was asking if Rupert were to have done a tv movie, with respectable actors, without having seen the movie, would you automatically think the project was crap and that Rupert probably only did it because he couldn't get a feature length gig? No matter, you don't have to answer.... *shrugs*Avatar Image says: "They’re all different and I find fans bickering over who’s done what "better" to be ridiculous." ~Jennifer So true Jennifer. I love how they are different. That should be a good thing, because (as we can see) the fans are different. So, there's someone for everyone. Rupert speaks to some of us, Dan speaks to some of us and Emma speaks to some of us. In fact, I find it wonderfully interesting that these three thrown into a similar situation came out so perfectly different. Avatar Image says: mollywobbles: just for your information My boy Jack was shown on American TV earlier this year..I don´t remember what channel (I´m not american)...But I do recall that the numbers of wievers was pretty high..Besides it´s also avaible on DVD "Now, it seems that some anti-Rupert folks, do look down on him and for no reason that I can see" Can you please name just ONE here, who´s "looking down on him" Just because we´re some who don´t think "he´s the best looking guy or the best actor to walk this planet" doesn´t make us bashers Avatar Image says: "But, I was asking if Rupert were to have done a tv movie, with respectable actors, without having seen the movie, would you automatically think the project was crap and that Rupert probably only did it because he couldn’t get a feature length gig?"

I don´t make comments about movies I haven´t seenAvatar Image says: "Why on earth do you think I would automatically calling the project crap….???" ~Sonja I don't recall saying that you would. I was asking would you... "I don´t make comments about movies I haven´t seen" `Sonja And I'm taking this is your answer? Thank you... :) I don't know about in other States, but it was on public television where I live. Avatar Image says: My Boy Jack was on PBS *public television* On april 20th. It was okay, but I think if he was looking for exposure...pardon the pun...he didn't get that until Equus. TV movies in America are terrible and mean the demise of a career. If they are different in Britain...then good on anyone who does it. But if they did one in America, it wouldn't be very good. Emma has made choices that haven't really showcased her talents, so I'm not even sure if she's any good. Rupert's choices are Indie films with a wide distribution. Driving Lessons came to the theater in my town in the middle of the mountains. I think it was the best choice for his career...and he's doing that again considering his costars, the directors, and the distributers of his next two movies. Rupert doesn't have to be engaging in an interview to be a talented actor. And he's underused in HP. But if you watch Driving Lessons, you'll see he definitely has the chops. And exposing himself in these films will cement that. Unless they are crap. Put considering who wrote both of these scripts, it sure doesn't seem like they are crap. These are all rational opinions, I don't know why I'm getting so much heat for them. I think Rupert is the best actor out of the three, and that's not an uncommon stance.

Radcakesfan and other people I’ve encountered on other sites seem to love to trash Rupert for no reason whatsoever. I never said you were a basher…in fact I didn’t say “basher” at all. Why are you so defensive? I think I’ve been pretty level headed, but let me know if my posts come off a bit hostile because I don’t mean that for them. Avatar Image says: i wish all 3 actors & the rest of hp actors do good in whatever they decide to do.. whether its modeling or going to school, doing plays, or diff. type of movies.. I think Dan’s made great choices. Equus certainly got him enough publicity, way more than any film he or Emma or Rupert have done, not including HP. And I say this as someone who thinks Rupert’s the best actor of the three. Posted by Jennifer ^^^ naturally he was going to get big publicity for this whether he sucked on ice or not.. 1) because he was naked and 2) that was a big effort to step outside his hp role.. so either way he was going to get publicity for doing equus..and since this is a rupert post let me get abck to rupert... i hope he does well in al his films now & in the future. i'm expecting to see something in him that we have yet to seeAvatar Image says: T.V! Movies! A one hour special about the ozone layer! Who cares what Rupert decides to do as long as he is happy and doing what he loves! He is blessed with a strong support sysem from family, friends and fans so In the end it won't matter what your comments here say about him and his career. Rupert fans shouldn't waste their time arguing with 2-3 people when 2-3 million agree with us. :)Avatar Image says: Ummmm, Rupert doing a one hour special about the ozone layer... Me likey!!! Shoot, Rupert can instruct a tutorial about how to make a tuna fish sandwich and I'd be all over it.... He can read me the directions off of a shampoo bottle. Aww, heck, he can play the demented boyfriend in a Lifetime Movie Network movie,....well maybe not. Hehehehehe..... *guh* Avatar Image says: "Radcakesfan and other people I’ve encountered on other sites seem to love to trash Rupert for no reason whatsoever." I know that Radcakesfan can be a little "harsh" in her comments sometimes...But I´ve NEVER recalling her calling Rupert: "stupid, fat, ugly...or something like that"...just that she don´t like him as an actor or in interwievs, and that 2009 wouldn´t be "year of the Grint" for her...It wouldn´t for me neither "I never said you were a basher…in fact I didn’t say “basher” at all. Why are you so defensive?" Well, if I´m not a "basher" or a "hater" what am I then?...please don´t tell me that I´m "just expressin my opinion" Defensive...moi????...I think the most defensive people here are Rupert-fans who jumps on your throat just because you "dare" to critizise (spell) him just a tiny whiny little bit"...which I don´t recall I´ve been doing......Oh wait...maybe I have. I´ve said that I don´t think he´s the best looking guy or the best actor in the worldAvatar Image says: To me, you're just someone who doesn't like Rupert. Oh, and maybe I was wrong about radcakesfan. Maybe they just like to bash Rupert's fans with no provocation. I've seen them start bashing us before there were even two comments on a news post. It's really kind of ridiculous and much worse than bashing Rupert. I have said positive things about Dan and Emma alongside my saying that I think Rupert is a great actor. You keep telling us what you DON'T think about Rupert, i.e. that he's not the best looking guy or the best actor. What DO you actually think about him? Or are you just here to tell us what WE think about him and why? Why don't we take turns? I'll go first: I think Rupert is very down to earth and a little shy. I do think he's very good looking. I think he's a very natural actor and that after HP he'll have a long and successful career. I think his choices now will help him get there moreso than Dan or Emma's, but I even think they will have great careers. I don't think Rupert gets enough credit and I think that by doing the types of films he's been doing outside of HP, that one day he will and I can't wait for that day. Excuse me for being a fan of an actor. I didn't know it was the end of the world. It's not the fact that you guys don't think Rupert's the best. It's the fact that you (in general) feel the need to get all up in arms whenever we talk about Rupert making good choices and doing really well outside of HP as though...I don't know what. I really don't understand what's going on here and how it all blew up. I guess I just don't see the point of coming in and trying to burst people's bubbles.Avatar Image says: Okay,,molly, you want to know what I DO think about Rupert; He´s an ok actor, not the best, he comes across as a nice person, but extremly dull in interwievs... well I´m a fan of an actor as well, and his name is Daniel Radcliffe - been a fan for 6 years. I´m not going to make a longer comment. I think we both have said what´s on our minds in this case, and I don´t think we´ll ever reach an total agreement...Avatar Image says: That was an intense fight. Avatar Image says: God, some people here really need to GROW UP!!! Avatar Image says: "T.V! Movies! A one hour special about the ozone layer! Who cares what Rupert decides to do as long as he is happy and doing what he loves! He is blessed with a strong support sysem from family, friends and fans so In the end it won’t matter what your comments here say about him and his career. Rupert fans shouldn’t waste their time arguing with 2-3 people when 2-3 million agree with us. :)" I agree 100% with this. Rupert's critically acclaimed, he's popular, and he's happy... that should be enough for us. (In fact, even if he weren't so popular it'd still be enough IMO.) I know it's hard not to argue when some of the comments (especially the unprovoked ones) are so ridiculous and I've been guilty of doing that myself, but I think the best thing is to ignore the usual suspects and keep making the kind of posts that SHOULD be under news items like this. And if mere praise of Rupert brings them out of the woodwork (as it has so many times before) then just leave them to talk to themselves. It'll have the added bonus of making them look silly. :PAvatar Image says: Yes Alice, lets.... *clears throat* I can watch 5 good minutes of Rupert as Malachy with those headphones on. He don't have to say a word..... *yup*Avatar Image says: Sonja wrote: "Okay,,molly, you want to know what I DO think about Rupert; He´s an ok actor, not the best, he comes across as a nice person, but extremly dull in interwievs… well I´m a fan of an actor as well, and his name is Daniel Radcliffe – been a fan for 6 years. I´m not going to make a longer comment. I think we both have said what´s on our minds in this case, and I don´t think we´ll ever reach an total agreement…" Sonja, this is exactly the point a lot of us are trying to make here. If you don't think Rupert's particularly good-looking, don't think he's that great of an actor, and don't like his interviews, why are you bothering to waste YOUR OWN TIME commenting on a Rupert film? It's great that you love Dan. I think Dan's a great actor and will have a fabulous career after HP, but don't go for his looks so much, but I don't go on the Leaky comments about Dan and say that. If I do, I just say that I thought he did an excellent job and just leave it at that. If you don't like Rupert, the only reason I can see for you and some of the others to make unsupportive comments about him is to stir up trouble. You might say, well, I can comment here if I want, and of course you can. But I always viewed Leaky giving people the opportunity to make comments as a way for them to provide *constructive* comments, not just to come in and say stuff that's pretty irrelevant. Having said that, I do have to agree with EruditeWitch that US TV movies are crap, and someone's career is probably circling the toilet if they're in one. They're always sappy stuff around the holidays, or about some family crisis that has some kind of moral at the end and everyone hugs. Blech. The only ones that are decent are either on HBO or are imported from the UK and shown on PBS. My Boy Jack was one of those. I actually saw it when it aired and thought Dan did a fine job in it.Avatar Image says: I have really NO idea why people are jumping on my throat anyway....My very first comment was just a list over the quality movies that..IMO..Rupert had done, alongside with Dan and Emma...I have NO idea why that was such a bad comment...maybe because I mentioned Dan and Emma as well....I don´t know... As for posting over and over again.....well it´s not against the law to write a comment, when yoiu got something on your mind, wether people agree with me or not. Besides mollywobbles23 was asking me the same question over and over again - I still can´t figure WHY excatly she asked me that particular question; something like "would I made a comment about Rupert being in a TV-movie" even if I haven´t seen the it....Molly if you read this - I´m NOT the one who said TV movies was crap - Eruditewitch did - so why not ask her the same questionAvatar Image says: @ Sonja, I didn't ask you that question. All I asked you was what you did think about Rupert as you were only telling us what you didn't think of him.Avatar Image says: Correction Sonja, That wasn't Molly, that was me.... *shrugs* And as I said before, it wasn't the focus of tv movies in general that prompted me to ask the question.... And I do believe I only asked you twice (when you didn't answer the first time...) But, oh thee well....moving right along. I just didn't want Molly to get it for something that she didn't say... Before you try to rip someone a new one, make sure you know who made the comment in the first place. :D But as Jennifer, and others have said before....focus on the good things. ;) I'm in a party mood now, so....*ummm* I would love to see Rupert in a movie with Toni Colette (who is doing a cable tv show now, btw) I would like to see Rupert as a character in a John Waters film. Except for the long distribution times, I would love to see Rupert do indie films. When I first saw the quiff over the summer, I was not feeling the do, but now just adore it. He is working it and that sweater. I have a feeling that he's going to wear the sweater alot (based on set spoilers and whatnot.) It really helps to create a character for me. It's just so Ducky Dale (who is my FAVORITE movie character...) Gosh I want some Tony (WT) pics now!!!! Looking forward to Rupert in HBP and DH.... Oh I can go on.... Avatar Image says: AJWC1: There's a place you need to go on livejournal if you can handle it! Send me a PM on leaky and I'll give you the information (it's a tight lipped little bit of fun). Alice said: *I agree 100% with this. Rupert’s critically acclaimed, he’s popular, and he’s happy… that should be enough for us. (In fact, even if he weren’t so popular it’d still be enough IMO.)* Yes, he is critically acclaimed. So we're the ones who can bask in that and look forward to much more from Rupert! Who cares what some random little girls think about him? The people who matter love him. Here's an excerpt from a book: *"Actor Rupert Grint plays Weasley to perfection. By terms self-effacing, increduance brings Ron Weasley from page to film screen with astonishing fidelity. Unaffected, unabashedly normal in every way, with the right touch of regret at having been born in a poor wizarding family, Grint as Weasley is picture perfect. He is my favorite among all the child actors in the other films. In short, bloody brilliant." Page 152 in Muggles and Magic: An Unofficial Guide to J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter Phenomenon by George W. Beahm and Tim Kirk (Paperback - April 11, 2007)* thanks to ICM for that. Avatar Image says: There's something about a British guy in a cardigan that just does it for me. lol I can't wait until February when it plays at the Berlin festival. Jo from ICM is going to be able to go and see it! It'd be cool if she got to interview Rupert too. I think she's interviewed him before. I just want a trailer, but we probably won't get one until it gets a distributor, which hopefully will happen at the Berlin festival. It will probably play the festival circuit for a bit to build up buzz. Hopefully when it comes to the US, it will be released nationwide on one date, instead of nationwide on different dates like Driving Lessons did. I wasn't able to see it on the big screen because it was two hours away and the date changed to a time when I was just too busy to go anywhere. Oh! And I've just remembered that Rupert will have an Irish (Belfast specific) accent in this! I can't wait to hear it. I won't be able to tell how accurate it is, though. I hope it past the test for those in the UK. Avatar Image says: "AJWC1: There’s a place you need to go on livejournal if you can handle it! Send me a PM on leaky and I’ll give you the information (it’s a tight lipped little bit of fun). " ~EruditeWitch You know, I don't have any Leaky accounts, I just comment in the news. But, I do have an ICM forum account under AJ, if you have one. But, if you go to that site, you'd know that I'm a squeemish little thing. So, IDK if I can handle it.. Hehehehe... "I just want a trailer, but we probably won’t get one until it gets a distributor, which hopefully will happen at the Berlin festival. It will probably play the festival circuit for a bit to build up buzz." ~Molly Well, I suggest you go to the CB imdb comments, you'll find some interesting info there... "Oh! And I’ve just remembered that Rupert will have an Irish (Belfast specific) accent in this!" ~Molly We'll, from what I've heard from spoilers from an extra, a set visitor, a new crew, and a crew person. I've heard a range from not bad, but not great (but the same person ammended what they said to it was pretty good), to great (and even in mannerisms, IDK what that means really), to pretty good. So on average (from the folks who have heard it who are from NI and who have made comments in random areas), he's either very good, or at least he doesn't necessarily suck... and some of these comments weren't solicited, so with the exception of the tv crew, it's not like they had to say he was good. But, at least by February, we'll find out. I'm sure someone from NI will be able to spot any errors, but I just hope I wouldn't be able to tell if I didn't know he was from England. I saw DL at Tribeca when Rupert was there, it was great fun, and the one we saw wasn't altered like the one that was released in the US later. (In fact, I'm convinced there were some slight changes even in the one that was released in the UK.) I kinda like this time before the movie has come out, because we've been speculating like crazy about what's gonna happen to who and how. It's like playing Clue... :) Avatar Image says: My ICM account doesn't work anymore because I haven't been on since before the site was hacked. But if you have a livejournal, find me on there... Although if you're squeamish, there's probably a reason why you're not part of our LJ community.Avatar Image says: According to Manonse (I guess they're on imdb and were an extra or something?) I don't know...someone posted this on the R&E forum as what they said: "Ok folks, just a few things about Cherrybomb. Its more or less completed post production, they are just adding a few more bits of music and score to it. I spoke to the Producer last week and he is very happy with it. I did see a very skectchy cut of it a few months ago and it does look good. Goin to be a lot of fun. I think it will be shown at the Berlin film festival around Feb 2009 and hopefully general release after that. I had no idea that Rupert had such a big fan base. I knew he was well liked, but you guys are mad over him. I bet you lot would love some of the stuff he signed for me. We still keep in touch and hopefully we will be meeting after xmas for a bit of a chat and a pint. So anyway keep your eyes peeled after xmas, there might just be a cherrybomb trailer out soon. Spread the word! " Oh please let us get a trailer after Christmas! Please, please, please!!!Avatar Image says: That was what I was refering to Molly. He was a crew member, from what he's said previously. And he provided pictorial proof during the summer. Avatar Image says: I can't believe people bother commenting if they are going to be negative! I have never ever gone to any site to give negative feedback on another actor, if you don't like it, ignore it! As for Cherrybomb, can't bloody wait!!! Sure we can't tempt you to join the LJ AJ? :) Avatar Image says: You KNOW I can't keep up with YOU, Karin!!!! Avatar Image says: Wow, Rupert Grint has turned into quite a hansome young manAvatar Image says: Since I saw Driving Lesson, I`m completly crazy about this guy. So talented, so sweet, sooooo hot. I can´t wait...Avatar Image says: Karin: actually there's only 2 people. and they don't bother to look up what others said so they can comment/ said more nagative things. they (or the same person) must be boring. Avatar Image says: Who cares what it's like in the States re Film versus TV/Theatre etc? These are UK actors we're talking about! Why do you all assume Rupert (and the others) are itching to pack their bags for LA?! Many of our best actors are UK based. Rupert has potential to forge a decent and varied career, yes, but no more than the other two. Film will not guarantee it for him, as a UK actor. It's Theatre and TV that forge reputations over here. Films get seen by noone unless they happen to be chosen for a 'premiere' on TV, which, btw, was how Driving Lessons got seen by many of us! And Steph earlier was right; TV 'miniseries' and Theatre feature our top actors all the time. People like Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Michael Gambon, Richard Griffiths, Robbie Coltrane. I think you may have heard of a few of them?? All have done TV 'miniseries' at the height of their careers and still do. Maggie Smith in 'David Copperfield' (alongside a young DanRad). Robbie Coltrane's 'Cracker' was his masterpiece, Judi Dench and Michael Gambon recently in 'Cranford', the best miniseries of last year. They also do Theatre regularly, more often than you would imagine: the first four and Ralph Fiennes, David Bradley (Filch), Ken Brannagh have all been on stage at least once in the last year. I saw Gambon and Bradley in a play only last week. @EruditeWitch, who said: "My Boy Jack was... okay, but I think if he was looking for exposure…he didn’t get that until Equus". 1. My Boy Jack came after Equus. In the UK it had close to soap opera viewing figures. 2. Dan isn't looking for exposure; he's looking for a varied career and is going a great way to achieving it, besides generating a great deal of respect. And incidentally going across to the US does not make anyone better than those who stay in the UK. Quite the opposite in some cases, (just look at Colin Firth, brilliant in BBCs miniseries Pride & Prejudice but now doomed to rubbishy romcoms!)
