Rupert Grint has set in sights on a role in 'EastEnders', and he hopes his character would "cause a bit of trouble" in the BBC One soap
Rupert Grint wants to star in 'EastEnders'.
The 'Harry Potter' actor - who portrayed Ron Weasley in the wizard film franchise - has set his sights on a role in the BBC One Soap, and admits he would love his alter-ego to cause some mischief in Albert Square.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I love 'EastEnders'. I'd definitely like to walk into the Queen Vic, maybe cause a bit of trouble."
While the 24-year-old star has appeared in several projects - including World War II movie 'Into the White' and lending his voice to an episode of 'American Dad!' - since the 'Harry Potter' franchise ended, the flame-haired star admits he is currently at a "weird" stage of his career.
He added: "It's such a weird time. I'm kind of looking at lots of options."
But before he can make the move to London's East End, Rupert will travel to the fictional town of Pencaster to star in animated film 'Postman Pat: The Movie -- You Know You're the One', in which he will play boy band star Josh alongside Stephen Mangan, who is to voice the titular character.
