Daniel Radcliffe's new long hair hangs out with Rupert Grint

One may say the fan-anticipated Marauders prequel isn’t happening, but clearly Daniel Radcliffe-by-way-of-early-Sirius-Black didn’t get the message and is moving forward with his audition for the young Mr. Black. Note: Radcliffe’s hair isn’t brand new; He explained the Frankenstein-mandatory look (it’s a weave) during a recent appearance on the Graham Norton Show. READ FULL STORY

Rupert Grint's rejected 'Super Clyde' is now online: Wish CBS had picked up this pilot?

Here’s why CBS ultimately rejected the high-concept comedy Super Clyde, according to EW’s own James Hibberd: It “was deemed off-brand for the network and the net’s other comedies came in strong. Plus, successful comedy blocks are about creating flow, and there was also nothing compatible that CBS had to pair it with.”

That reasoning is understandable, if disappointing for fans of ex-Harry Potter star Rupert Grint. But after watching the pilot for Super Clyde — available now on CBS.com — I can’t help but wish I had a time-turner, which I’d use to travel back and urge the network to change its mind.

Producers announced Friday that Grint, who was ginger-haired wizard Ron Weasley in the Potter films, will play a pill-popping gangster in a West End revival of Jez Butterworth’s Mojo later this year. READ FULL STORY

Hogwarts Alumni Newsletter: Emma Watson to star in another franchise, plus Tom Felton!

It’s summer, O.W.L.s have been taken and we’re all itching to get back to the castle, which means it’s time for another update to Hogwarts’ Alumni Newsletter.

Last time around when we caught up with the gang, we were excited that Daniel Radcliffe was set to star in a version of Frankenstein as the hunchbacked assistant Igor. This week, a bunch of new projects have been announced that have us thrilled for Hogwarts’ former (and current) favorite sons and daughters. I won’t rehash previously announced work, just the things they’ve added to their growing résumés recently. Read on to find out why it’s possible Emma Watson will be known for a different franchise come 2015. I mean, not really: She’ll clearly always be Hermione Granger. But she’s got another potential big movie happening too! Good things all around!

Hogwarts Alumni Newsletter: What's new for the 'Harry Potter' kids

What’s even more exciting than discovering a new secret passageway on the Marauder’s Map?

Trick question. Nothing is more thrilling than discovering a new way out of the castle. But the past couple of weeks have been pretty great for Harry Potter fans. J. K. Rowling still hasn’t announced she’s writing a prequel (dream big!), but there was a new book cover for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone released, providing readers the perfect excuse to re-read the entire series. And for those who were hopeful the whole gang would find life outside the castle walls, there are a lot of promising developments. Let’s break down the current goings-on of Hogwarts’ favorite class.

Most Likely To Succeed: Daniel Radcliffe
News broke yesterday that the actor is about to sign a deal to star in a Frankenstein film as the hunchbacked assistant Igor.  This isn’t the only bit of creepy casting news for the former Quidditch star. He’s been filming Horns, where he’ll have actual horns growing out of his head. This is all in addition to Kill Your Darlings, which premiered at Sundance last month. Happily, Hogwarts’ favorite son doesn’t seem to be in any danger of awkwardly returning to the famed school, 10 years too late.

+100 points to Gryffindor for picking varied, interesting projects; -20 for consistently signing up for parts that demand he make his fans watch him be a creep. READ FULL STORY

Rupert Grint carries Olympic Torch. We pretend it's a Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter star Rupert Grint carried the Olympic torch for a leg through northwest London today.

The AP reports that  23-year-old Grint started his turn at Middlesex University and was mobbed as he finished his run.

“I don’t usually run for anything, but it was all downhill so I was OK,” he said. “It was all a bit of a blur. I’m just so proud to be a part of it.”

Doesn’t run? Clearly Grint has never watched the Potter films since starring in them, which have him running from a dragon, spiders, and Nagini, just to name a few.

With any luck, this is only the beginning of the Harry Potter-related Olympic fun. If the rumors are true, Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony will feature Lord Voldemort battling Mary Poppins.

Mischief officially managed, London.
