Rupert Grint - Rupert Grint to star on Broadway

Rupert Grint will star on Broadway later this year.

The 25-year-old actor has joined the cast of 'It's Only A Play' - which will officially open in New York's theatre district in October this year - along with previously announced members Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, F. Murray Abraham, Stockard Channing, Megan Mullally and Micah Stock.

The 'Harry Potter' star made his professional stage debut last year in 'Mojo' in London's West End and is now set to make his Broadway debut at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in New York.

Rupert - who will play an acclaimed film director named Frank Finger - previously admitted that working in the West End had inspired him to pursue more theatre work.

He said: ''It's opened my eyes; I've learned so much.''

Rupert also shows off his singing talent in the new animation 'Postman Pat: The Movie' - in which he plays the titular character's talent show rival.

He explained to Dev on Radio 1: ''I was surprised, I thought it would be a laugh, I didn't take it too seriously but it came out alright, I was quite surprised when I heard it.''
