Fans of Harry Potter and The Hangover may be shocked to see some of their favorite actors in their new roles.
In the new rock drama CBGB, which will be a look at the famed New York City nightclub and the punk-rock scene it helped make famous, fans will get an entirely new look at some of their favorite actors, including Harry Potter's own Rupert Grint, also known as Ron Weasley in the franchise.
A new raunchy clip from the film was released showing Grint appearing alongside The Hangover's Justin Bartha as part of the volatile punk act The Dead Boys, who were known for their explicit shows, according to sugarscape.com. Grint is set to play lead guitarist Cheetah Chrome while Bartha portrays vocalist Stiv Bators.
In the clip, a female fan rips off Grint's shirt, sprays whipped cream on her chest and proceeds to seduce Bartha's character while he sings on stage. When a news cameraman comes over to film, Grint's character says, "See! It's not all about violence!"
Others in the ensemble cast include Malin Akerman (27 Dresses, Trophy Wife) as Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry, Stana Katic (Castle) as Genya Ravan, Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory) as record executive Terry Ork, Alan Rickman (Harry Potter) as club owner Hilly Kristal, and Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy, Grounded for Life) as Kristal's right-hand man, Merv Ferguson.
The film follows the story of the venue as it moved from a club for Country, Bluegrass and Blues (hence the initials CBGB), to the punk-rock club it ultimately became.
CBGB arrives in select theaters Oct. 11.
