Cast of 'It's Only a Play' Praise Rupert Grint's Stage Chops

At yesterday's press day for 'It's Only a Play' - which has reached $8 million in ticket sales, by the way - Vanity Fair asked some of Rupert's costars to share their first impressions of his "stage chops."

Megan Mullally admitted she had never seen the "Harry Potter" movies and shared her story about their first meeting:

“…he was an absolute basket case for the first week or so. The first night when I met him, there was a little dinner, and he was standing outside, smoking a cigarette, and I was, like, ‘Are you Rupert?’ And he said he was, and he just instantly announced that he was terrified. I said, ‘Oh, you’re going to be great.’ He said, ‘I’m so intimidated.’ I said, ‘No, no. We should be intimidated with you.’” Mullally is pretty impressed with his work, so far. “I think he’s fantastic. I think he’s going to be great in this; he’s really good. Those goddamn Brits!”

Matthew Broderick added, "to see a young fellow get his first Broadway shot is just kind of a pleasure to watch."

Check out the rest of the article at this link. It includes additional quotes from Rupert, Nathan Lane, and reveals how Rupert was approached for the role.

ICYMI: Broadway.com also interviewed Rupert yesterday. Go Yankees!

As seen above, the cast of 'It's Only a Play' reenacted Ellen's Oscar selfie for Entertainment Weekly.
