The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman Featured in Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly shared a new picture of actor Shia LaBeouf (no Rupert yet) from The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.

EW also shared some small insight into Rupert's role:

Wood said Rupert Grint’s part in the film helps the actor shed his Harry Potter stigma and added a lightness to the dark movie. “Rupert Grint is amazing in this film. It was such a brilliant idea to cast him. It’s hilarious."
