Tom Felton isn't the only "Harry Potter" alum to score a new gig today.
Rupert Grint, who until now has kind of been sitting on the bench as Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have been shaping their post-"Potter" careers, has joined the cast of "The Drummer," according to Variety.
"Hugo" star Chloe Moretz has also signed on for the film that chronicles the last six years of Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson's life, during which he released his solo album, "Pacific Ocean Blue," and struggled with alcohol addiction. Wilson drowned in Marina del Rey after a day of drinking shortly after his 39th birthday in December 1983.
Grint will play the role of Stan Shapiro, a mailroom intern at William Morris who befriended Wilson, and Moretz will play Jennifer, Wilson's daughter with Carole Freedman. The duo join Aaron Eckhart as Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Christina McVie, the Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter with whom Wilson had a passionate affair.
Rupert Grint is currently attached to the role of Eddie Edwards in "Eddie the Eagle," the story of England's first ski jumper to enter the Winter Olympics, and to the horror thriller, "Cross Country." Chloe Moretz will next be seen in "Hick" and Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows," both opening May 11.
"The Drummer" will commence with production on June 15 under the direction of Randall Miller ("Nobel Son"). The film is being produced by two of Dennis Wilson's children, Carl (one of his sons with Barbara Charren) and the real-life Jennifer.
