It seems like Rupert Grint could really use a boner killer.
No, the erstwhile boy wizard isn’t in a sticky situation with Hermione; a new role has found Grint in quite a different setting: A scummy Romanian hotel room.
In an exclusive clip from “Charlie Countryman,” Grint’s character, Karl, is feeling decidedly less than well after taking “five…six…” Romanian Viagras, while Shia LaBeouf’s character, the titular Charlie Countryman, has problems of his own — namely, that he’s been recently hit by a car. They’re hard problems to fix, ones that just won’t go away, if you know what we mean. The duo, alongside James Buckley’s Luc, brainstorm how to get their situation on the up-and-up in the clip below.
This surely isn’t the only eyebrow-raising moment in “Charlie Countryman,” which follows the adventures of a young man (LaBeouf) who travels to Eastern Europe to fulfill his mother’s dying wish. Once there, he falls in love with a Romanian girl, Gabi (Wood). There are just a few little problems in what could otherwise be a lovely Romanian romance: Charlie happened to sit next to Gabi’s father on the flight over — before the man died mid-flight — and Gabi happens to be married to a psychotic drug dealer (Mads Mikkelsen). Oops.
And, hey, any movie that necessitated that its star drop acid in the name of research is worth looking into, right?
“Charlie Countryman” hits theaters in a limited release on November 15.
