Rupert Grint Is A 'Wild Target' As This Week's Hump Day Hottie

Rupert Grint, the ginger-haired star of the "Harry Potter" franchise, won our hearts as Ron Weasley, but really, he's so much more than just a teen witch. He's managed to sneak in all sorts of projects while still maintaining his blockbuster star status in the "Harry Potter" flicks. So before "Potter" madness really takes over the world, we're naming him this week's Hump Day Hottie.

Press play on the video below to see more of Rupert, and then keep reading for more details about him!


Vital stats: The 22-year-old Brit got his start on the stage and had never appeared on camera before "Harry Potter." He grew up in the magical-sounding land of Hertfordshire and comes from a rather large family: He's got one brother and three sisters. He's the oldest.

Where you might have already seen him: He's probably best known for his work in the "Harry Potter" movies, but he's managed to pepper in a number of other projects since the first film hit theaters in 2001. His other credits include parts in "Thunderpants," "Driving Lessons" and "Cherry Bomb."

Why you should take notice of him now: Well, he's got the first half of the final "Harry Potter" flick, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," hitting theaters this November. But this week, fans can check him out in his Emily Blunt co-starring film, "Wild Target," about a hitman who gets called back into the game thanks to a beautiful thief. Also, he's got the second "Deathly Hallows" out next year, as well as "Eddie The Eagle."

Until next week, when we chose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Rupert by pressing play on the video above!
