The Sun quotes one Martin Scorsese as being a fan of Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame: “I would be very interested in working with him. I would have no issues in casting him as a gangster. He is a very talented young man.”
This is meaninglessness incarnate, but let me be the first to start the fake rumor: Scorsese directing Rolling Stones bio with Rupert Grint as Mick Jagger.
Right? Am I the only one who thinks the kid could pull it off with some hair dye?
[Update 7/6: Scorsese denies having so much as seen a Harry Potter movie. Turns out you shouldn’t even use a UK tabloid report as a springboard for comedy material.]
