Rupert Grint is considering a stage debut in a gritty play about gangland murder.

The 24-year-old actor - who starred as Ron Weasley alongside Daniel Radcliffe, 23, and Emma Watson, 23, in eight Harry Potter films - has reportedly performed in a workshop for Jez Butterworth's 'Mojo', reports the Daily Mail newspaper.

Grint attended the play reading held by Ian Rickson - who directed the original 1995 Royal Court production - with a cast that included 35-year-old actor, Daniel Mays and Robert Sheehan, 25, of the E4 drama 'Misfits'.

The gritty drama is set in Soho, London, in 1958 and focuses on a handsome rock star who gets caught in dodgy dealings involving a gangster, a club owner and band manager.

While Grint's representatives are yet to confirm the reports, he is seemingly following in his 'Harry Potter' co-star Daniel's footsteps as Radcliffe appeared in the controversial 'Equus' in 2007, in which he stripped of naked.

Daniel went on to star in a new Broadway production of 'How to Succeed in Business' in 2011 and can currently be seen in West End play 'The Cripple of Inishmaan'.
