By Xingye Li,

Former stars from the Harry Potter series are all seeking new images. While Daniel Radcliffe wowed everyone in Sundance with his man-on-man sex scenes in Kill Your Darlings, Ruper Grint also surprised Sundance with his role as an aspiring porn star in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.

The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, starring Rupert Grint, Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood and James Buckley, premiered at Sundance on Wednesday. The story is set in Romania and Grint plays a supporting role, a wannabe porn star named Boris Pecker.

After 10 years of playing Ron Weasley in Harry Potter, it's not a surprise to hear director Fredrik Bond saying, “He’s dying to be doing different stuff outside of the series and be acknowledged for it. He’s an incredible actor. And it’s so different from what he’s done before,” reported USA Today.

However, the critics are not in love with the movie or Grint. Guardian says about Grint’s performance, “there is still not much distinguishing him from Ron Weasley.

Hitfix comments, “Add in Rupert Grint and James Buckly as two British travelers Charlie meets in a hostel and you've got some random comic relief that you swear you've seen in 10 other films.”
