I loved the Harry Potter series. I read all seven books twice, and I've seen all the movies (except part two of Deathly Hallows) more than once. I wouldn't call myself an extreme fanatic, but I was and am still a fan.
I haven't made a concerted effort to keep up with J.K. Rowling and the three main actors, but I read a lot of articles, and lately there have been many separate articles about what they're doing now.
So, I thought, "What the hell? Might as well put all of what I've learned from different articles into one article here at Reader's Den."
J.K. Rowling is more than just Harry Potter. She could have easily decided to live off of the fame and success of the Harry Potter series and stop writing, but instead she wrote a completely different book in a completely different genre. It's called "The Casual Vacancy" and it's an adult book that will involve black comedy, rivalries, and lots of 'wars' between the townspeople in the small English town.
The 480-page novel will be released worldwide as an ebook, audio download and hardback book on September 27, 2012. Concerning the release date, I think it's best to qoute Tee Tate, creator of LitStack.
"Dear Everyone who is launching a book this September. Sorry! Mrs. Rowling will out sell you."

The web can't seem to get enough of Emma Watson's temporary tramp stamp and skimpy clothing. I understand! It's hard not to think about how the cute, intelligent Hermione (hell, Emma Watson herself) would never be caught alive in an outfit like that.
I know for certain that I will definitely watch this movie when it comes out. I admire that Emma is not allowing herself to be typecast by trying a completely different role.
In fact, that's what I admire most about what J.K. Rowling, Daniel, Emma, and Rupert are doing post-Harry Potter. So far, none of them are afraid to try new things.
That's the first thing that came to my mind when I started his part of the article. I had the most unfathomable crush on him for about two or three of my pre-teen years, so it's pretty sad that, of all the Harry Potter actors, I had no idea what he was doing up to until now.
I'm constantly hearing about J.K. Rowling, Emma Watson, and Daniel Radcliffe, but I haven't really heard much about Rupert Grint (beside the fact that he and Daniel aren't close friends like Daniel and Emma Watson are). Still, I know he has to be doing something...
...So I went over to RupertGrint.net and learned a couple of cool things. In March 2012, Rupert Grint starred in "Into the White," a movie about an unlikely friendship that grew between a German and English pilot when they were forced to survive a tough winter in the Norwegian wilderness together. I wondered, "How did I miss that?" It's understandable, though, since the movie was released in Norway.
