Rupert Grint will make his Broadway debut this autumn.

The Harry Potter star will take on a role in Terrence McNally's It's Only A Play.

He joins Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally and Nathan Lane in the comedy about the opening night of a play.

Grint will play Frank Finger, a successful young director of a new play written by an anxious writer (Broderick). They are waiting alongside the play's cast for their opening night reviews.

It's Only A Play is opening on October 9 at the Schoenfeld Theatre and will run for 17 weeks.
