Rupert Grint, best known as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, is headed to television in a very different kind of role.

Grint has signed on to the Snatch TV series, airing on Crackle and based on the 2000 film by Guy Ritchie, per Coming Soon. The 27-year-old will play Charlie Cavendish on the series, as well as serve as an executive producer.

Production on the Snatch series begins next week in Manchester. Crackle will air 10 one-hour episodes from the first season in 2017.

Grint recently starred alongside Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane in It’s Only a Play on Broadway. He last played Ron Weasley in 2011, but recently met up with the latest actor to portray Harry Potter’s BFF.
