Servant is an AppleTV+ original series that follows a Philadelphia couple who experience a tragic loss. Dorothy (Lauren Ambrose) isn’t able to cope with the loss, so retreats to a fantasy. Her husband Sean (Toby Kebbell) indulges this fantasy until they hire a new nanny. The nanny isn’t as she appears and makes the fantasy start to become a reality.
Rupert Grint plays Dorothy’s younger brother Julian. He’s a dubious character who may not have his life fully figured out, but he has a deep love and devotion to his sister that seems to be a source of some of his bad decisions. Servant is one of AppleTV+’s best shows. The writing is strong but the acting from the four main leads is what takes it to another level of entertainment.

CBGB is a 2013 drama about the formation and rise of the New York music venue CBGB (Country, Bluegrass, and Blues). The club had a big influence on the growth of the underground punk and rock scenes. CBGB stars Alan Rickman, Ashley Greene, Malin Akerman, Ryan Hurst, and Donal Logue.
Rupert Grint plays Cheetah Chrome, the guitarist for the punk rock band Dead Boys. The Dead Boys are regulars at CBGB, so Kristal (Rickman) decides to try to manage them. CBGB is one of Grint’s first post-Harry Potter roles. It’s quite different from Ron but Grint plays this character well. He’s the right mixture of weird and fun.
Sick Note (Netflix)
Rupert Grint along with Nick Frost was the lead of Sick Note Series 1 and 2. The show follows Daniel, a young man misdiagnosed with terminal cancer. Because Daniel enjoys the perks and kind treatment since his misdiagnoses, he decides to not tell people the truth about the misdiagnoses. Daniel teams up with the doctor who misdiagnosed him, Dr. lain Glennis (Nick Frost) to keep the lie a secret.
Things are complicated even more when Daniel becomes involved in a possible murder plot and cover-up. This comedy series aired in 2017 and 2018. It has 14 episodes total. This comedy has a dark premise but you can’t help but enjoy the ridiculousness of the situation and Grint and Frost as a comedy duo that eventually adds Lindsay Lohan to the mix.
Snatch is a series based on the Guy Ritchie movie of the same name. It follows a group of young criminals who scam, steal, and commit all kinds of illegal activity. This Crackle original TV series lasted for two seasons and starred Luke Pasqualino, Rupert Grint, Lucien Laviscount, and Phoebe Dynevor.
Like the movie it’s based on, Snatch is an entertaining series that doesn’t take itself too seriously, which allows the viewers to come along for the wild ride. It’s full of great characters to love or loathe. It’s also one of Rupert Grint’s best roles as his character Charlie is really entertaining to watch.
Wild Target (AppleTV Rental)
Wild Target is a 2010 black comedy about an assassin who decides to not kill his target. This comedy has an A-list cast that includes Bill Nighy, Emily Blunt, Rupert Grint, Rupert Everette, Eileen Atkins, and Martin Freeman.
Wild Target is one of those quirky comedies that is silly but that’s half the charm. It has a great cast that includes future star Blunt, who gives one of her more offbeat performances. Grint gives an equally kooky performance in his role, but as a supporting character so he’s not as prevalent as Blunt and Nighy.
Cherrybomb is a drama that stars Rupert Grint, Robert Sheehan, Kimberley Nixon, and James Nesbitt. The film follows best friends Malachy (Grint) and Luke (Sheehan) as they fall deeper into the world of drugs, crime, and sex as they engage in activity to impress new girl Michelle (Nixon). Cherrybomb is essentially about teens in pain who try to escape that through less than productive or healthy activity.
For the most part, much of Grint’s post-Harry Potter work has been comedies or dark comedies. Cherrybomb offers a slight deviation from Grint’s norm in a much darker role. Cherrybomb is one of both Grint and Sheehan’s earlier film roles, and they both give excellent performances in it.
Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders (Amazon Prime)
Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders is a BBC One mini-series based on Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name. It stars John Malkovich as the famous Hercule Poirot. The ABC Murders cast also includes Andrew Buchan, Tara Fitzgerald, and Rupert Grint. The mini-series ran for three episodes in 2018.
Rupert Grint plays Inspector Crome in the show. He plays a character at first reluctant to work with Poirot but later they partner up to solve the mystery. You can often depend on Christie to produce a fascinating and entertaining murder mystery, The ABC Murders is no exception and the BBC does a good job of bringing Poirot’s world to life. It’s a quick watch so definitely a good mystery miniseries to watch.
Stream Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders on Amazon Prime.
Set in 1960s London, Moonwalkers follows a CIA Agent and rock band manager who team up to stage the moon landing. The film stars Ron Perlman, Rupert Grint, and Robert Sheehan. The quest to meet Stanley Kubrick and film a fake moon landing really takes these characters on one trippy adventure.
Moonwalkers has a cool concept because you often hear conspiracy theories on the whole moon landing debate. The film plays on that idea and takes it to ridiculous levels. The film has a great ensemble cast lead by Perlman. It’s also great to see Sheehan and Grint reunited on screen, this time in a more comedic film.
Stream Moonwalkers on Amazon Prime.
Into the White (Amazon)
Into the White is a World War II drama about two sets of planes that crash in the middle of a snowstorm. One of the crashed planes included German soldiers and the other two British soldiers. These two sets of war enemies must work together to survive, which isn’t easy with the contempt both sides have for one another.
Into the White is loosely based on a real event. The film explores the question of can enemies work together when there is a greater enemy at hand, surviving the elements. The film presents an often unseen image of World War II, one where the Germans and the British have to work together. It shows that peace and friendship isn’t really an option at this moment, but it could be in the future.
Rent Into The White on Amazon.
Rupert Grint, unfortunately, doesn't have many movies on Netflix but this list should provide plenty of other streaming options for those wanting to watch more Rupert Grint movies and TV shows. Rupert Grint can next be seen in Servant Season 3.
