Harry Potter star Rupert Grint plans to sell ice-cream if his acting career fails to last beyond the boy wizard franchise The 18-year-old is set to appear as Ron Weasley in the series until 2010, and insists he wants to continue on an acting path - but is open to a change in jobs if things don't work out. He says, "I definitely want to continue acting and just see where it goes from there." But Grint insists he has a unique contingency plan in place after buying an ice cream van: "If it doesn't work out, I have still got the van!"
