HP Cast

Actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) attended the Hollywood premiere of his new film, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" on Thursday evening at Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

Fellow Potter co-star Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) also happened to be in town and stopped by the premiere to show his support for his friend wearing a homemade "I [heart] Tom Felton" t-shirt. Nice to see the Weasley/Malfoy rivalry was left on the big screen!

Images of the two actors at the premiere can be seen in the Leaky galleries.

Earlier this week, Felton also stopped by the late night talk show Conan to talk some more about "Deathly Hallows: Part 2." Host Conan O'Brien took the opportunity to bring up some Draco/Harry fan art, taking Felton by surprise. Video of his appearance can be seen at this link.

"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" arrives in theaters on August 5, 2011.

Who can NOT love Rupert when he does stuff like this? Well done, Rupes! I love how the HP cast support one another.

Congrats to Tom on his new movie, too!

Rupert is as lovable as Ron. Tom was an awfully good sport on Conan. He looked downright uncomfortable for a bit.

How wonderful that the friendships that were forged on the Potter set remain strong. These kids have real CLASS! And it shows.
