Rupert Grint is best known for his role as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film series... or is he? Today he is so often mistaken for Ed Sheeran that now he claims that Ed Sheeran is a character that he created.

MTV's Josh Horowitz teamed up with Rupert to create this hilarious spoof video that feels like a throwback to the TRL days of my youth. I'm entertained by this for a number of reasons. First of all, it's just funny that so many people confuse the two guys. Also, I love the Harry Potter films, and Ed Sheeran individually - to me they are both magical.

Wondering where the confusion stems from? Yes, they are both ginger-haired Brits... but I think it started when Rupert Grint starred in Ed's video for 'Lego House.'

Rupert has also recently done some dramatic readings of Ed's song lyrics. He's read 'Shape of You,' and 'Thinking Out Loud.'
