I've managed to grab a couple of pictures of Richard from his cameo appearance in "How To Stop Being A Loser". I've also added the trailer below.

Standard Bank’s new crop of artists
By Christina Kennedy.
Thirty years ago Richard E Grant (born Esterhuysen) was among the winners of the first Young Artist Award, sponsored in those days by Five Roses. The Swaziland-born actor has since become a stalwart of the international indie cinema scene, earning plaudits for films such as the cult classic Withnail and I and the upstairs-downstairs ensemble drama Gosford Park.
Last night, a fresh new crop of Young Artists was crowned at Johannesburg’s edgy inner-city arts hub of Arts on Main, and will no doubt be hoping that similar bright lights await them.
Sponsored by Standard Bank since 1984, the awards are presented every year by the National Arts Festival in recognition of bubbling-under talent in various disciplines. The recipients are often on the cusp of national recognition and fame, or have already started making an impression on the arts scene and need an extra boost to propel their careers into the stratosphere.
The 2012 Standard Bank Young Artists are Kelebogile (Pearl) Boikanyo for music; Michael Subotzky for visual art; Princess Zinzi Mhlongo for theatre; Bailey Snyman for dance; and Afrika Mkhize for jazz.
