Rupert Grint, best known as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter series, has been cast as the lead in Super Clyde, a CBS pilot created by Raising Hope’s Greg Garcia.
Grint will star in the title role, a fast food worker who likes to keep to himself, borderline agoraphobic and has anxiety issues. The Clyde character is a comic book geek and decides to become a super hero himself after suddenly inheriting $100,000 a month from a deceased uncle, The Hollywood Reporter notes.
Garcia will write the pilot and executive produce as part of a new overall deal with CBS. The network greenlit the pilot last month, along with another Garcia project about a divorced man living with his parents. In addition to Raising Hope, Garcia is also known for My Name Is Earl.
Since Harry Potter ended, Grint has kept busy, recently filming Into The White. That film hits theaters on April 12, reports MTV News.
He is also set to star in a Beach Boys biopic called The Drummer and GBCB, about the famous New York punk club.
