Harry Potter's Rupert Grint has been tapped to star in CBS' Super Clyde, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The comedy pilot from Raising Hope's Greg Garcia centers on a meek, unassuming fast-food worker who decides to become a superhero.
Grint will play the title role of Clyde, the well-meaning and sweet yet slightly neurotic guy who never really feels like he fits in. The avid comic book reader considers himself a borderline agoraphobic with mild-to-severe anxiety issues who wishes he were a superhero himself.
When Clyde gets a $100,000-a-month inheritance from his long-dead eccentric Uncle Bill, he decides that the cash will be his secret superpower and will use it only for good and reward the good-hearted.
