Rupert Grint landed a lead role in CBS’s new comedy Super Clyde. Grint is playing the role of a fast food worker, Clyde, who never feels like he fit in. With the help of a grand inheritance, Clyde decides to become a super hero. The Hollywood Reporter stated:

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.



Garcia will write and executive produce the single-camera comedy under his new deal at CBS Television Studios. Super Clyde is one of two pilots the network has ordered from the showrunner, with an untitled family comedy also set up at the network. Mike Fresco(Raising Hope, My Name Is Earl) will direct the pilot
