"Harry Potter" actor Rupert Grint will star in the new CBS comedy "Super Clyde," says The Live Feed.
According to the site, the show, from "Raising Hope's" Greg Garcia, "centers on a meek, unassuming fast-food worker who decides to become a super hero."
"Grint will play the title role of Clyde, the well-meaning and sweet yet slightly neurotic guy who never feels like he really fits in. The avid comic book reader considers himself a borderline agoraphobic with mild to severe anxiety issues who wishes he were a super hero himself. When Clyde inherits a $100,000 a month inheritance from his long-dead eccentric Uncle Bill, he decides that the cash will be his secret super power and will use it only for good and reward the good-hearted."
Garcia will write and executive the comedy. Mike Fresco ("Raising Hope," "My Name Is Earl") will direct the pilot.
