Rupert Grint, famous for his role as Ron Weasley in the “Harry Potter” movie franchise, will make
his American television network series debut in a new CBS superhero comedy, according to
sources. The British actor will star in a show – titled “Super Clyde” – which will feature Grint as a
slightly neurotic and anxious fast-food worker who decides that he wants to become a superhero
after inheriting a large sum of money. The official description for the show is as follows:
“An avid comic book reader considers himself a borderline agoraphobic with mild to severe anxiety
issues who wishes he were a super hero himself. When he 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.”
“Super Clyde” is created by Greg Garcia, who also created shows such as “My Name is Earl” and
FOX’s quirky hit comedy “Raising Hope.” Garcia has an additional pilot in the works with CBS as
well. If successful, “Super Clyde” will mark Grint’s first post-“Harry Potter” small screen role.
