Writer, producer Gregory Garcia (Yes Dear, My Name is Earl, Raising Hope) has just singed one of Nerdom’s favorite resident gingers, Rupert Grint (Harry Potter‘s Ron Weasley) to star in his new CBS comedy Super Clyde. The single camera comedy is described as:
Clyde is a meek, unassuming fast-food worker who decides to become a super hero. 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.
So I’m guessing he won’t be using his new-found wealth to refurbish his basement into the Batcave or be beating heads like Kick Ass. Hey, Kick Ass is a comedy, an action comedy, but a comedy all the same.
Garcia does have a stellar track record with comedies so there’s a good chance this pilot will make it to television screens and mark the first small screen series regular role for Grint.
What do you think? Can Grint carry a show by himself? Could some of his Harry Potter friends make some guest appearances?
