Pilot Scoop: Harry Potter Pal Rupert Grint to Star in CBS Comedy Super Clyde
Rupert Grint, best known as young wizard Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, will play the lead burger-flipper in CBS’ comedy pilot Super Clyde, TVLine has learned.
The single-camera project from Raising Hope writer/EP Greg Garcia follows a meek fast food worker who decides to become a super hero.
Clyde is one of a pair of pilots Garcia has with the Eye Network; the other is an untitled multi-cam about a recently divorced man living with his parents.
In addition to playing Ron in the eight Potter films, Grint lent his voice to a 2012 episode of American Dad!.Follow @kimroots
