The single-camera project from Raising Hopewriter/EP Greg Garcia follows a meek fast food worker (Harry Potter grad Grint) 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.

Labine played lovelorn vet Doug Jackson in NBC’s cancelled Animal Practice; he’s also had roles on Reaper, Boston Legal and Invasion

  • Awesome! I love Ty Labine. Hopefully he has better luck with this show than he did with Reaper, Sons of Tucson, Mad Love, Animal Practice…

  • Show killer… I actually won’t mind since the concept of the show is kind of meh to me and if opens Grint up then so be it.

  • So I guess this means Grint will be sporting an American accent because I can’t see Labine pulling off a passable British accent.

  • I am so curious to see Grint in this. I hope it makes it on air. He’s so naturally talented. I assume Grint will be using an American accent?

  • Wow, as if Rupert wasn’t awesome casting enough, I love Tyler Labine. He was so great in Reaper and I was one of the only loyal viewer of Sons of Tuscon (in which I really liked him in that too). So this is great news!

    • No Mark, there were two of us watching Sons of Tucson. :) I think Tyler can be pigeon holed into a particular character. Hopefully the writers will write him a little differently, but NOT to the extent that he loses his charming, ner-do-well demeanor. I am also very interested to see how well Rupert Grint has grown in acting ability as I always considered him to be the weakest link in the HP threesome.

  • Oh, Tyler Labine’s been cast in something, that means it really, truly is pilot season. And Ryan Hanson’s been cast in something, now we just have to wait for Joanna Garcia to land in an ensemble comedy, Andrea Anders to be in something (I can so see her as the female lead in Spy), and we’ll know which pilots aren’t going to see a second season. Except I really hope I’m wrong because Labine is so great, and I really would love to see him in Grint, and I want Ryan Hanson on my TV screen weekly.

    • Andrea Anders does have something. I think it’s called Divorce: A Love Story. Over at ABC. Who she obviously still has snowed.

  • If anyone’s going to play Robert Kirkman, it’s going to be this guy.

  • Good choice!
    That guy was amazing on Invasion, Reaper and Tucker & Dale.

  • I loved Ty in Invasion (shortlived on ABC a long time back) and Reaper. Hope this is successful for him. Just would like him to play perhaps a different type of character – he always seems to still be playing a version of “Sock”.
