On Februrary 13th 2013, news hit the internet that Rupert was to star as the lead in the pilot of an American TV show called 'Super Clyde'.
CBS, the network which will air the show, announced that 'Super Clyde' would "center 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.”
