Greg Garcia’s latest project could draw a lot of attention from Harry Potter fans…
The 42-year-old Latino television series creator/producer has cast Rupert Grint, who portrayed Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, as the title character in his CBS pilot Super Clyde.
The project, from CBS Television Studios, centers on Clyde (Grint), a meek, unassuming fast food worker who decides to become a super hero.
Mike Fresco will direct the pilot, as well as executive-produce with Garcia.
This marks the first series role for Grint, who will next be seen starring opposite Shia LaBeouf in The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman.
Garcia is the creator/executive producer of the Emmy-winning My Name Is Earl. He’s also the mastermind behind CBS’ Yes, Dear and Fox’s Raising Hope.
