A couple weeks ago we learned that beloved ginger Rupert Grint would star in the upcoming CBS pilot entitled Super Clyde.
Now, we know who’ll play his brother on the show.
Tyler Labine has joined the show and will play the older (?) brother. No other information about his character has been unveiled at this time.
When news of Grint’s involvement broke earlier this month, fans were excited they’d have a new chance to catch their Rupert via weekly television. We spoke about the news on the latest episode of Hype, released yesterday.
Grint’s character Clyde is a super hero of sorts. According to a description when news broke, Clyde “is 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.”
Clyde will start his arc as a “meek, unassuming fast food worker.” Excuse us for stereotyping, but it looks like Labine will be able to place a similar character.
Super Clyde is only in pilot phase right now. In other words, only one episode has been ordered by CBS. We should know at some point this year if it gets upgraded to a full blown show for the network.
