Illustration for article titled Ron Weasley could be an agoraphobic superhero on CBS next fall

Everybody's favorite ginger from Harry Potter has a strange new superhero show lined up as his next project. It's a little bit of Kick-Ass with a touch of Bubble Boy, and it's called Super Clyde. The show is currently under development at CBS, and according to THR:

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.


This could be great, or terrible. It all depends on tone. Either way, we like the idea of new, original programming. Plus Grint is nice to look at.
