Deadline is reporting that famed British comedian Stephen Fry has signed on for Greg Garcia’s CBS comedy pilot, “Super Clyde.” Harry Potter‘s Rupert Grint will star as the titular Clyde in the series. Fry has signed on to play his butler Randolph. Fry will also join “Reaper” and “Mad Love” star Tyler Labine, who plays Clyde’s older brother.
Grint’s character in the series, Clyde, is described as “a 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.”
