Ron Weasley is heading to the small screen.  Rupert Grint has been set to lead the CBS pilot Super Clyde, which centers on a young man who decides to become a superhero.  Grint will play Clyde, a fast-food worker and avid comic book reader who considers himself borderline agoraphobic with mild to severe anxiety issues.  Clyde wishes he were a superhero himself, and when he inherits a $100,000 a month inheritence from his deceased eccentric uncle, “he decides that the cash will be his secret super power and will use it only for good and reward the good-hearted.”  So it’s like a My Name Is Earl reboot with a dash of Batman thrown in for good measure.  Hit the jump for more.
