'Harry Potter's' Rupert Grint tapped to star in CBS comedy

Some “Harry Potter” fans might have a hard time accepting Rupert Grint in a role other than that of Ron Weasley, the character he played on the big screen for 10 years.

Others, however, will be thrilled to learn that the actor will reportedly star in a new CBS comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Grint has been tapped to play the title role in “Super Clyde,” which centers on a fast-food worker who decides to become a super hero.

“Raising Hope” creator Greg Garcia will write and executive producer the series.

    I always thought Rupert was the strongest actor of the three main characters in HP, so I wish him well in this...even if it doesn't sound like the strongest premise ever. "Now, a sneak peak at season ten of Super Clyde". Snerk.

    He's a fine comic actor. The Harry Potter films were a step down for him.

    NOOOOOO!!!!! Ron, don't stoop to that level. Play with your magic wand instead of a spatula. Make sun while the hay still shines!!!!! If you are a fan, take all of the places where they say wand and replace it with willy. It is a guarunteed laugh...
