The Middle's Charlie McDermott Zips Into 'Super Clyde' Role

Charlie McDermott has been cast as the title character in Super Clyde, Deadline reports.

The 24-year-old actor, who plays Axl Heck on ABC’s The Middle, has joined the CBS pilot from Greg Garcia, while he’s at the end of his contract on the series.

Originally, the pilot centerd on Clyde who was a “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.”

However, there’s no word on whether the plot will remain the same.

Rupert Grint was originally cast in the role.
