Rupert Grint is making the leap to the small screen to star in Greg Garcia’s (Raising Hope) new single-camera CBS comedy. A representative for the Harry Potter actor confirmed the Hollywood Reporter‘s story that Grint will play the role of Clyde — a sweet, anxious fast-food employee who loves comic books and dreams of being a superhero. When he discovers that he’s set to inherit $100,000 a month from a dead relative, he decides that his wealth will be his super power.
A rags-to-riches philanthropic superhero who uses his money for good? Sounds fun enough, but hopefully Clyde will at least buy himself an awesome costume.

Back to the Future‘s Christopher Lloyd guest stars on Tuesday’s Raising Hope (Fox, 8 p.m. ET), playing a bank representative who Burt and Virginia must convince to clear Jimmy’s debt (which, because his parents are Burt and Virginia, dates back to his childhood). Even if Burt and Virginia have to give up their new DeLorean for the cause, we hope they get to keep the new DeLorean door they put on their house. Excellent idea. READ FULL STORY »
Mike O’Malley and Liza Snyder are reuniting for Raising Hope!
EW has learned exclusively that the former Yes, Dear stars are set to reunite in an episode set to later this season. O’Malley and Snyder will guest star as a couple who finds an old sex tape that Burt (Garret Dillahunt) and Virgina (Martha Plimpton) made many years ago.
“As one of the world’s biggest Yes, Dear fans, I am very excited about this reunion,” says Raising Hope executive producer Greg Garcia, who co-created Dear with the late Alan Kirschenbaum. “I can’t wait to work with Mike and Liza again. Two incredibly funny people who turn my tin cans into gold every time.”
O’Malley and Snyder previously played married couple Jimmy and Christine Hughes on Yes, Dear for six seasons until the show’s conclusion in 2006. O’Malley currently has a recurring part as Burt Hummel on Glee.

Great Scott! Christopher Lloyd is coming to Fox’s Raising Hope.
Not only that, but the actor will appear in a Back to the Future-themed episode of the comedy series.
Lloyd plays a loan collector named Dennis Powers who calls on the Chances for some old debt after Jimmy (Lucas Neff) and Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) consider buying a new car on credit. We’re told you can definitely expect Lloyd (who, of course, played Emmett “Doc” Brown in the time-travel movie trilogy) to end up in the driver’s seat of a DeLorean. Lloyd’s last primetime TV acting gig was an appearance on Fox’s Fringe last year.
Raising Hope airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox. In case you missed it, here’s executive producer Greg Garcia talking to EW.com about this season.
Raising Hope‘s bizarre but touching second season finale almost felt like a series finale — everything tied up nicely, and it paraded a bunch of minor characters, past and present, through a Seinfeld-ian courtroom scene. Luckily for us fans, the Chance family’s weird adventures are far from over. Show creator Greg Garcia teased for us what we can expect in season 3, which begins tonight. Read on for scoop on Jimmy (Lucas Neff) and Sabrina’s (Shannon Woodward) relationship, whether Jimmy’s serial killer ex-wife Lucy (Bijou Phillips) is really dead, and whether Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman) will find love any time soon.

To promote her Fox comedy Raising Hope (which begins its third season Oct. 2), Martha Plimpton pitched a funny idea. “People are always trying to come up with creative ways of engaging the viewers,” she tells EW. “And I thought well, I play a housekeeper on a show, what if I went and cleaned the house of Raising Hope‘s biggest fan. In my uniform.” The network thought she was joking, but she was serious. The contest begins today at www.fox.com/cleansweep. Through Oct. 8, fans can enter by submitting their best “Awkward Family Photo” and a paragraph stating why their family is just like the Chance family and why they deserve a house call from Martha and her TV husband Garret Dillahunt. Yes, he’s coming along to, to make like his character and mow the winner’s lawn. (And okay, they’ll have professional crews there to help them.)
Raising Hope creator Greg Garcia will select the winner from the Top 10 finalists in mid-October, and Plimpton and Dillahunt will get their hands dirty later that month or in early November. READ FULL STORY »
Fox and the social media giant Twitter have teamed to put the third season premiere of Raising Hope online. Today through Sept. 27, the episode will be available via the show’s official Twitter page http://www.twitter.com/raisinghopefox. The show will be presented without commercials. This represents the first time a full episode of TV has been officially released to play within Twitter itself (rather than, say, a network promoting a link to a player on another site).
“Season Three is shaping up to be our best season yet, so we’re excited about this opportunity for new viewers to sample the show, as well as giving a sneak peek to our loyal fans who know how to use Twitter,” said the show’s creator, Greg Garcia in a statement. “My father, however, will have to wait to see the premiere episode on regular TV on Oct. 2, but that’s what he gets for being old.” READ FULL STORY »

Wilmer Valderrama has closed a deal to appear in the upcoming season of Fox’s Raising Hope.
The former That ’70s Show star will appear in at least three episodes in the upcoming third season. His character will be a love interest for Sabrina’s mother Tamara, who is played by another famous guest star this season — Melanie Griffith.
Valderrama was most recently a series regular on NBC’s Awake, with other credits including the films Fast Food Nation and Columbus Day. Fox’s Raising Hope returns Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 8 p.m.
Tonight, Raising Hope (Fox, 9:30 p.m.) begins its two-part season 2 finale, which finds the family’s history with Hope’s mother, the Boyfriend Killer, chronicled on Inside Probe, a TV program hosted by guest star Nancy Grace. At the end of the first half hour, there’s a bombshell that sends the family to court in the April 17 episode to retain custody of Jimmy’s daughter. “It’s an old-fashioned ‘To be continued…’ cliffhanger, which I love,” Martha Plimpton says of Part 1. “They always did that kind of stuff on all the shows I grew up watching. I love that [Raising Hope creator Greg Garcia] was willing to go there and make fun of the whole trope.”
Part 2′s courtroom scenes feature the return of guest stars including Jason Lee, Jaime Pressly, Ethan Suplee, and David Krumholtz, who take the witness stand. But it’s Plimpton, wearing the suit Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman) bought to be buried in (“I don’t think she expected to be living past the ’80s,” Virginia says), who’s the scene-stealer. ”There’s one moment in particular where Virginia is being questioned and she panics and goes all Miss America. I thought that was hilarious,” Plimpton teases.
Let’s see how she handles being grilled with an EW Pop Culture Personality Test. READ FULL STORY »
