Today several of Rupert‘s cast members on the pilot confirmed the bad news.
Justine Lupe wrote it first:
Sad to say CBS SUPER CLYDE isn’t going on… Grateful to have gotten to have some fun with @TyLabine, @stephenfry &the rest!
Tyler Labine was quick to reply:
@iamjustinelupe @stephenfry it was indeed great to get the opportunity to work with you both. Grint too. Everybody was awesome. Truly.
And lastly, Laura Ortiz gave her reaction to the news:
Thank you guys for all the support! it was an amazing project to have been a part of!! #superclyde
Of course, this is a huge disappointment for all us Rupert fans, but we have to keep a positive attitude and support Rupert in his future projects – he has an uncanny ability to surprise us, so we can’t wait to see what project will be announced next.
But let’s not remember this project as a disappointment, let’s all go to the galleries and enjoy the lovely pictures we got of Rupert filming in Los Angeles.
As a last effort to support this project and show everyone how much we want it to get made, we will start a little campaign which we hope everyone will take part in – on May 15th we’ll be tweeting FX and TBS in hopes that they consider picking up Super Clyde. To learn more click here.
They have just released the very first poster and Rupert is front and center on this very cool and different poster. Check it out below (you get the full size if you click on it):
In other news, several of the actors involved with Super Clyde tweeted today that they have now finished filming.
Stephen Fry even gave our own Rupert a little compliment on the way:
Wrapped! Home by 4.30 am. The boy Grinty done good. Who knows if it’ll be “picked up” for a series but was fun. Must sleep now …
Rupert‘s new on-screen sister Justine Lupe wrote the following which makes us very excited:
Wrapped! So happy to have been involved in such a fun and smart project with @TyLabine and @stephenfry.
And finally we can share this amazingly cute image of Rupert on the set of Super Clyde with the actor, Stanley Miller, playing young Clyde which was posted on his twitter:
UPDATE: We’re currently experiencing technical difficulties with our gallery and are working diligently to get it up and running again. In the mean time, please click on the picture to see the larger version!
UPDATE #2: We have another BTS picture of Rupert as Clyde along with Tyler Labine as Duke and Justine Lupe as Faith. You can view it below. (Our gallery is still being worked on, sorry for the inconvenience!)
To start everyone off, why don’t we go to the forums and discuss Rupert‘s brilliant Scouse accent in Into the White, which is perfectly depicted in this new clip released from the film:
