We had the pleasure of speaking with Cole Sprouse at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. Cole Sprouse plays Archie’s best friend, Jughead. Interview topics include Sprouse’s excitement for the show, film noir’s influence, the flexibility of the Archie universe, among other things.

Cole Sprouse is best known for his long-time portrayal of Cody Martin on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and The Suite Life on Deck on Disney Channel.

For those unfamiliar with Riverdale, it’s a much talked about debuting series on The CW that takes a unique film noir take on the Archie comics universe.
