Cole Sprouse Reveals That Before 'Riverdale' He Almost Quit Acting Forever

Cole Sprouse Reveals That Before 'Riverdale' He Almost Quit Acting Forever

Now that we know Cole Sprouse as Jughead, it’s difficult to imagine anyone else ever taking on the role — but it turns out, if Cole weren’t offered his memorable Riverdale part, he might have been done with acting for good.

In a revealing interview with Wonderland Magazine, Cole gets real about the struggle of fame and his relationship with acting before Riverdale.

After graduating from New York University, the 24-year-old actor left New York to visit California for exactly one week, and he told his manager that if he didn’t book anything for pilot season he was “never coming back to this.”

He also spoke about the challenge of being famous and how he connects with Jughead’s character on a personal level, as he often feels lonely as a celebrity.

We’re so glad he was offered the Riverdale role that week, because it changed all of our lives, and we hope he will continue on for many future seasons.
