Charles Melton's Dad Had the Funniest Reaction to Finding Out He Might Play Reggie on 'Riverdale'

Charles Melton didn’t have any idea who Reggie was when he auditioned for Riverdale.

“I went in about four times [for the audition], I didn’t know until the second time that it was actually [for Reggie],” he told Teen Vogue in an interview.

“I thought that was pretty cool when I found out. I had no idea who Reggie was, so I had to call my parents. My dad is a huge Archie comics fan.”

His dad gave him some mildly insulting words of encouragement.

“He goes, ‘Dude, you’re perfect for Reggie. He’s just a jerk and he’s funny, and a prankster. Just be yourself, man,’” Charles remembered. “And I was like, ‘Wow, sweet, dad. I’m a jerk, great. This should be easy.’”

LOL! We can’t wait to see what Charles brings to the character of Reggie this season.

Riverdale airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW. For a sneak peek of Cheryl singing in tonight’s episode, go HERE.
