Cole Sprouse Says Jughead Will Be A 'Different Character' in 'Riverdale' Season 3

Cole Sprouse surprised fans today (October 8) with a Reddit AMA to celebrate the upcoming premiere of Riverdale, which happens in just a few days.

The 26-year-old actor, who plays Jughead, opened up about his character changing, his favorite episode and the one thing he wished Jughead did more of in season two. Check it:

On his favorite episode: “The episode we’re finishing now is one that introduces us to the rest of the Jones family, while also being an Archie/Jughead narrative. Always fun getting to work with KJ, nice to finally meet Jug’s momma too.”

On what he wished Jughead did more of in previous seasons: “I do wish I had introduced something I’ve done this season, earlier into the show. Jughead is eating all the time now. Consistently snacking. In episode one, of this season it’s practically every scene…I think if I could go back to season 2, I would have eaten a lot more.”

On Jughead changing in season three: “Jughead was definitely a different character in season 2, and will be in season 3 as well. Every season is a slightly different genre and feeling, and so the characters are re-imagined slightly as well. What I will say about season 1 vs season 2 Jughead is that in season 1, Jug practically had no flaws. He was a quirky, quick-witted, socially averse, young writer and love interest who risks it all for loyalty and love. This character type is often well-loved. Season 2, Jughead is a flawed character. He’s beaten, recruited, told he’s royalty, given power very quickly, brash, hotheaded, outspoken, violent, has a savior complex, and because of this, gets punished (badly). He’s no longer as easily liked, but he’s a much more three dimensional character imo. Season three, after his close call with the grim reaper, he’s calm, loyal, confident, brave, and understanding of his own mistakes. Also he eats all the time, I think you’ll like him.”
