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

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.

The Riverdale cast is closer than ever, and new Reggie Charles Melton is now a full-fledged member of the crew.

We know this is the case because he’s already dragging veteran Riverdale actor Casey Cott online.

“ABSOLUTELY started listening to Christmas music today,” Casey tweeted yesterday (which, same). “I’m so stoked.”

“Good for you,” Charles clapped back. “No one cares.”

“Love when a fan of mine tries to ruin my day!” Casey responded. “Nice try Melton! #whoareyou #retire.”

“You are worthless.”

These two will be besting Cole and KJ‘s iconic rivalry in no time.

Last season, Reggie wasn’t too involved in the action, but this season, executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says he’s been in every episode filmed so far.

“Reggie’s such a big part of the mythology,” Roberto told TVLine. “We really were missing that kind of day-to-day frenemy antagonist with Archie.”

He added that Charles is “playing Reggie very differently than [Ross], but I love it… I think people will be really surprised and pleased by him.”

If you missed it, the show also just cast Hart Denton as Betty Cooper’s long-lost brother Chic Cooper.

Riverdale returns on Wednesday (October 11) @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW!

'Riverdale' Scoop: Fred Andrews' Shooting Puts Everyone On The 'Defensive'

Vanessa Morgan is all decked out as Toni Topaz on the set of Riverdale in Vancouver, Canada on Thursday afternoon (September 7).

The newcomer to the crew was seen with red streaks in her hair for her character, while co-stars KJ Apa and Charles Melton were spotted heading out for a workout together.

Speaking with TVLine, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacassa hinted at what’s ahead for the show’s second season.

First things first: Fred Andrews.

The hunt for the hooded gunman “leads into darker chapters of Riverdale’s history, and puts all of our characters on the defensive,” he says.

As for Bughead and Varchie, there are challenges coming to both couples: “It’s almost like every force in the universe is out to pry Bughead apart.”

He adds, “There are going to be problems coming in multiple different directions, besieging both of our couples.

Riverdale returns in October on The CW.
