What The Riverdale Cast Would Look Like If They Were True To The Comics

Published

on

Riverdale is quickly gaining popularity, with two seasons already out and the third set to premiere October 10, 2018. It’s based on an almost 80-year-old comic series about a young boy, Archie Andrews, and the many adventures he takes with his friends in the small midwestern town of Riverdale. Here’s what they look like in the comics, and what the actors should look like to best portray their characters according to Looper.

Cole Sprouse As Jughead Jones

Cole Sprouse is an uncanny match for Jughead on the T.V. series. Jughead has slightly shorter and darker hair, but Sprouse was able to nail his facial expressions and signature beanie. The only thing differing Sprouse from his character is Jughead’s unnaturally long nose. However, Cole Sprouse is one of the more accurately cast members, unlike this next actor.

Luke Perry As Fred Andrews

Luke Perry is honestly not the best match for Archie’s dad, Fred Andrews. In the comics, Fred is round, balding, and sports a mustache, while Perry has a classic messy hairdo and is far from the physique of his character. However, no one’s complaining about Luke Perry’s stellar performance and “upgrade” as Archie’s dad in the show.

K.J. Apa As Archie Andrews

J.K. Apa is close to the beloved Archie in the original comics, but with a bit of a style upgrade just like his father in the show. While Apa has red hair, it’s not as bright as Archie’s, nor does he have the freckles to really pull the look off. However, it makes more sense that girls would be fighting over J.K. Apa than a true Archie dead ringer.

Madelaine Petsch As Cheryl Blossom

Madelaine Petsch closely resembles Cheryl in the show, with only a few changes needed to make her look exactly the part. If she wanted to look exactly like Cheryl, she would need to lighten her hair, as well as change her brown eyes to green and add some bangs to complete the look. Petsch was a much better appearance-match for her character than this next actor.

Casey Cott As Kevin Keller

Kevin Keller is not one of the original Archie Comics characters. He was added in 2010 as the comic’s first openly gay character. As important as Kevin is to the comics and show, Fox did not cast him to look at all like the original depiction. In the comics, Kevin is blonde and blue-eyed, while Cott has very dark hair and green eyes. Though Cott doesn’t look like his comic book character, he does a great job of playing the part.
