Riverdale: Cole Sprouse shows off Jughead-ready black hair

All Cole Sprouse needs now is a beanie — and maybe a burger.

In preparation for his role as Jughead Jones on The CW’s Archie Comics-inspired Riverdale, the Suite Life of Zack & Cody star has traded his signature blond locks for black. Based on the images Sprouse shared on Twitter and Instagram on Monday, the former Disney Channel star looks to be a dead ringer for the comics’ gluttonous slacker.

Already in Vancouver to film the pilot, Sprouse has also shown off his new look in photos with fans — including one in front of the hotel that doubled as the outside of Suite Life‘s Tipton Hotel.

Billed as “a surprising and subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade,” Riverdale also stars K.J. Apa, Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart, and Luke Perry.
