Obviously the actor who plays one of the TV’s angsty characters has to have a little bit of a dark, creative side. And Jughead Jones has had the gift since childhood, evidently.
During an appearance on Tuesday’s episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, Cole Sprouse revealed that, like you, he also wrote poems to his mother as a child with subpar grammar and a sweet but simple sentiment. However, in true Jughead Jones fashion, there was a little twist to the arc of the piece:
“I love you mom, you are the best.
Your better than all the rest.
And if anyone ever takes us apart.
Id repededly stab them in the heart.”
“I just brought that angst all the way into Riverdale,” Sprouse said.
Sprouse also talked about the slight fear he felt bringing the beloved Archie comics to life in Riverdale. “It seemed a little scary to me,” Sprouse admitted when talking about the audition process. “When you start to see people mess with that really nostalgic property you love, it can be quite incendiary. ”
Well, if the poem is anything to go off of, Sprouse certainly fit the mold for the Twilight Zone-y narrator of the hit series.
Watch the full clip above from the episode, including a frank discussion about the purity of Jughead’s English Sheepdog.
New episodes of Riverdale air every Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
