Well this should make things interesting in Riverdale: EW can exclusively reveal that Graham Phillips, who played Alicia’s son Zach on The Good Wife, will appear on two episodes of The CW’s teen soap as Veronica’s ex, Nick St. Clair. When we last saw Veronica (Camila Mendes), the raven-haired beauty was dating the town’s heartthrob Archie (K.J. Apa).
According to Riverdale EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, “Nick is an old classmate of Veronica’s from New York, and despite his parent-pleasing veneer, he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing: a hard-partying Lothario with dark desires and an unchecked sense of privilege. His arrival in Riverdale will threaten Archie’s relationship with Veronica, and may even put some of our characters at risk.”
Riverdale‘s second season premieres Oct. 11 at 9 p.m. on The CW.
