CW’s Archie Pilot ‘Riverdale’ Casts Reggie, Moose and Dilton (Exclusive)

Ross Butler, Daniel Yang and Cody Kearsley join Greg Berlanti‘s modern take on classic comic book

The CW’s modern take on Archie comics has added three more “Riverdale” residents. Ross Butler, Daniel Yang and Cody Kearsley are joining the Greg Berlanti drama pilot, TheWrap has learned.

“Riverdale” is set in the present day and is based on the iconic Archie Comics characters. It is described as a surprising and subversive take on Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade.

Butler will play the role of Reggie Mantle, Yang will be Dilton Doiley and Kearsley has landed the role of Moose Mason. All three will be recurring if the show goes to series.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will write and executive produce along with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Jon Goldwater.

Butler recurred on ABC Family/Freeform’s “Chasing Life” and Disney Channel’s “K.C. Undercover.” He is represented by Vincent Cirrincione Associates.

Kearsley is repped by Red Talent Management.

For the record: A previous version of this story misspelled actor Cody Kearsley’s name.
