Actor Casey Cott sat down with interviewers to talk about his role as Kevin Keller, an outspoken, openly-gay teen in Riverdale, the CW network’s drama based on Archie Comics.
Kevin Keller shocked Archie fans when he came out in a comic in 2011. It appears the televised adaptation of the series will embrace the character’s sexuality—though sadly, it will erase Jughead’s asexuality. Boo.
“He’s constantly saying the truth,” Cott says of his character. “And most of the time, he says things that probably everyone else is thinking, too.”
Riverdale will premiere on January 26.
