Truth: We're only watching Netflix's Riverdale for Cole Sprouse aka Jughead Jones.
Just kidding—we're also into it for the drama, teen angst, pretty people, and shirtless KJ Apa (Archie Andrews).
But, as I said, the 24-year-old actor has been the HIGHLIGHT of our Friday nights ever since we started watching the show. This article is basically an appreciation post for how mighty fiiiiine Cole has grown up from his Disney days on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.
Exhibit A. The brooding emo kid
Cole is the PERFECT Jughead Jones with his tousled hair and piercing gaze 'na medyo galit that gets me so turned on' kinda thing.
Exhibit B. The understated hottie
He's got that James Dean daydream UGH. JUST. SO HOT.
Exhibit C. The goofy charmer
Beneath his brooding exterior, Cole's super goofy personality is one of his best qualities. (ILYSB)
Exhibit D. The JArchie bromance is real
Two hotties, who obviously are the best of friends, are definitely better than one!
