Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse Also Has Thoughts On That “I’m A Weirdo” Jughead Speech
US TOO, COLE.
While there were more important moments than a bit of a cringe speech from Jughead going on in season one of Riverdale, we’re still going to give it the coverage it deserves. Especially since Cole Sprouse himself just opened up about the whole thing.
Answering all of the questions under the sun during a Reddit AMA earlier this week, Cole explained that he was simply playing up to what Jughead is at core: A cringeboy.

“I was that kid when I was 16, so truthfully, it made sense (in the most haunting way). I think this show plays with classic stereotypes well, and jughead definitely has his cringeboy moments,” Cole so eloquently explained.
But it’s not like he thinks we should stop with the memes, because that would just be silly.
“Juggy deserves the flack. Glad the scene resonated with the audience the same way it resonated with me as the actor reading those lines,” he added.
He also goes on to reveal a whole load of other info about why Jughead narrates the show, whether he’ll ever get a new hat and whether his character’s asexuality will ever be addressed.
"The narration was undoubtedly the part of jughead's character that made him so attractive to me as an actor. There is a tremendous pretentiousness in a kid who thinks he can write about the town around him. That pretentiousness is something as a teen I resonated with, and many people do. To me it was so, damn, teenaged," he said.
So yeah, bit of a day for us Riverdale fans.
