Dylan Sprouse Doesn’t Want Cole Watching Him on ‘Riverdale’

By  | 

One of the original kings of Twitter Cole Sprouse is back on the small screen in The CW’s Archie comics-based Riverdale, and his loyal fan base is 100 percent down with his take on Jughead Jones. Cole recently opened up to Elle magazine about being back in the public eye, the one thing he hates being asked about the show, and why he’s not a fan of brother Dylan watching his work…

When asked whether or not Dylan is on board with his brother’s CW role, Cole told Elle:

“He supports the show… I don’t know if he enjoys it. This kind of programming has never really been our flavor of choice. I don’t really want him to watch anything I do and I don’t really watch anything he’ll do. We have a very easy time separating work and play and I wouldn’t really care less if he watched or if he enjoyed it. I don’t really have an easy time watching myself, so I guess I sort of imprint that upon my friends and family.”

That, of course, won’t stop Dylan from watching, according to Dylan…


Speaking of shipping “Bughead” (aka: Jughead and Betty), Cole confessed that he’s always been a shipper of Betty and Archie:

“I actually really ship Betty and Archie. When I would read the Archie comics when I was younger I was rooting for Betty and Archie way over any alternative. [I think I would have seen] that long-lived, childlike romance from two people knowing each other since youth as probably quite romantic. I am a sucker for that childhood romance narrative.”

And as far as the one question he hates being asked about the show, Cole said, “Well, the question we get all the time as a cast is, ‘Are you a Betty or Veronica person?’ I don’t like that. I think it’s hard and it also puts the cast members against one another in a strange and competitive way that makes me a little uncomfortable. So most of our cast don’t even answer it.”

As PC as his answer is for the Betty vs. Veronica debate, at least he doesn’t play coy when it comes to what he thinks of those Coachella trends…

Your Coachella outfit is appropriating 100% of a Native American headdress for someone who claims to be 2% Choctaw.
