Riedinger recently finished a season-long turn as Joe Dupree on TNT’s Claws and also had a recurring role as Teo on Good Behavior, TNT’s edgy Michelle Dockery crime noir series.
The award-winning actor and director’s credits also include playing Carlos Lehder on Netflix’s Narcos and CBC’s The Romeo Section. He also has starred in movies including Black Christmas and the Diablo Cody’s scripted horror comedy Jennifer’s Body. Riedinger is repped by Buchwald, Principals Talent Management and Wright Entertainment.
The Season 3 finale of Riverdale, “Chapter Fifty-Seven: Survive the Night,” centered on the climatic reveal of this season’s mystery antagonist, the Gargoyle King. The episode was written by showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi and directed by Rachel Talalay.
At Comic-Con, Dominic Patten reported that “Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam” will be a tribute to the late Luke Perry and his character Fred Andrews, Archie’s father. Perry’s former Beverly Hills 90210 co-star Shannen Doherty will appear in that episode.
Season 4 of Riverdale premieres at 8 p.m. Wednesday, October 9, on the CW.
