Consuelos, who performs villain Hiram Lodge,who can be Veronica’s dad, can be going
after 4 seasons on the present.
“So tonight’s episode is Mark’s swan song playing our hunky villain Hiram Lodge on Riverdale after four insane, glorious years,” showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa advised Deadline
. “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.”
Consuelos thanked Aguirre-Sacasa for the chance, telling the publication in a press release: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”
Consuelos first appeared on the sequence within the Season 2 premiere. He performed a wealthy mob boss who tried to maintain Veronica away from Archie.
The present relies on the characters from Archie Comics.
