Riverdale, the CW’s upcoming TV show twist on Archie Comics, has just cast three more characters: Reggie, Moose and Dilton.

Daniel Yang will play the part of the studious Dilton Doiley, yet another of Archie’s many acquaintances.

The CW has already cast the rest of the core Riverdale line-up, including KJ Apa as Archie, Ashleigh Murray as Josie, Camila Mendes as Veronica, Lili Reinhart as Betty, Cole Sprouse as Jughead and Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl. Here’s a photo of those six folks, all together:
KJ Apa has already promised that he’ll be dyeing his hair red for the role of Archie — although it is hard to imagine what he’ll look like after that. What do you think about the cast so far?
