Michael Consuelos Will Play Young Hiram on Upcoming 'Riverdale' Flashback Episode

Michael Consuelos, the son of All My Children alums Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa, has been cast to play the high-school version of his dad in an upcoming flashback episode of Riverdale.

Entitled "The Midnight Club," the hour will be subversive take on the John Hughes classic The Breakfast Club, revealed showrunner Roberto Aguire-Saccasa last week during the Television Critics Association 2018 summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

"We are going to learn about a really, really dark secret in Riverdale that the parents have been keeping since they were in high school," he said.

The show's younger cast will be playing their on-screen parents in the episode, but some questions remained as to whom would fill in for Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) and Hal Cooper, as neither of them have sons on the canvas..

Teen Hiram is the first acting gig for Michael Consuelos, currently a junior at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts.

Meanwhile, Mark Consuelos took home the award for Choice TV Villain at last night's Teen Choice Awards.

The new season of Riverdale premieres Wednesday, October 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
