Exclusive! ‘Riverdale’ Star Casey Cott on Tonight’s Musical Episode
The CW’s dark and twisted teen drama “Riverdale” is going musical! On tonight’s episode, Riverdale High’s teens are mounting “Carrie: The Musical,” directed by none other than resident sassy one-liner king Kevin Keller, played by the charming Casey Cott. We caught up with Cott in Vancouver while he was onset shooting. “This is by far our most epic episode yet. Broadway meets Riverdale…what could be more iconically dramatic?” he said.
Though Cott hasn’t treaded the Broadway boards just yet, he grew up loving the theater and performing in many musicals in high school and college such as “Oklahoma,” “Guys and Dolls,” “Music Man,” and “Parade.” “It’s my favorite. I loved every second of it,” he said.
Cott is as excited to watch tonight’s episode as we are. He has plans to watch alongside his brother and frequent Broadway star Corey Cott. “Of all the dreams I have for my career, being on Broadway is at the top of the list,” said Cott. Here’s hoping he comes to the stage soon!
