Cole Sprouse Talks About Skeet Ulrich Leaving 'Riverdale': 'I'd Ride or Die For That Guy'

Cole Sprouse is opening up about a lot of things in the latest episode of Variety Live.

The 28-year-old Riverdale star talked about his own new podcast, how he feels about Skeet Ulrich leaving the show and more.

See what Cole shared below:

On his narrative podcast, Borrasca: “It’s just finding that balance between how much emphasis you have to place on reading the dialogue when someone is only getting an emotion through something audible. Like, let’s say ‘sadness’ — you don’t have the ability to rely on something like a quivering lip or like a physical expression or a manifestation of that emotion. Where do you have to push the line vocally, [I] found really fun and interesting.”

On quarantine life: “This is one of those rare, rare times where, if you’re privileged and lucky enough to feel safe and be safe, to actually be able to relax, like truly relax. Take a step away from having to commodify almost everything you’re doing on a day-to-day basis and find time to work on your mental health and find time to work on your physical health. I’ve tried to take as much time as possible to do nothing. Like truly nothing. Enjoy myself and sit and relax and grow out my mustache until it catches all of the soup that I’m cooking.”

On saying goodbye to Skeet Ulrich on Riverdale: “I think it’s easy, as an actor, especially on a long-term project to start feeling like, creatively, you’re repeating the same motifs or, or whatever it is. But in truth, Jughead was a much more prominent character than FP was on the show. So, I don’t think I’m really qualified to talk on that because to compare and contrast our two positions is sort of fruitless…Skeet’s truly a second father to me, so I’m, like, ride or die for that guy. So, anything that makes that guy happy is something that makes me happy.”
