Meet Hiram Lodge, Mark Consuelos
Pitch and Queen of the South actor, Mark Consuelos, has been cast as Hiram Lodge on the second season of Riverdale, the CW’s hit series based on Archie Comics. TV Line reports Consuelos will first appear in the series’ second season as the Lodge patriarch, who has been behind bars for all of season one so far. Consuelos is to sign on as a season two series regular on Riverdale, BUT only if Pitch (which its status is still unknown) doesn’t get renewed for a second season. If it does, Consuelos will drop his role as Veronica’s dad, Hiram. Check out how the CW describes Hiram Lodge below.

Hiram Lodge, per the show’s official description, is “a ruthless, handsome, charismatic businessman who is coming back to Riverdale after weathering a financial scandal that almost destroyed him. He is there to reconnect with his wife Hermione and, especially, his daughter Veronica, who is the apple of his eye.” We haven’t seen Hiram on the show yet, since he’s been in jail awaiting trial for his involvement in a Bernie Madoff-esque embezzlement scheme. But it sounds like he beats the rap and comes home to make Veronica’s life even more complicated.
