AceShowbiz - "Riverdale" season 2 has offered the first look at the new addition to its cast. After it's announced that the current sophomore season will feature Betty Cooper's (Lili Reinhart) long-lost brother Chic Cooper, a new set photo reveals the first look at Chic, played by Hart Denton ("Lethal Weapon").
Madchen Amick, who plays Alice Cooper, took to her Instagram account to share a selfie featuring her and her on-screen son. Hart could be seen donning a red checkered hoodie and a black cap. He posed alongside Madchen who looked casual in a black top and big hoop earrings.
"Look who I found roaming the halls of #Riverdale High... one of the sweetest humans I've ever met!" she wrote in the caption. "Plz help me welcome our latest addition to the #Cooper family @hartdenton -aka- #ChicCooper ...buckle-up sweet boy, it's gonna be a wild ride!!!"
Creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa previously shared on Twitter that The CW series had just begun filming its eleventh episode, titled "The Wrestler". Fans assume that it may be the episode where Chic will be introduced or he'll appear on episode 9, "Silent Night, Deadly Night", crashing Coopers' Christmas.
Back in season 1 finale, Betty discovered that her mother Alice got pregnant with her first child in high school and she gave the baby son up for adoption. Chic is depicted as tough, resourceful, rough around the edges, and distrustful of new people. He grows up in the foster system, then living on his own since he was 18.
Chic is further depicted as "a survivor" who "knows how to look for himself." However, "his mysterious past is a secret only he knows. Chic didn't finish high school, hustles to scrape together a living on the fringes of society. There's a darkness to Chic that is both sexy and scary." Debuted in "Little Archie" in 1960s as a teenager, Chic is a secret agent working for the government.
