21 Jughead/Cole Sprouse T-Shirts for the Ultimate Riverdale Fan
Jughead Jones is an iconic comic book character. We all know that tall, lanky kid who wears that weird crown-like hat and has a thing for hamburgers. The character has evolved with each generation, but the cartoon figure has really not changed much in the past 75 years. Until now. With the advent of the television show Riverdale, Jughead has become a heartthrob.
Early on in the first episode of Riverdale, Kevin Keller spots Archie without his shirt on and exclaims: “Archie got hot!” Well, the same could be said about Jughead. But more so than hot… he became the dark, tortured outsider who girls (and boys like Kevin) are drooling over. And much of that has to do with the actor playing him: Cole Sprouse.
Cole has been in the entertainment industry since he was an infant. He and his brother, Dylan, took turns being babies on various shows and movies, like Adam Sandler’s Big Daddy. They had a hit Disney show, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. And both appeared to dodge the Disney curse of acting out after their show ended. Probably because Cole Sprouse took some time off to attend college.
But now Cole is back in the game and plays the iconic Jughead in the surprised hit (or, guilty pleasure), Riverdale. And Archie may be the star, but from what I’ve seen, it’s Jughead that’s getting all the attention. Especially at the San Diego Comic Con panel this year, where he was greeted with more applause and cheers than any of the other actors.
Cole plays Jughead with a surprising amount of depth. He’s sarcastic, but sensitive. He doesn’t care if he fits in, but always happy to be part of the gang. A very contradicted character, as well as the narrator of the story. Because this Jughead may sit alone eating burgers at Pop’s, but he’s also taking in the big picture of everything that’s going on around him. I can’t wait to see how he grows in the coming seasons.
Between his look, his goofy have, quotes and the classic comic, there are lots of things that make for great Jughead t-shirts. I dug up 21 one of them for you to drool over…
