I’m loving what I see of Kevin Keller on ‘Riverdale’

In a new trailer for The CW’s Riverdale, the first words we hear from Kevin Keller are these: ‘Oh. My. God. Archie got hot!’

The first openly gay character in the history of the Archie Comics franchise will be speaking mind on the show which premieres on Thursday.

‘He’s kind of one of the only characters who is constantly saying the truth,’ says actor Casey Cott who plays Kevin.

‘Most of the time he says things that probably everyone else is thinking too.’

Keller was introduced in 2012 as the first openly gay character in the history of the franchise which takes place in the fictional town of Riverdale and includes such characters as Reggie, Veronica, Jughead, Betty and, of course, Archie.

The series takes a subversive look at the familiar characters and the darker side of what is going on beneath the wholesome Riverdale image.

‘I think he kind of enjoys drama,’ Cott says of his TV alter-ego.

‘When you throw in the fact that there was a murder, all those relationships and dramatic instances are elevated.’

The Keller-centric trailer shows just how honest is.

He point blank tells Veronica (Camila Mendes): ‘Any other year you’d be trending number one for sure. This year though it’s all about Cheryl trying to win the best supporting psycho Oscar for her role as Riverdale High’s bereaved red widow.’

Of his ‘hot’ pal Archie he surmises: ‘Archie’s swell. But like most millennial straight guys, he has to be told what he wants.’
