Two iconic Archie Comics characters are joining the world of Katy Keene. Deadline Hollywood is reporting Lucien Laviscount and Camille Hyde have joined the cast of The CW’s upcoming Riverdale spinoff series.
Laviscount will play Alexander Cabot, described as “the CEO of his father’s company who dreams of rebooting its dormant record label division” who takes a strong liking to one Josie McCoy.
Hyde is set to play Alexander’s sister, Alexandra, described as “a powerful, savvy and chic New York socialite who is an SVP at her father’s company.” who has a much different view of the record label than her brother.
This will mark the live-action small screen debut of Alexander and Alexandra Cabot, who first appeared in the pages of Archie Comics in the 1960s.
Written by Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi and directed by Maggie Kiley, Katy Keene follows the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters — including fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene and singer-songwriter Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) — as they chase their twentysomething dreams in New York City. The musical dramedy based on the Archie Comics chronicles the origins and struggles of four aspiring artists trying to make it on Broadway, on the runway and in the recording studio.
