Default Hiram Lodge casting suggestions?

We all knew he would be coming if the show had a future beyond Season 1, and now it does, so... any thoughts?

I think they've done a good job thus far of getting stars that did "Teen" genre work to play the parents-- 90210 for Perry, John Hughes movies for Molly Ringwald, Scream for Skeet Ulrich, you could even say Twin Peaks for Madchen Amick-- but I can't really think of a latino actor that falls into that category, except like Freddie Prinze Jr. and he seems too young to me.

you know you gotta point there-- it looks like they're casting the parents from actors who have done notable '80s / '90s franchises. Robin Givens (the Mayor and Josie's mom) is from Head of the Class


anyway about Daddy Lodge, idk if the actor has to be Latino, but i was hoping he could have a bit more salt than pepper in his hair Daddykins is as much a main fixture on the Archie franchise as Veronica is, arguably the most prominent parent in the comics, so i was hoping they could really nail his look the way they have with the main characters.

also for some reason, the show made me think that Hiram Lodge could be older than the any of the parental units we've seen thus far, so the range of actors to look into could widen.

how about '80's sitcom vets? Bronson Pinchot, Scott Baio, Tony Danza? i'd throw in John Stamos too if he could spare the time from Scream Queens duties.

I think Anthony Michael Hall would be quite fitting.

As a nod to classic teen fare (Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club), a bookend to Molly Ringwald being cast as Archie's mom, and being a good fit for the tone of the show and what we know so far about Hiram, just think he checks the right boxes.

Anthony Michael Hall would be my pick too or Benjamin Bratt if they go latino.

Given that the show is kinda Twin Peaks+ Dawson's Creek, with the former already represented, I suggest Kerr Smith from Dawson's Creek. Isn't Latino, though.

Going by the 80s theme, Emilio Estevez.

But judging by his IMDB page, it doesn't look like he has done any acting in the last 5 years.
