Teen drama Riverdale has brought Mark Consuelos a new generation of fans, who know him for his portrayal of shady gangster and sometimes antagonist Hiram Lodge. Consuelos has been a firm part of the show since season two when he made his debut in earnest. Since then, Hiram had had some major storylines in Riverdale.
Not only did he ingratiate Archie Andrews (played by KJ Apa) into his business, he later tried to kill him when the teen took him on.
Hiram eventually called a truce with Archie after he was shot and close to death.
The mobster and father of Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) later got his comeuppance when he became a prisoner in his own jail after his misdeeds were exposed.
Just where Hiram will go next when The CW series returns remains to be seen but with the five-year time-jump, it looks like there could be a major development in the character.
