RIVERDALE (The CW) - Graham Phillips has been tapped for a two-episode arc as Veronica's (Camila Mendes) ex, Nick St. Clair, "an old classmate of Veronica's from New York, and despite his parent-pleasing veneer, he is a wolf in sheep's clothing: a hard-partying Lothario with dark desires and an unchecked sense of privilege." (EW.com)
