Actor Sam Witwer is staying in The CW multiverse.
Comicbook.com reports the former Supergirl foe will recur in the fourth season of Riverdale as Mr. Chipping, a teacher at a “prestigious school” which will become the focus of Jughead’s (Cole Sprouse) ire in the coming year. The character will find himself at this new school and once again away from his Riverdale High pals. According to the official description, Mr. Chipping is “handsome, bookish and cool.” He is the teacher of the prep school’s creative writing seminar, and while he’s eminently inspiring to his students, “there’s a darkness hidden far beneath the surface.”
I guess we have a our first suspect for whatever masked murderer invades Riverdale this season.
Witwer will be familiar to fans of Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and the most recent season of Supergirl, where he played the easily duped Ben Lockwood. The would-be Agent Liberty turned out to be a stooge in the designs of Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer), but managed to see the error of his ways and help out the team before the end.
Riverdale returns October 9th on The CW.
