Philips will play Veronica's (Camila Mendes) ex-boyfriend, Nick St. Clair, on the Archie Comics drama. The cast also includes KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Luke Perry, Mädchen Amick, Marisol Nichols, Casey Cott, and Madelaine Petsch.
Executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says that Nick, an old classmate of Veronica's from her time in NY, does not have a personality to match his "parent-pleasing" appearance.

It is my old club, with my old fans in my old stadium so probably I can not celebrate. If he plays as fast as he talks then it is going to be very exciting for West Ham.
Riverdale season 2 will be scarier than the first, with a mystery that threatens the safety of Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica from the first episode, according to showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. However, according to a new report, another fan-favorite couple - Archie and Veronica - are going to be facing some new complications, in the form of Veronica's former flame from NY. (EW.com had the casting news first.) Phillips will appear in two episodes next season (which debuts October 11 at 9/8c), as Nick looks to make Veronica's life a bit more complicated while her new romance with Archie is just getting started. As such, we have a feeling that his fragile relationship with Veronica may not survive anthey pressure and tension that Nick brings when he arrives in town.
Will Nick's appearance have her reverting to her old ways?
