Mark Consuelos was a popular choice, as onscreen wife Marisol Nichols said, "He knows people."
When the show returns, he'll face off against new cast member Penelope Ann Miller, who's playing the district attorney prosecuting our ginger haired hero for shady Shadow Lake kid Cassidy's killing.
Lili Reinhart joked she'd tell Camila Mendes, "Cami, why are you calling me?" if Mendes decided to ring her ... while Casey Cott, Ashleigh Murray and Marisol Nichols all felt Mark Consuelos wouldn't just answer the phone, he'd get them off the hook.

"I just feel like he could probably fix it ... and if he can't, he can scare people," said Murray.
It's clear Mark agreed. His answer: "I'd call myself."
"Riverdale" returns on Wednesday, October 10 on The CW.
