Chad Michael Murray Joins Riverdale as A Cult Leader

The One Tree Hill star joins the town with pep as Edgar Evernever, father of Evelyn and cult leader of The Farm. A cult which counts Polly and Alice Cooper as dedicated members. It's been speculated that he'll spark a romance with Alice.

This was the casting breakdown for the character: [EDGAR EVERNEVER] Male, Late 30’s – Early 40’s, Open Ethnicity. A recent arrival in Riverdale with his daughter Evelyn, Edgar is a new-age health “guru” who has helped Alice get her life together after the events of Season Two. He’s attractive, in a neighborly way, and charismatic—a wise, comforting presence. (An actor with ‘90’s-2000’s pop-culture cachet is a plus.) MAJOR RECURRING GUEST STAR.
