“Congratulations Michael on being cast as young Hiram Lodge on @thecwriverdalehowever,” 47-year-old Ripa wrote on Instagram on Saturday, August 11. She also took the opportunity to make a joke, adding, “@instasuelos and i would like to take this opportunity to remind you and your siblings that as your fiduciaries we are hereby entitled to 10% of all future earnings hereto wit, or something like that.”

The LIVE With Kelly and Ryan host was also quick to defend him when a follower commented, “I guess he does not go to school.”

“He’s in college. He’s on summer break,” the daytime personality quipped.

Michael’s role as the younger version of his father’s character was announced on Friday, August 10. He will appear in the fourth episode of season 3.

As showrunner Roberto Aguire-Saccasa revealed at the Television Critics Association 2018 summer press tour, the episode, titled The Midnight Club and inspired by the 1985 cult classic film The Breakfast Club, will be a revealing one. “We are going to learn about a really, really dark secret in Riverdale that the parents have been keeping since they were in high school,” he said at the event.

The rest of the adults, sans for Hal Cooper, will be played by their onscreen children.
