Chances are, you've started seeing Charles Melton just about everywhere lately. I mean, how could you miss those impossibly chiseled cheek bones? Whether you recognize him as the bouncer at La Bonne Nuit in Riverdale or that guy from Ariana Grande's new music video, one thing is for sure: Melton isn't going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, he's just getting started.
Who is this mysteriously handsome actor, and what else can you expect to see him in? Read on to learn more.
Charles Melton, who plays Reggie Mantle on Riverdale, is having a moment.
Melton came on for season two of the Archie Comics-inspired show to replace Ross Butler as the quintessential jock Reggie Mantle.
Before Riverdale, you might have seen Melton on another spooky show: American Horror Story.
Melton played the role of Mr. Wu in season five (Hotel) of American Horror Story in 2015. His character appeared in two episodes and ended up getting slaughtered by two blonde Swedish girls who died in the first episode.
His first credited acting role came just a year before that on Fox's Glee.
Melton was in Season 5, Episode 14 of Glee (titled "New New York"). Prior to appearing on the show, Melton admitted Glee was his favorite show and that he was a "Gleek."
In the video, Melton grabs Grande's attention from across a crowded night club, and she goes full on Single White Female on him and his girlfriend.
There's no explanation yet on why Grande chose Melton to star in the video, but we'll definitely keep you updated if she spills the details.
We can't wait to see what Melton does next!
While we wait, however, we can continue to watch his shenanigans as Mr. Mantle for the rest of season three and the upcoming season four on Riverdale.
