"Working with dad was really awesome. We had a lot of fun, we had some great scenes together," he said.

"And it was really trippy because with the mustache he wears, he looks like my real-life grandfather. So it was a weird and surreal experience, but we had the best time."

Michael made his big debut playing the younger Hiram Lodge on Riverdale

The younger Consuelos talked more in the takeover about working with his father, and even mentioned that one of the things he wanted to do was not try and emulate his dad's performance and develop his individual style.

Kelly caused a stir of her own when she shared photos of the two sitting side-by-side before the new episode of Riverdale premiered.

Not only was the resemblance between the two ridiculously uncanny, but it was also the debut of Mark's mustache, which made an appearance for his cameo as another character on the show.
