Well, yes and no. The real struggle is always art versus commerce.
— Myles to Fred Andrews[src]

Myles McCoy is a guest starring character on Riverdale. He is portrayed by Reese Alexander

He is the father of Josie McCoy and the husband of Sierra McCoy. Myles is an overbearing if distant father, much to Josie's dismay.

Early LifeEdit

It is currently unknown whether or not Myles grew up in Riverdale, but he at least spent a great deal of time there, having married and had a child with Sierra McCoy, a daughter who they named Josephine, after the French singer, Josephine Baker.

For a long time, Myles struggled with a drug addiction.

Throughout RiverdaleEdit

Season 1Edit

Variety ShowEdit

Initially out of town, Myles returned to see Josie and the Pussycats perform at the 75th annual Variety Show.

Season 1 Episode 6 Six Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill! Myles Sierra 5

Myles and Sierra at the Variety show

In the days leading up to the event, he joined Josie, and his wife, Sierra for dinner with Fred Andrews, his son Archie Andrews, and the host of that evening's dinner, Hermione Lodge. With him being a professional jazz player, Fred asked if he was living his dream, to which Myles replied, yes and no, the real struggle is always art vs commerce. He was disappointed to learn that Valerie Brown quit the Pussycats, she was the real deal, giving the group some much needed integrity. It's more than just about having fun, which is what he explained to Fred, then addressing Josie by her first name, that being Josephine, she was named after Josephine Baker, and to no surprise of his own, Archie had no idea who that was. After dinner, they sat in on Fred's proposal for the vacant land, a proposal that led Myles to believe Fred was just another "dollar chasing gentrifier".

The night of the Variety Show had arrived, he and Sierra sat in the audience as the Pussycats performed their song, Myles was undoubtedly unimpressed, so much so that he left the event before the Pussycats even finished their performance.[1]

Physical AppearanceEdit

Myles is a tall, middle-aged man with a lean, but athletic build. He has a dark brown skin, a shaved head, dark brown eyes with a greying, trimmed beard. He's also a well dressed man, who happens to be quite fond of fedoras.


Myles is a direct and intolerant man. He speaks what's on his mind without the fear of consequences, telling Fred Andrews that he was just another dollar chasing gentrifier. Despite being a man of music, even naming his daughter after the late singer and entertainer, Josephine Baker, Myles has no love for Josie and the Pussycats, or their style of music, which he refers to as Pop music. However, he is admittedly quite impressed with Valerie Brown, and the talent she brought to the group. Beyond, that he sees Josie pursuit as a pointless waste of time, demonstrated when he walked out of her performance during the Variety Show.
