As you know – we love the DC Comic genre. We don’t normally fall outside of those comics, but who doesn’t love the Archie Comics? We know we do. That’s why we were pleased when it was announced that there would be a TV show based on the Archie Comics.
Riverdale is one step closer to becoming a reality as Betty and Jughead have been cast in the adaptation based on the comics.
Cole Sprouse has been cast as Jughead. You may remember him from the hit series, Suite Life on Deck. The character is described as, “heartthrob with a philosophical bent and former best friend of Archie Andrews. He is still smarting from the rift that took place between the two.”
Lili Reinhart has been cast as Betty. Betty is described as, “sweet, studious, eager-to-please and wholesome with a huge crush on her longtime best friend, Archie. Tired of being the perfect daughter, student, sister, etc., she turns to her new friend, Veronica, for life advice — much to the consternation of her emotionally brittle mother.”
Riverdale, from Greg Berlanti, is vying for a spot on The CW’s 2015-2016 schedule.
