Though we didn’t have an idea of who would be cast in Riverdale, we have to admit that we never saw this one coming. But then again we never had any idea who New Zealander KJ Apa was. But we’re going to now – cause he has been cast as Archie in the adaptation of the comics for TV.
Also cast was Ashleigh Murray as Josie of Josie and the Pussycats fame.
Archie is described as, “conflicted” high school sophomore who has recently bulked up (thanks, summer construction work!) and is interested in 1) girls and 2) writing and performing music, much to the chagrin of his dad (played by Beverly Hills, 90210‘s Luke Perry) and football coach.”
We’re excited for the possibility of Riverdale making it to series.
Now off to learn everything we can about KJ Apa.
