First Look at KJ Apa as Archie Andrews in Riverdale
JustJared provides a first look at the lead character for the live-action adaptation of Archie Comics, Archie Andrews.
Archie will be played by actor KJ Apa also present when the photo was taken was Cole Sprouse who plays the role of Jughead Jones.
More photos after the jump.
Interestingly enough they used the Archie that we’ve seen in the cover to the recently relaunched Archie # 1 book featuring the art of Fiona Staples.
Oh and if you haven’t read my old Riverdale casting post, you’d be surprised to know that Jughead and Archie are no longer best buds.
Also I miss the crown.
Riverdale is described as “a subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small-town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade.”
