Veronica, Josie and Archie Andrews Have Been Cast in The CW’s ‘Riverdale’

Feb 27, 2016

Deadline is reporting that the several more names have joined the cast of The CW’s Riverdale reboot. This is a reboot series based on the classic Archie Comics. After a worldwide search 18 year old New Zealander KJ Apa has been cast as the lead Archie Andrews. Also, joined the cast is Ashleigh Murray as Josie from Joise and the Pussycats. Lastly, Camila Mendes was cast as a regular Veronica Lodge. They join fellow cast members Cole Sprouse as Jughead and Lili Reinhart as Betty.

Here are some character descriptions for these new additions:

Archie Andrews is an intense, conflicted teen, a boyish high school sophomore who got pumped up over the summer working construction and is now juggling the interest of several girls, as well as trying to balance his passion for writing and performing music — against the wishes of his father and his football coach.

Intelligent and confident Veronica Lodge is a silver-tongued high school sophomore who returns to Riverdale from New York, eager to reinvent herself after a scandal involving her father.

Josie is a gorgeous, snooty and ambitious girl who is the lead singer for popular band Josie and the Pussycats. She has zero interest in recording any songs written by fellow teen Archie.
