Dream Casting Betty Cooper's Long-Lost Brother on 'Riverdale'

Dream Casting Betty Cooper's Long-Lost Brother on 'Riverdale'

At the end of the Riverdale season finale, it was revealed that Betty Cooper had a long lost brother.

Alice Cooper told her youngest daughter that she had gotten pregnant in high school and gave her child up for adoption.

In the comics, Betty had an older brother named Chic, but showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa isn’t revealing if that’s his name or not.

In the ep, Betty figured out that her secret brother is in his 20s, so…with only that to go on, JJJ‘s dream casted the role.

Social Media Could Have An Influence On 'Riverdale's Stories in Season Two

Social Media Could Have An Influence On 'Riverdale's Stories in Season Two

Riverdale season two is about to kick off filming in just a month.

Star Camila Mendes opened up recently about what’s ahead on the series and suggested that social media could have an impact on the stories they tell this time.

“With things like Twitter, we can touch base and see what they like and what they don’t like,” she shared with EW.

She adds, “So I think going into season 2 we really know what people are interested in. Now that we’ve put it out there in the world, we can expand on it and go darker and deeper.”

Camila also shared that she loves dark Archie, played by KJ Apa.

“I like that there’ll be a new darkness to Archie,” she shared. “I think it’s going to add a lot of edge to his character and some depth.”

TELL JJJ: Now that you know social media could influence the show, what kind of storylines do you want to see?

KJ Apa's 'Riverdale' Audition Wasn't A Typical Audition

KJ Apa's 'Riverdale' Audition Wasn't A Typical Audition

When KJ Apa auditioned for Riverdale, he did something that not a lot of people would actually do — he played a song.

“I don’t know if it was essential that the character needed to play the guitar or be somewhat musical,” the New Zealand-born actor shared in a recent interview about going out for Archie. “But it was scripted in the pilot that he likes to write music and stuff.”

KJ continues, “I remember in the screen test I took my guitar and just casually walked in. I told them I was going to play them a song before I did the scene. They didn’t really have a choice and I just did it. (laughs)”

He adds, “I knew it was something that they would like to see.”

We’re thinking this is something that definitely won him the role.

If you missed the news, KJ will actually be honored with the Breakthrough Performance Award at the Saturn Awards this year.

He and Riverdale are also up for a few other awards as well!

Madelaine Petsch Puts On Her Red Nails For 'Riverdale' Season 2

Next month, the cast of Riverdale will be all back together again — and Madelaine Petsch is ready!

The actress, who plays Cheryl Blossom on the CW series, is all ready to become Cheryl again after showing off her ruby red nails on Instagram.

“Back to red, you know what that means,” Madelaine typed over the photo.

Just the day before, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa shared the first look at the premiere episode title.

The season premiere episode will be called, “Chapter Fourteen: #A Kiss Before Dying” — and the pictured used on the first draft is very, very interesting — a spilled milkshake.

Riverdale will return on Wednesdays this fall on The CW.

Riverdale's Madelaine Petsch Has Some Season Two Advice For Cheryl

Riverdale's Madelaine Petsch Has Some Season Two Advice For Cheryl

If Madelaine Petsch could give her Riverdale character advice going into the second season, what would it be?

We recently asked the 22-year-old actress what she would tell Cheryl.

“Try to lighten up. And not be so judgemental of yourself,” Madelaine said. “And love yourself. And go seek help because she needs it.”

We also asked her what she’d like to see in season 2 when it comes to the relationship with her mom.

“I really hope they go head-to-head,” she told JJJ. “Her mom needs to be put down. She’s an awful woman. She’s terrible! I’d like to see Cheryl put her in her place.”

In case you missed it, Madelaine also said she wants Cheryl to explore her sexuality!

Riverdale's Madelaine Petsch Hopes Cheryl Explores Her Sexuality in Season Two

Riverdale's Madelaine Petsch Hopes Cheryl Explores Her Sexuality in Season Two

Could Cheryl be getting a love interest on Riverdale?!

JJJ recently caught up with Madelaine Petsch and she hinted that perhaps Cheryl will find love next season – but it won’t come easy.

“It’s a little Grey Gardens-esque in season two, I think. Due to all the bad things that happen to Cheryl in season one, she’s putting walls up,” Madelaine told us. “She’s absolutely going to be colder and meaner too. She feels like she has nobody at this point, which is so depressing. I hope she explores a love interest and explores sexuality a little bit more – and isn’t necessarily vanilla – and wants to explore all grounds of sexuality. That would be interesting to see.”

“I’m excited about her having a love interest, but also just her finding someone that loves her, just like a friend, whatever,” she added. “She needs love so badly, it would be nice to see her get that.”

As for Cheryl’s “friends” (or lack thereof), Madelaine told JJJ, “I think she wants more than anything to be a part of that group, and they want to include her, but you saw her ego is so big and she’s so afraid of being hurt.”

Riverdale returns this fall.

KJ Apa & Luke Perry Dish On If Fred Survives For 'Riverdale' Season 2

KJ Apa & Luke Perry Dish On If Fred Survives For 'Riverdale' Season 2

The cast of Riverdale gathers together for a stunning group shot at the 2017 Vulture Festival in New York City on Saturday (May 20).

The cast — KJ Apa, Luke Perry, Marisol Nichols, Casey Cott, Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch and Lili Reinhart — chatted up their show just days after the CW Upfronts.

KJ spoke to EOnline about that frightful finale, which found dad Fred (Perry), bleeding out in his arms after being shot — and he doesn’t know if Fred will actually survive.

“Fred living or dying is still unclear,” he shared. “whether or not he does live or die, Archie’s life is about to change, for sure.”

But Luke has some faith in showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

“I have a lot of trust in him. I’m happy to go wherever he takes me. If he kills me, he kills me. If he don’t, he don’t!”

But, we NEED Fred in all of season two!
