'Riverdale' Stars Madelaine Petsch & Vanessa Morgan Share How They Became BFFs

Madelaine Petsch‘s best friend in the world is joining Riverdale, and she couldn’t be more excited about it!

In a new vlog, Madelaine talks with Vanessa Morgan, who will be playing Toni Topaz, one of Jughead’s first friends at Southside High.

Vanessa actually originally auditioned for the part of Josie, which is how she met Madelaine in the first place.

“We instantly became friends at the studio test and then at the network test we exchanged Instagrams,” Madelaine recalls.

What’s really remarkable is that even though Vanessa didn’t get the part of Josie, she still wanted to celebrate her new friend’s feat.

“She was so happy for me,” Madelaine said. “In fact, the first time we hung out was to congratulate me on booking the role.”

We can’t wait to watch V on the show! Vanessa has even said that she wants Toni to date Cheryl Blossom. Whatever happens, this new season will be wild.

Cole Sprouse is most definitely channeling his bad side in this behind-the-scenes Riverdale pic with Skeet Ulrich.

The on-screen father and son duo are rocking dark looks while posing next to a few motorcycles.

Cole spoke with EW about Jughead’s arc this coming season, saying that “he undergoes a kind of radical vulnerability and change.”

“His morality is going to be really tested. It’s one of those things where Jughead is the perspective character,” he adds. “We see the world through his lens. He’s the soul of Riverdale.”

“So in my own way and for the audience, whatever happens to Jughead can be seen as the world in total.”

Riverdale will premiere on Wednesday, October 11th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa & Camila Mendes Rock Jughead's Signature Beanie

Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa & Camila Mendes Rock Jughead's Signature Beanie

Jughead wouldn’t be Jughead without his crown beanie — but it turns out that the entire Riverdale cast can rock that thing.

Cole Sprouse snapped his cast mates in Jughead’s signature headgear on the set last night in Vancouver, Canada — and they all look so cool.

The beanie — a whoopee cap — actually has a really special meaning behind it with the series and the original comics. It was really popular with young people right around the time Jughead made his comic book debut in 1941.

Factory workers actually used to invert their felt fedoras and chop off the brims so their eyesight wouldn’t be restricted while working. When they got new hats, they’d pass their old hat down to their kids.

Check out Lili Reinhart, KJ Apa and Camila Mendes rocking the cap below:

WBTV Responds to KJ Apa Car Accident Reports, Clarifies Details

WBTV Responds to KJ Apa Car Accident Reports, Clarifies Details

We’re still in shock over the details surrounding KJ Apa‘s car accident last week, but we’re so glad that he was not injured! Now, more details revealing what actually happened have been released via Riverdale studio WBTV.

It was initially reported that KJ had fallen asleep behind the wheel following a 16-hour workday, but WBTV says he actually worked 14.2 hours. Also, the previous day was a workday of just 2.5 hours.

The accident spurred calls from cast and crew to change conditions on set and allow for them to receive car services when working late hours. WBTV says that there is already a policy in place for cast and crew to be provided with “a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request.”

“The safety of the cast and crew on all of our productions is of paramount importance to the Studio. Productions adhere to the Screen Actors Guild–mandated turnaround time of 12 hours from wrap time to next day call time for cast members,” WBTV said in the statement. “In accordance with industry standard policy, if any cast or crew member feels tired or unsafe at any time after working, the Studio will provide a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request. This is communicated to all cast and crew, both in writing and verbally, at the beginning of production and is reiterated continuously throughout the duration of production.”

First 'Riverdale' Season Two Pics Show Veronica Comforting Archie After His Father is Shot

First 'Riverdale' Season Two Pics Show Veronica Comforting Archie After His Father is Shot

Veronica and Archie share a sweet moment in the hospital in these first look photos from the season premiere of Riverdale.

The show picks up right after Fred gets shot — something that star KJ Apa was kind of nervous about taking on.

“To be fair, I read that first episode of the second season and I was thinking I don’t know if I’m good enough to do this,” KJ shared with EW recently.

He adds, “I’m a new actor. I’m new to this kind of material and I was cushioning myself. I really have learned a lot this season and I think I’ve shot some of the best stuff I’ve ever done.”

Camila Mendes adds of Veronica’s arc for the season to come: “She wants to be respected as a member of the family and neither Hiram nor Hermione [Marisol Nichols] are allowing to be part of that.”

They have a plan for Riverdale and they keep it very secret.”

Riverdale returns to The CW on Wednesday, October 10th @ 8PM ET/PT.

Riverdale's KJ Apa Fell Asleep at the Wheel & Crashed His Car After Long Workday

Riverdale's KJ Apa Fell Asleep at the Wheel & Crashed His Car After Long Workday

KJ Apa was in a car accident and we’re thankfully able to report that he did not sustain any serious injuries.

The 20-year-old had apparently worked a long, 16 hour day on the Riverdale set in Vancouver, Canada last week. He then had to drive 45 minutes back home and fell asleep at the wheel.

THR reports that KJ was taken to the hospital and thankfully discharged without any major injuries.

Cole Sprouse, KJ‘s co-star, was also reportedly supposed to be with him in the car but his plans changed at the last minute.

KJ‘s car sustained damage and is now unusable.

The publication is reporting that because of this serious incident, cast and crew are demanding better safety and protection. Cole has apparently asked the show’s producers to provide transportation to and from set during late hours, which actually goes against WBTV’s policy.

We’re so glad KJ is okay after this scary incident.
