Riverdale Pilot Finds Its Betty and Jughead

bettyjugheadDeadline reports The CW‘s upcoming pilot for Riverdale, based on Archie Comics characters, has found its Betty and Jughead.

Surviving Jack‘s Lili Reinhart will play Betty Cooper, described in a previous breakdown as liking Adderall and tiring of being the perfect student. Her fatigue will lead her to form a friendship with new arrival Veronica.

Cole Sprouse, of The Disney Channel‘s The Suite Life with Zack and Cody will play Jughead, described as a heartthrob who will be on the outs with best friend Archie as the pilot begins.

The pilot, from Flash and Arrow mastermind Greg Berlanti, will see the Archie gang updated to modern day with current troubles and surreal undercurrents in the seemingly perfect small town of Riverdale.

It is still unclear if or when the project will go to series.
