Meet The Characters of The CW’s “Riverdale” in their Character Portraits

The CW has released the character portraits for its upcoming teen drama series Riverdale, based on the Archie comics led by K.J. Apa (A Dog’s Purpose) as Archie Andrews.

Check out the portraits below:

“As a new school year begins, the town of Riverdale is reeling from the recent, tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom — and nothing feels the same… Archie Andrews is still the all-American teen, but the summer’s events made him realize that he wants to pursue a career in music — not follow in his dad’s footsteps—despite the sudden end of his forbidden relationship with Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy. Which means Archie doesn’t have anyone who will mentor him — certainly not singer Josie McCoy, who is only focused on her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats. It’s all weighing heavily on Archie’s mind — as is his fractured friendship with budding writer and fellow classmate Jughead Jones. Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper is anxious to see her crush Archie after being away all summer, but she’s not quite ready to reveal her true feelings to him. And Betty’s nerves – which are hardly soothed by her overbearing mother Alice aren’t the only thing holding her back. When a new student, Veronica Lodge, arrives in town from New York with her mother Hermione, there’s an undeniable spark between her and Archie, even though Veronica doesn’t want to risk her new friendship with Betty by making a play for Archie. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom… Riverdale’s Queen Bee is happy to stir up trouble amongst Archie, Betty, and Veronica, but Cheryl is keeping secrets of her own. What, exactly, is she hiding about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows… “


“Riverdale” is set to premiere on The CW on January 26, 2017. Starring K.J. Apa as Archie, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Camila Mendez as Veronica Lodge, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Madelaine Petsch as Cherry Blossom and Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy.

Piolo Pascual All Set For An Exciting 2017

Dubbed as the ultimate heartthrob, Piolo Jose Pascual or popularly known as Piolo or Papa Pi is having his 40th birthday this January 12, 2017. Just as many stars’ luster are starting to wane at this point in their lives, Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual’s career is going full throttle as characterized by his different and far challenging projects.

Although he hopes to slow down a bit in order to appreciate life even more, Piolo, who’s turning a year older this coming January 12, couldn’t help but be excited about the dream projects that he’s hoping to cross off his bucketlist.

“I want to travel the region, just in case there’s a chance for me to showcase Filipino talents not just here but also abroad,” he said.

According to Piolo, he wants to tap the international market, not necessarily Hollywood, but other markets such as lifestyle.

Mid last year, Piolo embarked on his first lifestyle food show titled “The Crawl” together with actor Lui Villaruz. The first season had them eating their way around Osaka, Japan. Its success led to an immediate follow up season, which Piolo undertook with his son Iñigo in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

“I get excited doing things that I’ve not done before. Basically delving into things I never thought I could do,” he said adding that he also hopes to do a different kind of serye soon.

Aside from hopefully fulfilling his dream projects, fans can expect to see him in the big screen soon with “Once in a Lifetime” opposite Yen Santos where they shot portions of it in New Zealand.

Almost three years since he last came out with his studio album “Decades III,” the singing heartthrob recently launched his Piolo Greatest Themes Album.

Amid all the upcoming projects and his goal, Piolo just couldn’t help but be grateful with the trust that he received and is still continuously receiving from the network for the last 20 years of being in the business.

“I can never be more thankful. I’m just really happy that they didn’t just change my life, they’ve changed my whole track, my entire journey in life and I’m just really humbled by it,” he said.

Despite being one of the most celebrated actors in the business, Piolo intends to stay as low-key as possible, which happens to be a far cry to his known tag as the “number one leading man” and “ultimate heartthrob.”

“It’s not for me to say. Being in this business for a long time it’s a blessing already. To be on top, I mean that’s a sense of entitlement. I’ll never hold on to something that is fleeting. As long as I know I’m enjoying my life and I’m able to do things that I enjoy doing, that’s okay by me,” he ended.

This coming Valentine’s Day, Piolo has something for his fans and for the love birds as his latest film with Yen Santos titled “Once in A Lifetime” gets to be released, watch Piolo as he talks about their upcoming movie:

Get to see a different side of the Ultimate Heartthrob and his enviable bachelor’s pad as the January 2017 cover star of Star Studio magazine.
