Riverdale Shocker: Major Character to Be Recast in Season 2

Tryouts are now open for a new Bulldog. 

Ross Butler will not be returning to Riverdale for its second season, E! News has confirmed. However, fans will still be seeing his character Reggie in the hallways of Riverdale High as the role will be recast. 

“We love what Ross did with the role of Reggie [this season], but because of his commitments to other projects, we couldn’t use him nearly as much as we would have liked,” Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said. “[Next season], we want more Reggie on our show — he’s Archie’s rival! — and because Ross is unavailable to come back to Riverdale, we’re looking for a new Reggie. Those are big shoes to fill, but we’re confident we can find an actor who is as funny and sexy as Ross. And of course we all wish Ross the best.”

Hm…something  tells us this has to do with the success of Butler’s other teen drama, 13 Reasons Why, which has become the most-tweeted about TV show of the year since its March 31 debut on Netflix. While 13 Reasons has yet to be picked up for a second season, it seems likely the Selena Gomez-produced show will come back. Still, Butler wasn’t offering up any scoop when he visited E! News.

“I don’t know anything, to be honest,” Butler told us of a potential season two. “I don’t know anything!”

TV Line first reported the news of Butler’s exit from Riverdale

In other season two casting news for the breakout hit, Mark Consueloshas been cast as Veronica’s imprisoned dad, Hiram Lodge. If his Fox show Pitch isn’t picked up for a second season, he would join Riverdale as a series regular. 

Riverdale airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on the CW. 13 Reasons Why is currently streaming on Netflix.

Ashley Graham Takes a Tumble at the Time 100 Gala 2017 Red Carpet

Just because you are dressed to the nines, doesn’t mean you can’t almost fall flat on your face!

Ashley Graham learned the hard way that trying to walk while striking a pose doesn’t always work when a barrage of shutterbugs are snapping your photo. Earlier tonight, the model nearly took a tumble when her heel caught on the back of her dress as she attempted to slink down the red carpet at the 2017 Time 100 Gala at Frederick P. Rose Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City.

The 29-year-old gasped when she was a step away from face planting, but was able to catch herself before she hit the floor. The brunette beauty had a good attitude about it, laughing after the red carpet flub.

The plus-sized model, who was joined by her husband Justin Ervin, donned a skimpy, low-plunging black gown, which was cinched at the waist with a corset, so we’re just happy her ample curves didn’t pop out!

Other celebs who hit the red carpet (but maybe not quite so hard) for the mag’s event honoring the 100 most influential people of the year were Blake Lively, who looked amazing in Marchesa, Ryan ReynoldsRonan Farrow, Mia FarrowMargot Robbie, Sarah Paulson, Viola Davis and Demi Lovato, who turned heads in Zuhair Murad.

The impressive list of honorees also includesJohn Legend, Viola Davis, Simone Biles, Emma Stone, Ed Sheeran James Corden and many more. Congrats to everyone who was honored this year!
