Dear Gossips,

Um.

They’re making an Archie TV show.

Deadline reports that Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) is involved and that if all goes to plan, the show will be called Riverdale and it will air on FOX.

I know my reaction is supposed to be all, “F-ck this, how DARE they mess with Archie” but… I think I might be into it. Apparently Riverdale will be about small town life, the darkness underneath it, and, of course, high school love triangles and rivalries. Archie, Veronica, Betty, Reggie, Jughead, and Josie and the Pussycats are all expected. It’s Gossip Girl, Heathers, and Twin Peaks all at the same time. Possibly.

What’s the problem???

Fine. You hate the idea. Or maybe you don’t give a sh-t. Maybe you weren’t into Archie Comics the way I was when I was a kid – and still now. Now I take Archie to the bathroom and, frankly, that’s an honour. Everybody knows bathroom reading is carefully curated.

So let me know. Would you watch Archie on television? Are you angry that Archie is coming to television? And also, one of the most important questions in pop culture, the question that well preceded Jen or Angelina…

Are you Betty or Veronica?

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Pacey & Riggins

Joshua Jackson and Taylor Kitsch were at the GQ Gentleman’s Ball in New York last night. I’m not wrong in saying that you’re into the Pacey+Riggins combination, right? I’m not the only one, right? Or is it because both have Vancouver roots and so do I? Whatever. I’m forcing you to look at it even if you don’t care. Full Story

This is what Seth Rogen tweeted a couple of weeks ago: I wonder which of today's popular film actors will be on procedural cop dramas in 20 years? You can interpret it a dozen different ways. But you don’t have to be of a certain age to try out television anymore. Full Story

It was announced yesterday that Barry Levinson will direct the pilot for Jennifer Lopez’s new TV show Shades Of Blue which went straight to series, 13 episodes, shooting in the summer. She plays Harlee, a single mom FBI agent working undercover. My first thought was… JLO’s going to tussle again. Full Story

Deadline reported yesterday that NBC was moving ahead with a TV show based on Say Anything. It’s 10 years later but also 2014. (I don’t understand either, but OK.) Lloyd is single because Diane dumped him but now she’s coming back into town and he tries to get her back. Full Story

I saw this late Friday afternoon and heard a loud record scratch in my head—Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston are going to star in a television adaptation of John le Carre’s The Night Manager. The show will air on the BBC in the UK and though it does not yet have a US broadcaster, it won’t have any problem getting picked up on this side of the pond. Full Story

Is everyone on the Chris Pratt train at this point? Is there anyone left uncharmed? Does anyone object to Pratt becoming a Movie Star? As I predicted back in January, Pratt blew up huge this year, and this weekend he capped his breakout year by hosting Saturday Night Live, and this was not just any episode. Full Story

Variety reported today that Rachel McAdams is very close to signing on to True Detective season 2. Her name came up after Elisabeth Moss was rumoured, and then they apparently ended up auditioning several other actors because of a scheduling conflict; she’s also working on a film called Spotlight and they had to negotiate so that she could take on True Detective without giving that up. Full Story

One of the earliest rumours about the True Detective Season 2 casting was that Ellen Page and Kate Mara would replace Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. I was excited about that. I didn’t really care for Season 1 but if they’d set it up like that for Season 2, I was in. Didn’t happen. Full Story
