‘Riverdale’ Star K.J. Apa Signs With UTA (Exclusive)

The CW’s new Archie also can be seen on a large shade in ‘A Dog’s Purpose.’

Riverdale star K.J. Apa has sealed with UTA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. He formerly was with WME.

The visitor portrays Archie Andrews on Riverdale, The CW’s dim take on a classical comic book series, that premieres Thursday night. On Friday, Apa can be seen in theaters as good in A Dog’s Purpose, where he stars as a teenage chronicle of a impression Ethan, whose bond with a suggested dog is a film’s throughline.

It’s an American double entrance for a New Zealand native, who got his start on a Auckland City-set soap show Shortland Street and afterwards was a unchanging on final year’s internal sci-fi array The Cul De Sac.

Apa continues to be repped by Red11 Management in New Zealand and by Luber Roklin.
