Even millennial-driven TV dramas need a couple of Hollywood veterans on board. That’s exactly what the fans of Riverdale are going to get once Season 3 officially premieres since Gina Gershon just joined the cast.
Gershon’s casting was announced during New York Comic Con where stars of the show participated in a panel discussion in front of thousands of fans. Gershon was cast as Gladys Jones, mother of Jughead Jones, played by Cole Sprouse.
Gladys never appeared on the series because she moved to Toledo with her daughter Jellybean, after she got fed up with her husband’s drunken antics. She was described as a shady businesswoman, who previously worked at a call center so she could save enough money to pay for her GED classes.
Gina Gershon was head over heels to get this role, since she spent her childhood reading Archie Comics that this series is based on. Fans won’t have to wait for long to see what she brings to the table – Riverdale is coming back on October 10.
