KJ Apa Seen for First Time Since News of Car Accident

We’re so glad to see that KJ Apa is out there and doing well following his car accident last week!

We already saw pics of the 20-year-old Riverdale actor playing soccer over the weekend, but didn’t know the ordeal he went through days prior.

Now, KJ has been spotted while getting in a work out on Thursday (September 21) in Vancouver, Canada.

This is the first time that the 20-year-old actor has been spotted after news of him being involved in a car accident last week following a long night of filming Riverdale.

KJ reportedly was on set for a majority of the day and then fell asleep behind the wheel of his car on his 45 minute drive home. WBTV, the studio behind the show, released a lengthy statement clarifying the details surrounding what actually happened. We’re just glad that KJ is alright!

WBTV Responds to KJ Apa Car Accident Reports, Clarifies Details

We’re still in shock over the details surrounding KJ Apa‘s car accident last week, but we’re so glad that he was not injured! Now, more details revealing what actually happened have been released via Riverdale studio WBTV.

It was initially reported that KJ had fallen asleep behind the wheel following a 16-hour workday, but WBTV says he actually worked 14.2 hours. Also, the previous day was a workday of just 2.5 hours.

The accident spurred calls from cast and crew to change conditions on set and allow for them to receive car services when working late hours. WBTV says that there is already a policy in place for cast and crew to be provided with “a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request.”

“The safety of the cast and crew on all of our productions is of paramount importance to the Studio. Productions adhere to the Screen Actors Guild–mandated turnaround time of 12 hours from wrap time to next day call time for cast members,” WBTV said in the statement. “In accordance with industry standard policy, if any cast or crew member feels tired or unsafe at any time after working, the Studio will provide a taxi, a driver or a hotel room upon request. This is communicated to all cast and crew, both in writing and verbally, at the beginning of production and is reiterated continuously throughout the duration of production.”

Cole Sprouse Is Petitioning For Cast Transportation After KJ Apa's Accident; Just Like The 'Smallville' Cast Did For Tom Welling

Cole Sprouse Is Petitioning For Cast Transportation After KJ Apa's Accident; Just Like The 'Smallville' Cast Did For Tom Welling

We’re so thankful that KJ Apa is okay after a scary car crash that happened recently.

The Riverdale star was heading back to his hotel after a 16-hour day on the set, and fell asleep at the wheel.

Reports say that co-star Cole Sprouse is petitioning for the cast to have drivers available for them because of the long hours they work — something that Smallville stars Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum will probably support, since they did the same thing.

“All of us are driving to a location at 4:30 a.m. with one eye open and you’re in every scene,” Michael, who played Lex Luthor, revealed in a new podcast. “I think it got to a point where we all like signed a letter for you because we’re like ‘You’re going to kill Superman.’”

Tom adds, “[It was] Unbeknownst to me, because I was just told it was already done, but you all signed something, because we weren’t allowed to have drivers for some reason.”

He continued, “I was getting up at 4:30, driving an hour and a half, working an 18-hour day then driving back, sleeping five hours. And you guys were like, ‘Well, he’s gonna die. He’s gonna run into a tree and the show’s gonna be over.’ So you guys kind of gave up, you waived your rights to ‘If one had a driver, everybody had a driver.’ So, I got a driver and it was a big difference.”

We hope something will happen, because this shouldn’t have happened at all.

Riverdale's KJ Apa Fell Asleep at the Wheel & Crashed His Car After Long Workday

Riverdale's KJ Apa Fell Asleep at the Wheel & Crashed His Car After Long Workday

KJ Apa was in a car accident and we’re thankfully able to report that he did not sustain any serious injuries.

The 20-year-old had apparently worked a long, 16 hour day on the Riverdale set in Vancouver, Canada last week. He then had to drive 45 minutes back home and fell asleep at the wheel.

THR reports that KJ was taken to the hospital and thankfully discharged without any major injuries.

Cole Sprouse, KJ‘s co-star, was also reportedly supposed to be with him in the car but his plans changed at the last minute.

KJ‘s car sustained damage and is now unusable.

The publication is reporting that because of this serious incident, cast and crew are demanding better safety and protection. Cole has apparently asked the show’s producers to provide transportation to and from set during late hours, which actually goes against WBTV’s policy.

We’re so glad KJ is okay after this scary incident.

KJ Apa Expertly Trolls Cole Sprouse in Hilarious Instagram

KJ Apa Expertly Trolls Cole Sprouse in Hilarious Instagram

The ugly picture war may have been a draw, but KJ Apa is now firmly ahead in the KJ vs. Cole Sprouse trolling.

KJ uploaded an Instagram last night mocking his Riverdale co-star’s interview comments, jumbling together a number of things the actor has said in a nonsensical way.

He does this by uploading a video of his mouth on Cole‘s face, pretending he’s talking as him.

“Well, it’s funny that you say that because Jughead uses humor as a defense mechanism,” KJ says (pretending to be Cole.) “The nostalgia is really film noir and it’s effective in that way.”

“The product is just absolutely involuntary … it’s condescending, if anything,” his parody continues. “But my main concern – and it has always been my main concern – is that we don’t break fourth wall.”

As for the Instagram caption? “Cole Sprouse on Jughead Jones. Spot on I reckon.”

Watch (and laugh) below. Judging by the comments, Lili Reinhart and Dylan Sprouse both approve.

Cole Sprouse on Jughead Jones. Spot on I reckon.

Camila Mendes Talks Varchie on 'Riverdale': 'They've Definitely Been Friskier'

Camila Mendes Talks Varchie on 'Riverdale': 'They've Definitely Been Friskier'

While Bughead may be on the rocks a bit on Riverdale, Varchie is heating up.

Camila Mendes didn’t waste any time in saying that Veronica and Archie are “even more sexual now” in season two, while chatting with EW.

She adds, “Death brings out certain passions or thirst for life. So they’ve definitely been friskier.”

However, that doesn’t mean that’s all this couple is about: “I think now because of all this darkness and stuff in Archie’s life and Veronica’s as well, their relationship does feel more grounded,” Camila says.

“It has more substance than just physical.”

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says about this couple that “it’s sort of a bit more primal and volatile than say Jughead and Betty are.”

Riverdale returns on Wednesday, October 11th on The CW.

Cole Sprouse Dishes On Impact of 'Bughead' in 'Entertainment Weekly's Fall TV Preview Issue

The cast of Riverdale heats up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.

The core four — KJ Apa, Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse — pose together on the cover of the Fall TV Preview issue, a cover which they won with a ton of fan votes.

The cast opens up in the issue about the upcoming season ahead, with Cole touching about the impact of Bughead.

“Since the show began, people have wanted Lili and I to be together. People have wanted Lili and Camila to be together. People have wanted KJ and I to be together. People have wanted every actor on this show to be in a union that they could make real…” he says.

Cole adds, “But truthfully, it’s very pleasing that people talk about Lili and I in that way because it means that we’re resonating so strongly that people really want that to be true.”

Riverdale returns on October 11th on The CW, and the issue is on newsstands THIS Friday, September 15th.
