Lili Reinhart Discusses Transitioning to More Age Appropriate Roles

Even though Riverdale still has one more season to go, several of the actors are already considering what comes after The CW show. After Riverdale, Lili Reinhart, whose new film Look Both Ways recently debuted on Netflix, is prepared to go past the position of a teenage girl and anticipates exploring more appropriate parts.

A Little Sneak Peek

The most recent guest on the Happy Sad Confused podcast was Lili Reinhart, who talked about her role as Betty Cooper on Riverdale and what she plans to do once the show ends next season. The actress gave a sneak peek at the kinds of parts she’ll be doing soon, though she didn’t go into all the specifics.

“I have a lot of sort of dramatic, deep roles in my future after Riverdale. Definitely, roles that you have not seen me in — I’m an adult! I’m an adult woman, and I’m going to start playing those more adult roles.”

Reinhart has shown in the past that she’s versatile by playing characters that have absolutely nothing in common with those she plays on Riverdale. In the film Hustlers in 2019, she gave a performance as a stripper, demonstrating that she’s capable of playing more adult roles. After acting the part of a teenager far into her 20s, she could be more than ready to move on to other things.

In the meanwhile, if Lili Reinhart’s Netflix film is any indicator, she’ll succeed in parts that are more grownup after Riverdale. Look Both Ways is the top movie on Netflix as of August 19 and follows two distinct versions of Reinhart’s character, one of whom is pregnant and raises a family while the other relocates to Los Angeles with her closest friend to try to break into the animation industry. It’s good to see her in other parts, and we’re eager to see that continue once she finishes playing Betty Cooper, especially if it means she can finally play an adult. September marks Lili Reinhart’s 26th birthday.

It’s not unheard of for an older actor to play the role of a young person; nonetheless, it may get tiresome after it’s been done for a long time. After the conclusion of Riverdale‘s seventh season, the actors will be able to pursue other opportunities in the entertainment industry. Given that the characters will not only be seen to be adolescents once more but also transported to the 1950s, which is crazy even for Riverdale, it should be interesting to see how everything turns out this season.

The CW will air Riverdale‘s seventh and final season in the middle of 2023.

Manti Te’o Appearance in a New Catfishing Hoax Documentary on Netflix

One of the most talked-about incidents in recent college football history will be the subject of a new Netflix documentary. The sports documentary series UNTOLD on Netflix will focus on the life of Manti Te’o, a former star of the football team at Notre Dame who made headlines a decade ago when it was revealed he had been the victim of a catfishing scheme.

About the Documentary

The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist, a two-part documentary about Te’o and how he discovered that Lennay Kekua, his alleged girlfriend, who he believed had passed away from leukemia during his senior football season, actually existed, would open the second book of the series on August 16.

In the trailer, Te’o says that his whole world changed, and people can exclusively see it. He also claims that he is questioning everything. Interviews with Naya Tuiasosopo, formerly known as Lennay Kekua to Te’o, who discloses that she is transgender, will also be included in the show. Chapman Way and Maclain Way, the film’s executive producers and filmmakers stated in a statement that Te’o’s tale is “more deep and nuanced than we knew at the time.”

Chapman and Mclain Way said that their goal with UNTOLD had always been to take these pivotal events in sports history, whether they are well-known, like the Tim Donaghy betting scandal, or obscure, like the history of AND1, and give viewers an unvarnished, insider’s account of what transpired, as described by the individuals who experienced it. Each tale leaves us in awe of our participants’ willingness to be open as well as how very relatable their experiences and journeys are on a human level.

Internet Romance!

The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist, the second installment of the series, delves into the background of college football star Manti Te’o’s sensational Internet romance. When this news broke in 2012, it was difficult to ignore it. Still, as viewers of the documentary will learn, the actual events are considerably more complicated and nuanced than people realized at the time. They are incredibly grateful to both Ronaiah ‘Naya’ Tuiasosopo and Manti Te’o for sharing their trust.

When Te’o revealed in 2012 that Kekua had passed away following a battle with leukemia, he was an outstanding linebacker for Notre Dame. Te’o told ESPN that she was the most beautiful girl he had ever met. Not because of her physical beauty but because of her character and who she was.

Te’o said that in September of that year, his grandma passed away just a few hours before Kekua. He said that these tragedies had motivated him, and during his senior year, he finally assisted Notre Dame in winning the BCS National Championship.
