Toni Topaz Rumored for "Riverdale" Season 2 Debut! Plus: When Did She Become Bisexual?? // UPDATE: Toni Topaz Is Indeed Bi!

(Originally written on 06/28/17): Regular readers might have noticed that I'm a fan of Archie Comics' character, Two-Fisted Toni Topaz. She is a relatively new addition to the Riverdale Pals & Gals. She was created as a tough-girl rival for Jughead, who enjoyed eating and sarcastic dialogue. She's appeared on more Archie Comics covers than you can shake a stick at, but other than that hasn't appeared in that many stories

It looks like the character will be appearing on Season 2 of The CW's "Riverdale" series in the fall. Audition tapes have surfaced, including one by an actress named Lorelei Linklater. I've never heard of her, but she was in some show called "Boyhood." Here is her audition tape. Personally, I wasn't terribly impressed.

But I did like this actress' audition tape. Her name is Arabelle Monet (sp?). I have no clue who she is or what's she's done, but I really hope that she got the job!

There was a curious bit of trivia revealed about Toni Topaz in this article. Apparently she's bisexual. When did this happen? I consider myself a fan of the character, but I don't ever remember her ever expressing any interest in other girls. In fact, I've only seen her interested in Jughead in the past. I'm not complaining, but this was completely new to me!

Did you know that Two-Fisted Toni Topaz is a bi girl? If so, tell me about it in the comments section. I really want to know!!

Updated on 06/29/17: Yes, Two-Fisted Toni Topaz is indeed a bi girl! Check out this tweet:

And just in case you're thinking that she's a lesbian, Toni Topaz has crushed on guys, including Jughead and Sayid. So there you have it!

Updated on 07/22/17: Looks like "Riverdale" has finally cast its Two-Fisted Toni Topaz!

Toni will be played by Vanessa Morgan, who previously starred in "The Shannara Chronicles." I've not heard of her or it before, but I'm super excited that we get to see one of my favorite D-List Archie Comics characters on Season 2 of "Riverdale!!"

According to the article I read, Toni Topaz will be a member of the Southside Serpent and she "might mean 'trouble' for Betty and Jughead's relationship."
