Scream's Skeet Ulrich made a surprising recommendation for who should play his ex-wife on the popular series, Riverdale. Skeet chose Neve Campbell, who portrayed Sidney Prescott in the popular 4-part Scream series.

Ulrich, who characterized Billy in the film, said Neve "would be interesting." However, Ulrich acknowledged that the actress is incredibly busy these days doing other films, so the possibility is low.

Back in 1996, Campbell and Ulrich co-starred in the horror movie. At the very end of the classic thriller, Neve kills Skeet's character, who turns out to the be the original Ghost Face Killer after all.

As for Riverdale, at the moment, fans of the series don't know that much about Jughead's mom, who moved to Toledo before the show takes place.

Furthermore, Ulrich said he doesn't know if his character's ex-wife would appear on the show, but casting Neve Campbell would be incredibly cool because the obvious Scream reference would "really tickle people."

As you may know, the movie, Scream, was released to widespread critical claim back in 1996 and grossed $173 million on just a 14$ million budget.

The film - coincidentally produced by the now-disgraced Weinstein company due to the actions of Harvey - received several awards and had since become a "cult classic." Many critics attributed the reemergence of horror to this iconic movies.

In addition to being incredibly successful in every way, the film broke new ground for casting already established actors and actresses in a slasher film, unlike others which use B-list performers. The inclusion of relatively well-known entertainers is considered to be one of the reasons for its success, especially among female viewers.
