Facts about Dylan Sprouse
Dylan and Cole Sprouse Biography
Identical twins Dylan and Cole Sprouse were the stars of the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
Born in Italy to American parents, they moved to southern California as infants and began their professional careers. Like the Olsen twins, the Sprouse twins frequently were hired to take turns playing one character, including baby boy Patrick in Grace Under Fire in 1993. In 1999 they appeared in the comedy feature Big Daddy, taking turns playing Adam Sandler‘s adopted son.
The lads moved up to starring roles in the television comedy The Suite Life of Zack & Cody (2005-08, co-starring Ashley Tisdale) and became part of Disney’s stable of young stars. The series had them playing heck-raising brothers who lived in the Tipton Hotel in Boston — hence the “suite” of the title. The popular series spawned a 2011 feature film, The Suite Life Movie, and then a different TV series, The Suite Life on Deck (2008-11).
The twins then stepped back from acting to attend New York University, with both of them graduating in 2015.
In 2017, Cole Sprouse began playing Jughead Jones, Archie’s pal, on the TV series Riverdale (based on the long-running Archie comics series). Dylan has appeared occasionally in television and web series.
