What are the Sprouse Twins Up to Nowadays?
If you are like me, you probably remember Dylan and Cole Sprouse from the Disney Channel classic, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody or the follow-up, The Suite Life on Deck. Believe it or not, it’s been seven years since the end of the Suite Life franchise, and a lot has changed for the Sprouse twins! From a thriller acting gig to work as a freelance photographer, here is what the Sprouse twins have been up to since we last saw them:
Dylan and Cole Go to College! – Following their split from Disney, the Sprouse twins decided to put their acting careers on hold and attend the prestigious New York University. They both graduated in four years with honors – Cole with a degree in humanities and archaeology, while Dylan focused on video game design. We don’t think anything could be more Zack and Cody of them, to be honest.
Cole Picks Up a Camera – In his hiatus for acting, Cole became quite a fan of photography. According to Sprouse in an interview with Teen Vogue, “I became obsessed with the storytelling of photography and going on little adventures.” However, as impassioned as he has become for the hobby, Cole still knows how to have a little fun – he created an Instagram account (@camera_duels) dedicated to taking photos of other people…taking pictures of him. All in all, Cole’s photos are amazing, and you should definitely check them out!
Dylan Starts His Own Brewery – Who knew that a Disney Channel star could turn into such a successful entrepreneur? In his break from acting, Dylan Sprouse set his sights on a brewing company and became the co-founder of All-Wise Meadery. According to their website, the All-Wise philosophy “follows ancient mead-making techniques…to yield dry, expensive meads with flavors that continue to develop as the living beverage ages.” Sounds sophisticated and delicious!
We Can’t Forget About Riverdale… – Let’s be honest, one of the real reasons that the Sprouse twins have become so relevant again today is because of Cole Sprouse’s lead role as Jughead Jones on Riverdale. Let’s just say, we aren’t addicted to Riverdale because of Archie – we’ve fallen for the mysterious bad boy hook, line, and sinker.
Dylan Makes a Change – In 2017, Dylan Sprouse left us all shook when he starred in a psycho-thriller titled Dismissed. In this film, Sprouse will do whatever it takes to get a good grade – and we really mean anything! It was a dramatic way back into the acting scene, and the movie earned favorable reviews.
Teen Romance All the Way – Most recently, Cole Sprouse released his new angsty teen drama Five-Feet Apart. In The Fault in Our Stars-fashion, two star-crossed lovers unite but realize there is no hope for them to be together. Spoiler: You will need tissues. However, we highly recommend the film for Sprouse’s acting alone.
Though they may have cut ties from Disney, it’s clear that the Sprouse twins have still got it. We can’t wait to see where they end up next and what is in store for their acting careers moving forward.
