It’s an interesting career- I mean, have you seen an 8-month old baby working on his job?

Only Cole can do that!

So what are you waiting for, fellow weirdos…

Let’s jump in!

Who Is Cole Sprouse?

Cole Mitchell Sprouse was born on August 4, 1992, in Arezzo, in a small hospital in Italy.

He came 15 minutes after his older twin brother named Dylan.

Cole’s father is Matthew Sprouse and his mother is Melanie Wright. They were English language teachers in a language school in the beautiful region of Tuscany. 

Fun fact: 

Who Is Cole Sprouse

Cole Sprouse was named after the famous pianist and jazz singer Nat King Cole.

Little did they know (or know?) that he’ll grow to be just as well-known!

Though born in Italy, Cole and his twin brother grew up in sunny California. The boys were moved to their parents’ native long beach just four months after they were born. 

And another four months later…

…their acting career began.

Yes, you’ve read that right. That wasn’t a typographical error.

The twin Cole and Dylan Sprouse’s net worth and would-be successful career started growing when they started their acting career at 8 months old. 

This was all thanks to their grandmother, Jonine Booth Wright. She was an actress and a drama teacher.

Now that explains it.

Now here’s the thing.

Cole, along with his twin bro, was basically just an infant then and they were in California.

So suffice to say, they’re subjects to the child labor laws of the state that gives a limit to the children’s working hours.

Because of that, managements like to use the twin, interchanging them in between scenes so that the character can be filmed more times. 

This would set their careers for the next years to come. 

At eight months old…

Cole and Dylan took the role of a single character named Patrick Kelly on the series Grace Under Fire by the ABC network.

The boys got their first role in a major feature film with the actor Adam Sandler in a movie titled Big Daddy, as a five-year-old boy named Julian who’s adopted by Sonny Koufax, Adam’s character. 

Cole and Dylan were nominated for several awards for this role but they didn’t take home any. 

But it was a great start for them.

They’ve also formed an admiration for Adam Sandler and shared that they’ve learned a lot about doing comedy from him.

Now that’s cute.

Their acting work continued to bloom as the twins were also cast for a minor role in the thriller film called The Astronaut’s Wife that very same year.

Or so they thought.

The truth is, just after Big Daddy, the boys’ acting careers took a much slower pace as they didn’t get even one more major acting role for some time.

Cole Sprouse Television career

Although their silver screen careers took a slow turn, Cole’s TV appearances improved.

Cole and Dylan still shared acting roles, appearing in the series The Nightmare Room, That’s So Raven, and a Fox TV sitcom called That ‘70s Show.

He also appeared on Hannah Montana and The Wizards of Waverly.

Moving forward to the 2000s, Cole and Dylan were also give roles in the feature films titled The Master of Disguise and on Eight Crazy Nights reuniting with Adam Sandler.

Now here’s one of his well-known breaks…

….we’re talking about Cole Sprouse’s role in the famous and iconic TV sitcom Friends. He played the character of Ben, Ross Geller’s son in 2001. 

This might just be his first role that wasn’t shared with his twin brother Dylan.

With their career slowly but surely taking off, Cole and Dylan got together again to appear in a 2001 made-for-TV family movie titled I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus and well as Just for Kicks in 2003. 

At this point…

…the two young actors were started to get noticed by film critics and receive mixed reviews, a majority of which were daily good. 

In 2004, they played for one character yet again for the independent film The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things as the character Jeremiah.

Then their Dinsey break came.

Cole and Dylan were starred in the Disney Channel original TV series titled The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Dylan was cast as Zack while Cole was cast as Cody Martin. 

They were just 13 years old at that time and their individual and shared net worth was starting to rise considerably.

The Suite Life of Zack & Cody became a commercial success. 

Their first Disney gig created a greater path for the twin’s success in show business.

At one point…

Cole and Dylan were Disney Channel’s highest-paid actors!

Following their Disney gig, they also Did a voiceover in the animated films Holidaze: The Christmas That Almost Didn’t Happen and Disney’s Snow Buddies.

After The Suite Life…

Cole and Dylan appeared in People Magazine’s May 2009 which is a special edition issue with 80 pages dedicated to The Suite Life on Deck. 

The twins put their acting work to a halt in 2011 to focus on their education. 

In 2010, they were accepted to New York University but they deferred for one year.

After graduating in 2015…

Cole Sprouse was cast in playing Jughead Jones in The CW teen TV series titled Riverdale.

And that’s when the big bucks started coming in.

Riverdale is a spin-off of the famous Archie Comics but with a dark and mysterious twist.

Riverdale plays its fifth season on Netflix.

Cole Sprouse Scandals & Controversies

We all know that Cole is also a professional photographer and he loves posting his masterpieces on Instagram.

But in 2018…

…the young actor caused a ruckus when he posted his travel photos in Manila, Philippines. 

This series was supposed to show ‘the real Philippines in its most vulnerable state. No pretensions, just a clear reality.”

But then, in one photo…

…Cole showed an impoverished child and captioned it with “Well I’m not your parent, don’t gotta follow me around.

Some people took offense at this and accused him of sensationalizing poverty.

Cole soon apologized with the statement:

For those of you that took offense to this photo or the caption, I removed it. My apologies, and not my intention. Certainly not seeking to sensationalize poverty nor poke fun, should have thought more about the words used, and the implications of those words I hadn’t even considered. I’ll continue to post about my travels through Manila, showing all sides of the city experiences.”
