Cole Sprouse is an actor from the United States with a net worth of $9 million. Due to California child labor regulations, Cole and his twin brother Dylan have acted in multiple projects together, sometimes portraying the same character.
They co-starred in Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” (2005–2008) and “The Suite Life on Deck” (2008–2011) as Julian McGrath and Patrick Kelly, respectively, in Adam Sandler’s film “Big Daddy” (1999) and ABC’s “Grace Under Fire” (1993–1998).
The Sprouse brothers have a clothing business, a magazine, and a book series in addition to their acting careers. Cole had a recurring role as Ben Geller on the NBC comedy “Friends” from 2000 to 2002, and he joined The CW’s “Riverdale” in 2017 to play Jughead Jones, an Archie Comics character.
He has more than 35 acting credits to his record, including the 2019 feature “Five Feet Apart,” which made $91.5 million on a $7 million budget. He also produced “The Suite Life Movie” (2011) and the narrative podcast “Borrasca” (2020).
Early roles as a kid actor, 1993–2012: Cole and his brother, Dylan, started performing at the age of eight months when their grandmother, Jonine Booth Wright, a theater instructor and performer, suggested it.
Many of Sprouse’s early jobs in advertisements, television shows, and films were shared with his brother, including shared roles as one baby or child in ads, television shows, and films. Because California’s child labor rules limit the length of time children can be recorded in a day, casting twins in a single role allows for more time to be spent filming one character.
Patrick Kelly in the sitcom Grace Under Fire from 1993 to 1998, Julian in the 1999 film Big Daddy, and young Pistachio Disguisey in 2002’s The Master of Disguise are some of the significant roles he shared with his brother.
Cole had his first appearance as Ross Geller‘s kid, Ben, in episodes of NBC’s television sitcom Friends in 2001; this was his first job in which he did not appear with his brother. As he and his brother grew older, they began to play more distinct characters, albeit they frequently collaborated on the same projects.
In a MADtv sketch, they played kids for the first time as different characters in the same production. Sprouse played Cody Martin with his brother in the 2005 Disney Channel original series The Suite Life of Zack & Cody; he reprised the character in the show’s 2008 spinoff, The Suite Life on Deck, and its accompanying film.
2016–present: After graduating from university, returning to acting: Sprouse was cast as Jughead Jones in The CW’s teen drama Riverdale on February 9, 2016, based on the Archie Comics characters.
The first episode of the series aired on January 26, 2017. In March of this year, Sprouse starred in Five Feet Apart, a romantic drama in which he portrays a cystic fibrosis patient who falls in love with a girl who also has the ailment.
It was his second leading part in a major theatrical film, following Big Daddy, which he had played 20 years before. Sprouse created and starred in.
Sprouse is a comic book lover who previously worked at Meltdown in Los Angeles.
After postponing for a year, Sprouse enrolled at New York University in 2011. He originally intended to study film and television production, but instead chose to enroll in the Gallatin School of Individualized Study to study the humanities, including archaeology.
In May of 2015, he graduated with his brother.
Sprouse worked in archaeology for a short time, participating in excavations and undertaking laboratory work. Geographic information systems and satellite imagery were his areas of expertise. He worked on summer digs in Europe and Asia during his studies. On a dig in Bulgaria while doing his undergraduate studies, he discovered a Dionysus mask.
Sprouse is passionate about photography. In 2011, he started a personal photography website and enrolled at NYU for seminars. He’s done shoots for big fashion magazines like Teen Vogue, L’Uomo Vogue, The Sunday Times Style, and W Magazine, to name a few.
Sprouse was detained on May 31, 2020, after he participated in racial justice protests in Los Angeles following the murder of George Floyd.
