One of Riverdale’s Favourite Actors
Cole Mitchell Sprouse (born August 4, 1992) is an American actor. He is the twin brother of Dylan Sprouse and is known for his role as Cody Martin on the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and its spinoff The Suite Life on Deck. As of 2017, Sprouse stars as Jughead Jones on The CW television series Riverdale.
Cole and his brother, Dylan, began acting at the age of eight months following a suggestion from their grandmother, Jonine Booth Wright, who was a drama teacher and actress. Much of Sprouse’s early career was shared with his brother—some of their earliest roles were shared roles as one baby or child in commercials, television shows, and films. Due to child labor laws in California restricting the amount of time children can be filmed in a day, casting twins in a single role allows more time for one character to be filmed.
Sprouse portrayed Cody Martin in the 2005 Disney Channel original series, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody alongside his brother; he reprised the role in the show’s 2008 spinoff, The Suite Life on Deck and its related film. On February 9, 2016, Sprouse was cast as Jughead Jones in The CW’s teen drama series Riverdale, based on the characters of Archie Comics. The series premiered on January 26, 2017.
