Profile Bio Text
Dylan Thomas Sprouse and Cole Mitchell Sprouse (born August 4, 1992) are American identical twin brother actors. They are sometimes collectively referred to as Cole & Dylan, the Sprouse Bros., or the Sprouse Twins, and are known for for portraying the title characters on the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. As a result of the series` success, they have become "heartthrobs" and "overwhelming draws" among preteen and teen audiences.
The Sprouses were born in Arezzo, Italy to American parents Matthew Sprouse and Melanie Wright who at the time were teaching at an English language school in Italy. Dylan, named after poet Dylan Thomas, is 14 minutes and 30 seconds older than Cole, who is named for jazz singer and pianist Nat King Cole. The twins moved back to the United States four months after their birth. They grew up in their parents` native Long Beach, California.
Their parents divorced in 1997
After a suggestion by their grandmother, Jonine Booth Wright, who was a drama teacher and actress, the Sprouses began acting at the age of six months, started with the twosome appearing in a commercial for toilet paper switching on-screen time every few seconds. As with many identical twin actors, the two have often played the same role, allowing more time for the character to be filmed. From 1993 to 1998 at the age of six months, the two starred on the ABC-TV series Grace Under Fire, playing one character, Patrick Kelly.
In 1999, the twins appeared in their first major feature film, Big Daddy, in which they shared a role of a five-year old boy named `Julian` who is adopted by Adam Sandler`s character `Sonny Koufax`. That year, the twins collaborated with Sandler on the second version of The Chanukah Song, and the twins also had a minor role in the thriller The Astronaut`s Wife. The Sprouses have noted that after Big Daddy`s release, the two entered into a slow period in their careers and were not cast in any major roles for a time. During the early 2000s, the twins appeared in episodes of the The Nightmare Room and That `70s Show, as well as in MADtv: Season Four (1998-1999) (episode #425) and the feature films The Master of Disguise and a voice-over role in Adam Sandler`s Eight Crazy Nights. In 2001, Cole started appearing in episodes of the television show Friends, as Ross Geller`s son Ben. Many people think it was a shared role, however their web site and other credible sources specify that Dylan did not appear in any episodes.
Between the years of 2002 and 2003, the two starred in I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus and Just for Kicks, both of which were family films that received a direct-to-video release. The Sprouses were subsequently cast in the Disney Channel original series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, where they play identical twins Zack (Dylan)and Cody(Cole)Martin . The series, which debuted in March 2005, has become a ratings success and the twins have become very well known among pre-teen and teen audiences. As part of their involvement with Disney, the brothers are now part of the 11-member group, the Disney Channel Circle of Stars, and sang the song A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes along with the members of the circle, for a video that was released as bonus material in the special edition version of the Disney film Cinderella. The Sprouses also participated in the Disney Channel Games 2006, which began airing in June of 2006. Dylan was on the Red Team, while Cole was on the Blue Team. The twins were asked back for the Disney Channel Games 2007. Dylan was the Captain of the Green Team( the winning team of 2007), while Cole returned to the Blue Team. In Disney Channel Games 2008, Cole and Dylan will both be on the yellow team. Cole Sprouse will be the captain. Dylan Sprouse will be a member.
The Sprouses played one character, Jeremiah, in the independent film The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, which was produced in 2004 but not given a theatrical release until March of 2006, when it played in a total of three theatres across the United States, ultimately grossing $29,000 domestically. As of November 2006, the two are filming the Sony Pictures film The Prince and the Pauper, which also stars Sally Kellerman, Ed Lauter and Dedee Pfeiffer, in Palm Beach, Florida; filming began in October and ended by December. The Prince and the Pauper will come out on dvd on February 5th, 2008. It was also recently announced that The Suite Life of Zack & Cody will be shooting a third season. The two also lent their voices to a movie called Holidaze: The Christmas That Almost Didn`t Happen, which also features the voices of fellow Disney Channel stars Brenda Song and Emily Osment. As of late November 2007, they are filming a new movie called Kings of Appletown which is based on Tom Sawyer. It is directed by Bobby Moresco and written by Amanda Moresco. Also starring in it is Victoria Justice from Nickolodeon`s Zoey 101. It is being filmed in New Braunfels, TX
