COLE SPROUSE BIOGRAPHY
Cole Mitchell Sprouse is an American artist, an object of adoration for millions of young viewers, the star of the Disney channel and the TV series Riverdale, the winner of the Teen Choice Awards 2017, Dylan’s twin brother Thomas Sprouse.
He was made famous by the Disney positive sitcom, All Tiptop, or Zach and Cody’s Life, which became the most popular TV show for teenagers and children, where he and his brother played the roles of key characters. According to MSN, by the end of the 2000s, they became the world’s richest twin teenagers in the world, earning $ 40,000 per episode.
CHILDHOOD. FIRST ROLES
Cole Sprouse was born 15 minutes later than his brother Dylan on August 4, 1992 in the town of Arezzo, located in Tuscany. Their parents are Americans with Scottish, Danish and German roots, who worked in Italy as school teachers of English. The older twin was named after the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, and the youngest in honor of the American jazz pianist Net King Cole.
4 months after the birth of the boys, they returned to their home in the USA, located in the city of Long Beach, California.
The career of very cute babies by nature began thanks to their mother’s grandmother Janine Booth Wright, a former actress and teacher. She gave the idea to attract them literally from the cradle to the sphere of show business. At 6 months old, the brothers appeared on the TV screen in advertising diapers, at 8 – in a rating project on the ABC channel Grace on Fire, where they played the same character – Patrick Kelly.
It is worth noting that twin babies are very in demand in the American film industry because of the law governing the duration of filming of newborns. To reduce the cost of the shooting process, the spent twin rate is replaced by another. That is how the most famous twins of the 90s, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, began their careers .
In 1997, when the boys were 5 years old, their parents divorced. Children stayed with father.
CAREER OF A YOUNG ACTOR
At the age of 7, Cole made his debut in a big movie – it was a comedy film “Big Dad”, where he alternately with his brother played the role of their peer named Julian. The touching story presented in the film about the friendship and growing up of an infantile 32-year-old man ( Adam Sandler ) and a 5-year-old boy, although received mixed reviews from critics, was an absolute box office success, starting from an amount of 41.5 million on the first weekend of film distribution and raising as a result of more than $ 230 million with a 34 million budget. In addition, the film was nominated for numerous film awards. Among them: the “Choice of Children” awards, recognition of all viewers (People’s Choice Awards) and exclusively teenagers (Teen Choice Awards).
Then the young talents played the children of the main characters – Spencer Armacost ( Johnny Depp ) and his wife Gillian ( Charlize Theron ) – in the fantastic film “The Astronaut’s Wife.” They also appeared in small episodes of the series Nightmare Room, 70s Show, Crazy Television, Anatomy of Evil.
Since 2001, Cole (already without a brother) has played Ben, the five-year-old son of Ross ( David Schwimmer ) and his ex-lesbian wife Carol (Jane Sibbett) in the acclaimed television series Friends
It is believed that the role in this television project, which earned Golden Globe and six Emmy awards during the screening, has become a key one in the career of a novice actor. According to him, during the filming it was terribly difficult for him to concentrate, he was nervous and confused the text because he fell in love with Jennifer Aniston , who played Ross’s lover Rachel Green. In addition to her on the set, he was lucky to work with many Hollywood stars included in the cast of the series, including Matthew Perry , Courtney Cox and Matt LeBlanc .
In 2002, the guys appeared in the comedy film “I saw my mother kissing Santa Claus.” Cole embodied the image of a boy who saw how, after a quarrel with his dad, his mother kissed Santa. He knew that the Christmas grandfather comes only to good children, so that he would no longer come to their house, the boy decided to become bad.
In the same year, fans of the brothers could see their favorites in the comedy “Master of Reincarnation”, where they played the main character Fistashio in his youth. Then they voiced the soldiers from the toy store “K • B Toys” in the animated film “Eight Crazy Nights”, created according to the script of Adam Sandler, their idol. In 2003, the film hit, another hit. According to the plot, their heroes, boy football players, want to win the championship of the local football league. When their father, the team’s coach, leaves and his mother doesn’t replace him very successfully in this post, they find her an assistant, an auto mechanic Rudy. Later it turns out that in fact he is a famous football player George Patrick Owens.
EDUCATION AND THE WAY FORWARD
In June 2010, Cole graduated from Laurel Springs High School Distance Learning. In 2011, he entered (with his brother) at New York University (NYU), where he studied archeology and anthropology (Dylan preferred the graphic design of computer games). In his first year at NYU, during hiking and expeditions, Cole took up photography. Then he began to collaborate as a photo artist with one of the main international modeling agencies IMG Models.
In connection with his studies, he paused in his acting career, noting that he considered moving to New York a terrific event that allowed him to understand how spoiled he was, to overestimate his achievements and really feel the daily self-realization.
In the press, the story of the brothers was called not typical of Hollywood, in the good sense of the word. Indeed, often creative people, in the pursuit of self-knowledge, go through a fascination with alcohol and drugs, try to express themselves through a demonstration of wild tricks, indecent selfies, statements about bisexuality, etc. But all this is not about the Sprouse brothers.
In 2015, the young men received diplomas of graduation from the university, and at their presentation supposedly for fun, they swapped places. After graduating from NYU, Cole faced a choice – to return to show business or work in his specialty at one of the companies in Brooklyn. He chose the cinema.
The first season of the Riverdale teenage drama kicked off in January 2017, where he played the role of Jughead, the former best friend of Archie’s key character (KJ Up). The plot focuses on young people engaged in researching the life of their town, hiding behind its front facade. Heroes are sure that she is full of terrible secrets. Are friends not mistaken?
