Both Dylan and Cole Sprouse were part of the Disney Channel family for years, starring on two hit shows, Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Suite Life On Deck. After their shows ended, the guys both took a time-out from acting, deciding to head off to college instead. But now, Cole is making his big TV comeback, with a leading role as Jughead in the upcoming CW series, Riverdale. In a recent interview, Cole opened up about exactly why he felt the need to step away from the spotlight and just take the time for himself.
"There was a feeling of machination. I felt like an automaton. I needed to take a break and step outside myself," Cole explained. "I needed a dose of reality and I needed to see myself in a more objective point of view. And now I think I can enjoy [acting], which is a really fundamental part about being an actor. I’m not saying that we didn’t enjoy that time, but it was work. It’s a career and a business, and it got me to college, which is one of the most fantastic gifts I could’ve been given. But I’m glad to be [acting] on my own accord now."
So Cole just needed to figure himself out after being on two TV shows, back-to-back for so much of his life. Now that he's taken the time to do that, he's ready to return to our screens. And since this is the first time Cole will be acting without his bro Dylan by his side, he was asked if his twin will ever take the time to make a cameo in his new show.
"I’m sure he’d entertain that idea," Cole said.
Well, now we're just about freaking out over possibly seeing them back on TV together!
