Even though Dylan Sprouse has totally trolled Riverdale fans with the endless jokes about appearing on the show, and he’s made fun of his brother Cole’s character Jughead countless times; one thing fans should know is that the former Suite Life star doesn’t actually know anything about the hit CW series. Turns out Dylan’s been faking it this whole time! In a new interview with Indiewire, the Dismissed star admits to only ever watching one episode of his brother’s show.
He said, “I’m just immensely proud of my brother for tackling both the big job of doing ‘Riverdale,’ which is a lot of hours and has had like a lot of success, and also at the same time not losing sight of his passions like photography, which he’s very good at. I hear very good things [about ‘Riverdale’] and I hear my brother is quite good so I’m proud of him nonetheless.”
Nothing like some brotherly love between these two to make fans smile. Although Dylan isn’t as big of a Riverdale fan as we all hoped – which is a slight bummer, he’s also insanely happy that they’ve both gotten to explore their careers on their terms. He added, “We both have been lucky enough to be actually successful in the things that we have strived to do, but I think for us these last couple of years have really been an exploration of not only who we are as people, but also who we are as individuals outside of each other, and I think we’re really comfortable with that.”
Even though they’ve been on their own separately for years now, Dylan still does miss not being able to see his brother all the time. He continued to say, “The only thing that kind of stinks is that it generally means that we’re away from each other for long periods of time and we’re both very close so it’s very hard with him living in Vancouver year round and not seeing him very much. When we do reunite and hang out, it’s very nice.”
Considering all the great pictures they both share of their hangouts on social media, we can only imagine how hilarious their reunions must be too. Maybe Dylan should start watching Riverdale when he starts missing his brother, it would be like having him right there – just a suggestion.
