Ever since they starred in Disney Channel’s Suite Life of Zack and Cody together, fans have been patiently waiting for the moment that Dylan and Cole Sprouse would work alongside each other once again. Well guys, you might want to prepare yourselves because Dylan just got real about the possibility of him reuniting onscreen with his twin brother, and it sounds like if the right opportunity presents itself, he’s totally down!
“It would have to be right,” the actor told HollywoodLife at the Miracle Workers: Dark Ages premiere on Tuesday, January 28. “A lot of the times when they want to cast my brother and I, it’s really stupid s**t. So it would have to be something good and tasteful.”
There’s actually been rumors circulating the web recently that Dylan may make a guest appearance in Riverdale. His brother, Cole, plays Jughead Jones in the CW show, but fans were left shocked when it seemed like his character had died in an episode of the fourth season. What appeared to be his body was even shown on a coroner’s table, but some viewers weren’t too convinced that it was really the end of the famous character. Some fans have theorized that Jughead may actually have an evil twin brother that no one knew about, and that’s whose body was shown on the coroner’s table. If that ends up being true, it would totally make sense that Dylan would step in and portray Jughead’s twin. Yeah, the former Disney star would be perfect for the role!
Previously, the 27-year-old opened up about what it was like to grow up in the spotlight with his twin brother, and it definitely had its ups and its downs.
“Having an identical twin next to me going through the same exact experiences in a very similar way with a very similar point of view is therapeutic,” he told Variety Magazine. “When you’re a child actor you’re a minor, and so a lot of the larger business decisions that are controlling your career are done outside of your own agency. One of the dangers of, at least, my position, which was a sitcom inside of a sound stage for nine years with Disney Channel, you’re raised in such an insular environment that you forget what real human experience or boots on the ground actually looks like.”
But he admitted that there were also some negative aspects of working with your twin brother.
“I also had the luxury of being identified as a duo for a long time because of my brother,” Dylan continued. “I think a lot of people thought that my brother and I had only ever shared roles or done roles side by side when we were kids. But we did a lot of roles separately when we were kids.”
