Cole Sprouse has quite literally been acting his whole life. Sprouse and his twin brother, Dylan, first got into the business when they were only 8 months old, and they haven’t really slowed down since. While the 26-year-old has had a wide range of roles over the years, including the 1999 comedy Big Daddy, Friends, and the Disney Channel’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, his work continues to mature with him as he gets older. After taking a hiatus from acting to go to college from 2011-2015, Sprouse made his big return to TV when he scored the role of the moody Archie Comics character Jughead Jones on Riverdale in 2017. Now, nearly three years later, Sprouse is heading back to the big screen in the upcoming movie adaptation of Five Feet Apart.The film, which is directed by Jane the Virgin’s Justin Baldoni, follows two cystic fibrosis patients named Stella and Will who fall in love against all odds. Despite the rule that cystic fibrosis patients should be kept at least six feet apart to decrease the risk of cross-infection, the pair decide to take back that extra foot since the genetic disorder has already taken so much from them. While the movie writes as a love letter – both through the characters’ story and to the CF community – it’s also a simple reminder to appreciate the little things in life. Ahead of the film’s release, I had a chance to talk with Sprouse about his return to the big screen, bringing the character of Will to life, and Five Feet Apart’s “very interpretative” ending.
