Twins Dylan and Cole Sprouse were born August 4, 1992, in Arezzo, Italy, to American parents. The Sprouses began their acting career at the tender age of six months. From 1993 to 1998, the twins shared the role of Brett Butler's youngest child, Patrick Kelly, on ABC's series "Grace Under Fire" (1993). The twins then moved on to what is probably their most memorable role as Julian in Adam Sandler's box-office hit Big Daddy (1999). During that same month, their second feature film, The Astronaut's Wife (1999), starring Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron, was also released.
Dylan and Cole were featured in Dana Carvey's film The Master of Disguise (2002), in which they played the role of Young Pistachio. The boys then shared voice-over roles in Adam Sandler's animated feature Eight Crazy Nights (2002), and, in the fall of 2003, the twins shared the lead role of Jeremiah in The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (2004).
Most recently, the boys starred together in their own half hour sitcom "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" (2005) on the Disney Channel. The show was popular enough to spawn a sequel, "The Suite Life on Deck" (2008).

Yeah, it's fun being a twin. Even though we fight sometimes over little stuff we really do look out for each other. We're like best friends. We spend a lot of time doing fun things with our friends and family.
The writers spent a lot of time getting to know us, so our characters are based on what we're like in real life. [The Suite Life of Zack and Cody's writers]
[about having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame] "It's something every actor wants to do. You want to have your name written on this earth for everybody to see. That's just something you want."
I think your own magazine is the coolest thing you can get. I'm not a professional on that kind of stuff, but I definitely am willing to learn.
Even though we fight, we look out for each other.
I'm too sexy for the catwalk, I'm to sexy for my shirt. But I'm not going to take it off.
