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 hit 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 (2000). During that same month, their second feature film, The Astronaut's Wife (1999), starring Johnny Depp and Charlize Theron, was also released.
Cole appeared without his brother on the hit NBC series "Friends" (1994), portraying Ross's son, Ben Gellar. Dylan and Cole are featured in Dana Carvey's film, The Master of Disguise (2002), where 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). More recently, the boys began starring in their own half-hour sitcom, "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" (2005) on the Disney Channel.

The Suite Life is my favorite project so far! Everyone is nice and the cast is like family.
I love to have a twin cause you always have someone to talk to when you are lonely. You kind of have someone to share your feelings with, without talking out loud
[about their goal] "Dylan and I have talked about it quite a lot. We both agree that we want to get our star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."
We both keep a journal, we write every day. I started first and then I convinced Dylan to start his.
Every kid who has a brother or a sister has to deal with sibling rivalry.
Having our own magazine gives us the opportunity to help kids discover their interests and spotlight the best of everything from new movies and CDs to young athletes we think are amazing!
Dylan is cool. He's relaxed. He really enjoys getting into something like collecting, and once he has a goal, he will go for it.
Every single day, Dylan always mentions that he is fifteen minutes older than me and considers that just because he is older, it means that he is the boss.
We have a great manager, his name is John. He totally looks out for us and points us in the right direction. We went out for [the movie] Big Daddy and we got it.
When I think about our careers, I don't really look at it as fame and fortune, I look at it as fun. I'd rather have a good time on set, have fun and mess around. And I love fans.
