Cole Sprouse. I don't get it.

I think he's sort of good looking, but I still don't get it.

He's perfectly cast for their conception of Jughead on Riverdale, because he's attractive despite the needle-nose.

It's almost impossible though to think of what he'll do post-"Riverdale," but that's the trouble with most of them on that series. Camilla Mendes is genuinely talented, but what would she do after this is over? And KJ Apa is just a torso, and he's not getting any younger.

He and his brother have that pretty straight-boy appeal that attracts a mixed demographic.

They took forever to reach puberty. I don't find either very attractive and find them to be average-looking white boys who if they weren't on Disney. Nobody would be thirsting over them. I guess their appeal is being non-threatening looking and blond. The male Olsen twins.

There are hotter twinks out there to me like Raviv Ullman, Hunter Parrish, Nicholas Hoult, Cameron Monaghan, Corbin Bleu and Nick Robinson.

No matter how old Dylan and Cole get I cannot unsee them as Zack and Cody which grosses me out. Their faces have not changed since their Disney days. Justin Bieber at least looks like an adult man now.

You don't get it because you didn't grow up with the Sprouse twin(k)s. They were child actors so they have a built in fan base.

by Anonymousreply 1302/21/2021

R13 Actually I am a 27 gay male. I grew up with them and never found them attractive even when Zack and Cody aired. I think they mostly appealed to girls honestly. I was more into Zac Efron, Corbin Bleu, Tom Welling and Usher.

Sprouse was very good in the film, "Five Feet Apart". Anyone that has not seen it should search it out. Well worth the time.

He's attractive now he's young, but he will always play supporting parts.

I don't get why you think everyone else has to agree with your personal tastes. You don't find him attractive? Who gives a fuck?

by Anonymousreply 1902/21/2021

His fanbase is: 1) teen girls and young women who were the target demographic of both Disney Channel and Riverdale and 2) gay men who love emaciated twinks and subscribe to Helix. If you aren't in those demographics, his appeal will be lost on you.

How long have you been here, r19? These sorts of disagreements are the bread and butter of Datalounge, toots!

by Anonymousreply 2102/21/2021

I remember pissing people off when I say things like Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds, Beyoncé and Scarlett Johannson are average looking and the media tries too hard to push them as sex symbols. People really take offense when you don't agree on a celebrity's attractiveness.

by Anonymousreply 2202/21/2021

NEVER understood people going on about him on here.

by Anonymousreply 2302/21/2021

He's a decent actor. It's unfortunate that some can't move on from the damned Disney-ism that seems to follow him.

by Anonymousreply 2402/21/2021

Most former Disney stars will never be able to disassociate from that brand no matter how hard they try. Usually the only child stars that become successful adult stars are the ones who were doing mature films at an early age. The Sprouse twins were in a few but signing up for Disney Channel turned them into a walking brand for a greedy corporation that they will be associated with for a while. Some like Hilary, Raven and The Jonas Brothers just stopped trying to be taken seriously and embraced it because they can profit off of nsotalgia. Very few do get Hollywood pushes like Shia LaBeouf and Lindsay Lohan but they blew their chances. Zac Efron and Zendaya seems to have the biggest chance though likely because they are marketable and have good work ethic. The Sprouse twins just aren't marketable and will probably just keep doing indie films.

by Anonymousreply 2502/21/2021

For Our Eldergays:

Sprouse and his twin brother were stars of a Disney Channel show called "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody" and its follow-up "Suite Life On Deck" that ran for about 5 or 6 years in the late 00s and was a huge influence in the lives of younger Millennials/older Zoomers. Sort of their Brady Bunch or Saved By The Bell .

Cole went to NYU and had a very funny Insta where he'd take photos of people trying to surreptitiously photograph him, often on the subway.

I suspect they've made enough money so they can pick and choose projects and he seems to want to be more of an art house movie actor than an Efron-style star.

by Anonymousreply 2602/21/2021

As I just noted though R25, it would seem that the Sprouse brothers are doing indie films because they want to do indie films and if their parents/managers were wise, they've made enough money they can continue to do indie films.

LOL. No, it wasn't.

I think the Sprouse twins are also realistic and realize they were never going to have Hollywood careers just like Mary-Kate and Ashley realized too. Doing indie films was a practical decisions as well as an artistic decision. They honestly don't even need to work anyway.

What’s their skin color?

by Anonymousreply 3002/21/2021

I actually think he's a decent actor and it's hard to imagine him as the same kid from Suite Life. KJ Apa, although more attractive, is much more bland. That said, there are much hotter twinks out there such as the ones R9 mentioned.

by Anonymousreply 3102/21/2021

I think some people are attracted to people who they think they can easily dominate and snap in half. Non-threatening as they say. Some straight/bi girls I know say they prefer a pretty face and sense of style and don't like too much muscle and body hair on a male partner. Me as a gay man on the other hand like muscle, thick thighs and butts, big veiny hands, hairy arms and legs and a jawline. Types like Cole, Timothee, Pattinson or Troye just don't do much for me.

Was The Suite Life Of Zach And Cody really on a par with The Brady Bunch? Not just kids watched The Brady Bunch (or The Partridge Family, for that matter). They were on regular network TV, not a kids channel.

R33

Just like The Brady Bunch and Saved By The Bell. Disney Channel was considered corny and embarrassing by most people over the age of 14. And like The Brady Bunch and SBTB, it was not a huge impact on anyone's life. Just a dumb comedy removed from reality that was enjoyable for passive viewing and had moral at the end of the episode to learn. Fun to watch and enjoy for the cheese factor but nobody took it seriously enough for it to be impactful.

Also Disney Channel is a cable network and wasn't widely available to everyone. I much preferred Even Stevens, Lizzie McGuire, That's So Raven and The Famous Jett Jackson anyway and Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon were consistently better in every way.

The Office, How I Met Your Mother, Malcolm in the Middle, 30 Rock, Skins, The IT Crowd, Avatar the Last Airbender, Futurama and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are Millennial-defining shows.

[quote] COLE: “I’m the main character in all your stories. Well, I’m leaving, I got what I needed—validation from my dearest Twin brother.”

In every interview they do together as adults, Cole is constantly flirting with Dylan in that teasing mean way, and it’s kind of weird. Like, I don’t get whether it’s a joke, or another one of Cole’s infamous social experiments’, or if it’s somewhat legit. Is this something many twins do as a humorous mindfucky thing, or?

Never even heard of some of these shows. I think The Simpsons, X Files, Friends, Seinfeld, and Arrested Development are far more important than any of the shows you mentioned. Malcolm in the Middle was great thought. It did set a template for other shows to come.
