Ashley Tisdale shared a photo on Instagram over the weekend of her recent reunion with her Suite Life Of Zack And Cody costars, Dylan and Cole Sprouse, and fans have been sharing the pic like wildfire.
The Sprouse twins graduated from New York University last month, and their former onscreen big sis says she is so proud of them. The actress captioned the photo, “I love seeing these boys. My little brothers have grown into such smart, talented, and genuinely great people.”
The Disney Channel show was a huge hit for the child actors, but has now been off the air for seven years. Tisdale has moved on to a new TBS show called Clipped, about a group of people who went to high school together but were never in the same crowd who all find themselves working in the same barbershop. Dylan and Cole, meanwhile, made headlines recently when they spoke out about their experiences as child actors. Dylan told Salon.com that when he and Cole pitched an idea for a spinoff show to Disney, they were rejected…only to have the company pitch the same idea to them later under the pretense that it was their idea.
“When we had pitched our idea, it was kind of this situation where they had almost laughed in our faces,” Dylan said. A year later, “They’re like, ‘Well, we said no to your idea, let us pitch you our idea that we came up with for the next season … Zack goes to work in Miami with Cody, they go to this hotel, and there’s this kid who has a single dad and you guys raise him up like he’s this prodigy of yours. Cole and I turned to each other and we basically laughed in their faces and walked out. And that was the last meeting we had with Disney.”
