He played the part of Ross Geller's son, Ben Geller. The role of Ben brought Cole immense fame and recognition. When recalling his days of shooting "FRIENDS," Cole confessed that the most complicated task was to do scenes with

In 2016, Cole bagged the role of Jughead Jones in the famous teen drama, "
." Initially, he was not sure about acting in the show, but after hearing about the dark tone of the show, he agreed. Initially, he was suggested to audition for the role of Archie Andrews, but Cole knew that if he would work in the show, then only as Jughead Jones (and we thank God for that).
We are well aware that no one else could've performed the role of Jughead Jones better than Cole Sprouse. Cole is now one of the most sought-after, and loved artists.

They both are the millennial's relationship goals. Cole Sprouse is a Disney star, and now a versatile actor. He is a passionate and a very talented photographer. Not many people know that Cole got into photography as a way to battle Depression. He even took a break from acting because playing a particular role for a very long time had a significant impact on his every day life.
