With Disney+ finally in action, the streaming service has got us really nostalgic about a few of our favorite Disney Channel television shows. One of the best was "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" which aired on the station from 2005 to 2008. We know where some of the cast is now, but what is going on with everyone else?
Cole Sprouse (Then)
Cole Sprouse played one of the title character Cody Martin. He and his brother, Dylan, almost exclusively had a career together playing Frankenstein in "Big Daddy" as well as Patrick Kelly in "Grace Under Fire" together. Though Cole also had a role on "Friends" without his brother. This is one of their first shows where they worked together but not playing the same character.

Since "Suite Life," the pair decided to part ways career-wise and Sprouse gained a starring role on the hit CW drama "Riverdale." Sprouse plays Jughead Jones, one of the main characters and narrator of the show. He also starred in a dramatic teen film "Five Feet Apart" which came out earlier this year.
Dylan Sprouse (Then)
Dylan played the other title character, Zack Martin, on "Suite Life." He had a similar career to his brother, both playing the same character in films and shows. Whereas Cody was more studious and intellectual, Zack was much more lazy and rebellious.
