The Drew Barrymore Show: Cole Sprouse opens up on Suite Life reboot, his crush on Jennifer Aniston as a kid
When asked if he would be interested in a reboot, Cole Sprouse explained why he is not a big fan of reboots.
Drew Barrymore recently hosted Riverdale star Cole Sprouse on her The Drew Barrymore Show and got the actor talking about several things. One of them was the reboot of their hit show as kids 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody'. In recent times, we have seen reboots of popular shows such as Gossip Girl and Lizzie McGuire (which was eventually cancelled). When asked if he would be interested in a reboot, Cole Sprouse explained why he is not a big fan of reboots.
He said, "Reboots are a tricky thing, you know? The original shows, when they become successful, sit in this little golden plate of nostalgia and when you modernize it and go back to it, it has the potential to really disenfranchise the original fanbase so it’s a very, very touchy thing. I am asked all the time if Dylan and I are going to do a Suite Life reboot and I go, ‘No, absolutely not.’"
Apart from starring in these two hit shows, Cole also played a prominent part as a child actor on Friends. Playing Ben Geller, Ross' son, he revealed to Drew that he even as a kid he had a huge crush on Jennifer Aniston.
"Yeah, I did. It actually made it quite difficult to work in front of her I must admit. I was a child, I would stammer a lot and I would forget my lines. I feel like I’d maintain my composure a bit more effectively now but it was quite difficult when I was a kid. And I was teased a little bit by the crew because they saw it and I would just forget and be looking at her, but then the whole world had a crush on Jennifer Aniston so."
Cole was earlier dating Riverdale Lili Reinhart. However, the couple parted ways and the actor is now rumoured to be dating Ari Fournier.
