Cole is featured on the current issue of Hero Magazine! According to its official website, he talks about graduating NYC and escaping the trappings of being a kid star. The beautiful photos were taken by Jessica Haye and Clark Hsiao.
More news regarding Cole’s most recent photo session have been released, as it is featured on the February issue of L’UOMO VOGUE (already in stands) along with an article that the magazine has published on their website. A behind the scenes video has already been released, and you can watch it bellow. Additional outtakes have been added to our gallery.
From Disney camp to the reboot of Twin Peaks: Cole Sprouse, star, along with his twin brother Dylan, of the beloved teen saga “The suite life of Zack & Cody”, plays Jughead Jones in “Riverdale”, the CW series that Netflix is distributing worldwide (in Italy from January, 27th coinciding with the United States), in which the characters of the famous Archie Comics of the 1940’s are transplanted to the present day, where a film noir atmosphere imbues an iconic American small town. After the success of “Stranger things”, this could be the new series to glue us to the screen, analyzing obsessively, looking for nostalgic references and clues to decode. What is certain is that it will be difficult to recognize, in the oddball Jughead, the baby-faced blond kid, born in Arezzo (where his parents were teaching English) and raised in California, who lived in the candy-coated world of the Disney Channel for eight years.
But the sabbatical that the Sprouse brothers took since leaving the Los Angeles studios (we saw them also in “Big daddy” with Adam Sandler) to devote themselves to their studies at New York University (they both graduated with honors from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study: Cole in archeology – his grandfather was a geologist – and his twin in Game Design) turned them into men. The role of Jughead, the first that Cole has chosen to play after years away from the set, is that of Archie’s best friend, a guy portrayed in the original comic as asexual – a character type that had not yet appeared in the mainstream.
“There’s narratives within the show that are going to really resonate with a younger audience but also with families. I’m a believer that we should support various forms of representation because they clearly resonate with unheard groups of people, and for such a huge project like Riverdale this kind of representation is fundamentally important. In the beginning I really thought hard about that with the creators and authors of the show. The way this first seasons is shaping up is that this is not going to be a narrative that’s touched upon, which I don’t really mind you know: I think there’s really potential and room for that narrative in the future. I would love, love, love that representation to be more at the forefront”.
A new photo session featuring Cole for L’UOMO VOGUE has been released, and our gallery has been updated with four outtakes! We’re not quite sure of which issue the editorial will be on, but will keep you informed.
