Now, the 23-year-old actor is back and ready to take on his next role: the iconic Jughead Jones from the Archie comics.
However, Jughead sports dark, black hair, which contrasts with Cole's blond locks. (Although, his hair's darkened some since his Suite Life days.)
Filming for the CW pilot Riverdale is happening now in Vancouver, and Cole is rocking the Jughead look.
And seems like he's gonna do the role justice.
He's been taking pics with fans, and we just can't get over how different he looks.
But he still has the same precious smile.
Also, snaps to Megan Bravo for that Suite Life pun.
And he's making the most adorkable videos.
Yesterday (March 14), he shared more model pics that highlight his new hair.
Uh oh, looks like Agnes will have more photos to rank, Cole.
Cole's had black hair before, back when he shared the role of Older Jeremiah with Dylan in the 2004 heartbreaking drama The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things.
If you've seen pics on Tumblr of the Sprouse twins dressed a woman, it's from that movie.
Cole and Dylan didn't sport black hair during the whole film, but they did have it for a portion of the time. To be fair, I can't tell which twin this is in the photo, but you get the idea.
While Cole's hair may have changed, his hilarious personality is still the exact same. And we wouldn't want him any other way. 😂
