The Suite Life of Zack & Cody Cast: Then vs. Now

The Disney Channel series starred twin brothers Dylan and Cole Sprouse as Zack and Cody Martin, respectively, and began in March 2005. The twins lived in the Tipton Hotel because their mother was the lounge singer so they had free reign of a luxury hotel, and later a cruise ship. The Suite Life of Zack and Cody followed the escapades of Zack and Cody Martin, twins who were notorious for getting into mischief and terrorizing management.

‘’The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” made staying in a hotel seem like a fantasy. After the original program ended, several of the cast members returned for the Suite Life on Deck spinoff series, which premiered from 2008 to 2011. Here’s what the cast has been up to in the 15 years since the show began.

Cole Sprouse as Cody Martin

Then: Cole had already appeared in one of the most well-known TV shows of all time, Friends, as Ross Geller’s son Ben, but he rose to fame on Disney Channel after portraying Cody Martin, the quieter and nerdier of the twins, who went along with Zack’s pranks and frequently got himself into trouble as a consequence.
