In an interview with the New York Post, Sprouse reflected on his days as playing Ross's son Ben.
"I must have been maybe 7 or 8. I was only in seven episodes, but it’s funny now that people are recognizing me for that because my brother and have been working since we were 8 months old," he says.
Sprouse had a hard time in certain scenes as Ross's son, because like Ross, he was in love with Rachel, aka Jennifer Aniston.
I had a really, really hard time working with [Jennifer] Aniston because I was so in love with her. I was infatuated. I was speechless — I’d get all bubbly and forget my lines and completely blank … It was so difficult. [laughs]
Because all ten seasons are on Netflix, people are calling Jughead Jones/Cody Martin/Cole Sprouse his old, old, old name.
"Having responded to a Disney show for such a long time, people can call me 'Ben' on the street and I will turn around," he says, "It’s a funny little process."
Next time you see Cole Sprouse on the street, just holler "Ben!" and he'll turn around.
