Cole Sprouse Reveals Why He Thinks "Ben" Disappeared from "Friends"


The Sprouse twins are at the height of their careers...for the second time now. But what you might not remember is that Cole Sprouse, who now stars in Riverdale, once played Ross's son, Ben, in the popular series, Friends.

Ben was probably my favorite character because he was so dang cute, but his role on the show was short lived - only lasting 7 episodes before he mysteriously disappeared.

During an episode of GQ's "Actually Me" series, Cole was asked how he felt about "basically being killed off of Friends". In response, Cole said,

"Critics would agree that Ross was never really the most present father," he said. "And so it doesn't surprise me too much."

Sooooo is he confirming the long-standing theory that Ross lost custody of Ben because he was kind of a terrible father?

Later in the interview, Cole goes on to explain why his brother did not appear in the show. You can check out the full interview below.
