In 1999, the boys appeared in their first major feature film, Big Daddy, in which they shared the role of a five-year-old boy named Julian who is adopted by Adam Sandler's character, Sonny Koufax.
Though the film received mixed reviews, the two were nominated for multiple awards for their role in the film.
During the early 2000s, the twins appeared in episodes of The Nightmare Room and That '70s Show, as well as in Mad TV and portrayed roles in the feature films The Master of Disguise and Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights.
They both appeared in I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus and Just for Kicks, both of which were family films that received a direct-to-video release.
As with many twins, the two have often played the same role, due to child labor laws in California restricting the amount of time children can be filmed in a day.
Casting twins in a single role thus allows more time for the character to be filmed.
The Sprouses played one character, Jeremiah, in the independent film The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things.
The film was produced in 2004 but not given a theatrical release until March 2006, when it played at three theatres in the United States, ultimately grossing ,000 domestically.
I really liked the acting class, but I was a really self-conscious kid. If I messed up, the older kids would laugh, and I hated it.
Completely genuine, down-to-earth, and hilarious, the 25-year-old from Seattle ("I lived there for three days. I'm an international actor," he jokes) met me at burger mecca Short Order to talk everything about love, relationships, and texting Dos and Don'ts. It was a quite a process because we'd take a ferry to Vancouver from Victoria, and it was literally a 10- to 12-hour day for a two-minute audition.
When I was younger, my mom wanted me to do everything to see what I excelled at, so she put me in this dancing, singing, and acting class.
In 2010, the brothers were accepted to New York University.
They deferred admission for one year, and attended the university from 2011 to 2015.It was a Hummer H2 commercial, which was a really big thing for my first job.
