Cole Sprouse has been a star ever since he was the little kid stealing your heart on Big Daddy and Friends. Later, we laughed along with him as he flexed his comedic muscles on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and The Suite Life on Deck with his twin brother Dylan. And over the past few years, he’s proven himself to be quite good as the teen heartthrob sidekick on Riverdale. But now Sprouse is about to make us cry our hearts out as he tries his hand as brooding bad boy love interest along with the cast of YA romance Five Feet Apart.
Based on the novel Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, the upcoming film hits theaters March 15 and follows Stella, a teenager living with cystic fibrosis. Stella spends most of her time in the hospital and abiding by the “six foot rule” from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which means she can’t get within six feet of any other cystic fibrosis patient to prevent cross-infection. While she’s always followed the rules, and she’s this close to getting her coveted lung transplant, meeting and falling in love with charming bad boy Will has the potential to change everything. The only problem? He also has cystic fibrosis, and they can’t get within the aforementioned safe distance to be with each other or else they could both die.
If the trailer for Five Feet Apart, featuring a swelling pop ballad, didn’t already tip you off, this movie is going to make you cry. It’s like if The Fault In Our Stars and Grey’s Anatomy had an even more emotional, dramatic medical drama baby. Whether or not Stella and Will find a way to love each other from a safe distance or risk everything for love, this is definitely going to be a tearjerker. But who are all the actors who are all the characters that are going to make you bawl uncontrollably? Check out our cast guide for Five Feet Apart to get to know all the faces and names now.
