These beautiful twins began their journey in the world of entertainment when they were barely eight months old, with participation in some commercials and various performances in series.
Later, both children acted with Adam Sandler in A cool dad. Surely you remember Cole in the series Friends, when he played Ben Geller, Ross’ eldest son. However, according to the actor Riverdale, the money vanished.
We lost everything on ‘Friends’ and ‘Awesome Dad’. My mother was wonderful and very artistic, but she was the most irresponsible person you can imagine with money. I think she was the result of some kind of mix of addiction and mental instability, and that’s probably the biggest hurt in my life.

By the time my brother and I got to the Disney Channel, we were good. It was a great help to us. It was, in many ways, a show that saved our lives. It provided us with an amount of stability, consistency, and routine that my brother and I really needed at the time.
