Remember Ben from Friends? You know, the child of Ross (David Schwimmer) and Carol (Anita Barone and Jane Sibbett)? He first appeared in “The One With the Birth” and was played by four different actors over the character’s lifespan.
Well as it turns out, this is what Cole Sprouse, the actor who played Ben from Season 6 to 8, looks like now.
Not too shabby, right? Well, save the cigarette. We’re not completely down with the actual smoke. We prefer our smoke in physical physique form only.
Hard to believe that this was the same kid.
Maybe it’s the black-and-white photography? Or perhaps it’s the luxurious long hair…

Either way, it’s totally working for him…
Perhaps the reason we’re so floored by these pictures is the simple fact that it’s the first time we’ve seen Sprouse in an adult light. Until now, he’s been mostly relegated to childlike roles thanks to shows like The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
Would it be too much to ask that he also appear on the upcoming Friends reunion? We guess given the fact that the actual former Friends themselves are still being courted, that might be a long shot.
In the meantime, we’ll just hope he has a more grown up role soon.
