Cole Sprouse Hits Out At People Criticising The Live Action Cast Of Kim Possible
He's not here for people slamming a "couple of kids" chasing their dreams.
Cole Sprouse couldn’t be less here for grown adults slating the actors set to portray Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable in the upcoming live action movie.
The Riverdale actor has pointed out that vulnerable teenagers can take this sort of criticism to heart after fans of the 00s series argued that Sadie Stanley and Sean Giambrone weren’t who they envisioned for the lead roles.

Having experienced the pressures of being a young actor in the industry, Cole took to Twitter to encourage social-media users to lay off a “couple of kids” just chasing their dreams.
"Lot of adults in this post directing hate towards a couple kids simply because their cartoon doesn’t look the same anymore," he pointed out. “You guys need to grow the hell up and realize you’re talking about kids who are likely happy to have gotten the job. Kids who, in some way, might hear you.”
While everyone is entitled to offer their opinions on casting decisions, it’s worth bearing in mind that this kind of negativity can and usually does get back to the people in question – and could potentially take the shine off of what should be an exciting few months.
The movie is set to go in production this Summer and will make its debut in 2019. It will be the first major role for 16-year-old Sadie, while 18-year-old Sean is already a familiar face from his recurring role in ABC series, The Goldbergs.
Anyone else kind of loving protective older brother Cole?
