Dylan Sprouse

Working in a Restaurant

But Far From Broke

It's still a sweet life for ex-Disney star Dylan Sprouse ... who came on TMZ Live to explain why he took a gig as a host in a NYC restaurant -- and it's not because he's gone broke.

Dylan, and his twin brother Cole, left their hit Disney show "The Suite Life on Deck" 2 years ago to enroll at NYU ... and there have been several stories claiming Dylan's down on his luck and had to take the hosting job to pay his bills.

But Dylan told Harvey and Ryan the real reason -- and insists he's just livin' the life of a college student.

Good luck! It's refreshing to see a child actor growing up and being responsible.

Good for him for getting a job just for the hell of it. They certainly could've gone the way of the Olsen twins and turned into huge douches who are completely out of touch with reality. Restaurants are such a big part of our daily lives, I think everyone should work in a restaurant at some point just to see what it's like from the other side.

.. and there have been several stories claiming Dylan's down on his luck and had to take the hosting job to pay his bills.

so having a job and earning a living is considered down on your luck?

I think it's cool. We give folks on this site so much crap for everything they do. We scrutinize them for everything and if they have chosen to take their money and go to nyu (my grad school!) and get a real job so that their investments are more sound, that's great. I don't know who these guys are, but they seem to have some good sense about them. I've worked at a couple places in LA and NYC that were co-owned by celebrities and I sure wish they would have had some knowledge about the industry before they bought the place.

The insanity of this is that someone is actually working for a living is ridiculed. The work ethic in today's seems lost. He has a job that's all that needs to be said. He doesn't have a sex tape,he hasn't o'd and tried to sell the photos. HIs parents hopefully said "if you want to go to a school that's 40k a year in a city where an 800 sq ft apt is $3500 dollars a month you have to get a job", so what is he qualified for? He's 19 and never done anything aside from acting. Read this line "Welcome to Hoolihans how many people will be dining with us this evening" I say good for him you bunch of slackers!

These young men seem to be very grounded and my hat is off to the parent(s) who raised them. They also appear to be good role models, at least as of this post.
