Former Disney star Dylan Sprouse has gone from “The Suite Life” to “Your waiter will be with you shortly.”

The actor, who starred with his twin brother Cole in Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody,” now has a job working as host as a New York restaurant. Don’t fret however, when the pictures went viral, Dylan posted on Tumblr that he is admirably there for the experience, not because his Disney money has gone up in smoke.

“So many pictures have gotten out that I’m now working as a host at a restaurant in NY,” he wrote. “To clear up the air (which is admittedly pretty rude), I did not take this job because I ‘lost all my money’, I am financially secure, and took this job as a way to primarily feed my over bountiful video game addiction. I also too this as a way to try a new experience, working somewhat below the means I’m used to, as well as a way to socialize and get out of the house. I feel most comfortable when I’m working and doing something, to criticize someone of that is pretty odd. I will potentially return to acting someday, but in no way do I think any experience is a step down for me, but rather a new step in another direction.

Sprouse and his brother were reportedly the richest teenage twins in the world in 2010. according to NBC News.

“The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” went off the air in 2008.
