'The Suite Life on Deck' Moves Forward, Former Actress Talks About Her Platonic Relationship with 'HSM' Actor
Earlier this year, Disney announced that they’re putting a fresh spin on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, which is set at the Tipton Hotel.  After a couple of years of adventures, the twins were sent to the SS Tipton, a luxury cruise liner in which the show will now be set. Tagged The Suite Life on Deck, the show will follow Zack and Cody along with London, who finds a new friend in Bailey Grant (Debby Ryan), a country girl from Kansas.  The character Bailey replaces Maddie Fitzpatrick as actress Ashley Tisdale left to pursue other acting gigs.

The boys are also trading their indoor wardrobe for a more laid back look complete with longer bangs.  Cole Sprouse admitted, “Sometimes we notice people on the street who look like us.  Occasionally we see someone with the same hair.  I don't know if they took it from us, but they've definitely got it.”

Nonetheless, the boys say that when production ends for The Suite Life on Deck, they’ll venture into another style.  Dylan admits, “The 'Deck Life' clothes are better.  In 'Suite Life' Cody was always in sweater vests, now the wardrobe is more mature.”

When it comes to personal style though, Cole admits that the brothers are very different.  He admitted, “there's these sweats he wears that are just miserable.  He wears them everywhere.”

He adds, “The way I dress is casual.  Usually I scour in the morning for what I can find, but I wouldn't say I don't put any consideration into it.”

Brenda Song, who plays London Tipton on the show, also went on to say that the revamped series is “going to be really, really fun.  'The Suite Life on Deck' is kind of like the same crew, but it's a new show.  It's all the same great things rolled into one, with a different concept.  We're doing a semester at sea, so we're on a cruise ship, and it gets crazier and crazier each week.  I think fans are going to love it.”

Meanwhile, former Suite Life actress Ashley Tisdale is busy promoting her upcoming film, High School Musical: Senior Year with Disney co-stars Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.  She recently came out to clear out the issues about her and Zac being really close friends.

"I've never been attracted to Zac, and he's never been attracted to me -- which is even more amazing!" she told Seventeen Magazine.  "He always says I look hot, and I'm like, 'Aw, thanks Zac,' but really, it's more like siblings than a flirty relationship - he's seriously like my brother."
