Fans Share Hilarious Reactions to Dylan Sprouse Being Cast in a Chinese Drama
“The Suite Life On Deck” star Dylan Sprouse has been keeping things low-key for the past few years. However, the actor is now back and starring in a Chinese drama that has sparked fans' hilarious reactions.
Subsequently, Sprouse shared shirtless selfies and wrote captions that he was preparing for his role. However, the reality of it all did not dawn upon fans until the trailer came out this week, and their reactions are priceless.
Naturally, those who saw the trailer turned to their social media pages to share their thoughts on the casting choice. One TikTok user excitedly squealed while relaying the news to her followers and praised him for his preparation.
However, another user responded to the TikTok by sharing a slightly different but still lighthearted video. First, she questioned why a white man was starring in a C-drama and referenced “Ghost In The Shell.”
“Ghost In The Shell” is a science fiction film adapted from a Japanese manga of the same name. Unfortunately, the film flopped after receiving criticism for casting Scarlett Johansson as the lead instead of an Asian woman.
One TikTok user even pointed out that Sprouse’s character was actually supposed to be Turkish. Of course, a creator met that with yet another hilarious video playfully mocking Sprouse’s new faux Turk identity.

However, one Twitter user trying to make sense of the casting choice over a famous Chinese singer took the cake. The Twitter user hilariously took the casting situation more personally than others, making for an excellent laugh.
“The Curse of Turandot” is one of Sprouse’s first acting appearances since he has led a traditional college student life. The film is based on the lore of the Opera Turandot by Puccini, and Sprouse will play the role of Calaf.
Although the trailer is out, it is unclear when the film will be available to watch or stream. Nonetheless, we will be here on standby with popcorn, waiting for all the live reactions to the film when it does come out.
