Matthew Timmons goes crab crazy in this still from The Suite Life Movie, premiering FRIDAY on Disney Channel.
We caught up with Matthew, 18, in Vancouver to chat about the movie, twins and what’s happening with Woody. Check it:
On where and what Woody is doing: “The funny thing about Woody is that, in the movie and the series, he just bounces around. He’s Zack’s best friend but yet he’s friends with everyone and in the movie, he’s kind of doing the same thing. He bounces from friend to friend. In the movie, though, Woody starts off with Zack. Cody has given this letter to Zack to give to Bailey and we’re trying to ‘lose’ the letter. Then later on, Woody is with Bailey and trying to be her friend and comfort her.”
On the series finally getting a movie: “I thought it was great. Finally. Even back when they were ending Zack and Cody and doing a spinoff [with On Deck], I was thinking ‘Why take down a great show so soon?’ I was so excited about the movie. It was definitely time. The fans have been asking about it for the longest time. They [the twins and Brenda] have been doing this for six years and it’s such an established show that we’ve definitely been waiting for it.”
On if Woody would be a good match for Bailey or London: “(laughs) I love this question. You know, Cody and Bailey just work so well together that Woody and Bailey…it’s like Ross and Rachel on Friends. You can’t really imagine those two without each other. And London…she’s just in lala land. I don’t think London even remembers Woody’s name half the time (laughs). I love Brenda, she’s so good at being London and just a great actress all around. But it’s kind of funny, on the series in some episodes you’ll see Woody actually get the girl. But after that episode they never re-appear. Woody’s a player.”
On comparing Suite Life to his obsession, Friends: “I love that show. I can tell you what’s going to happen next, the lines…everything. But I was watching it the other night with Debby back at the hotel and I kept really comparing it to our show. The friendships, the whole show is based upon the closeness of six friends and it’s actually how ours is. You see Cody and Bailey, and Zack and Woody and then there’s London and Moseby (a father figure to her). You actually see why it’s been on the air for six years.”
The Suite Life Movie premieres TOMORROW @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
Only TWO more days until The Suite Life Movie premieres!!!
JJJ sat down with Cole Sprouse on the set earlier this year and chatted with him about putting on his producer hat, the challenges Cody will face and what he really wanted to see happen in the movie. Check it:
On the series finally getting a movie: “The thing about that is that we really haven’t been itching to get a movie out of the series. We didn’t expect it to come anytime soon since we were so involved in the show. But I know they [the writers and everyone else] have been wanted to shoot a movie and it was just a matter of time. I, personally, wanted to see the cast more together in the film because right now it’s just Dylan and I and it’s lonely in Vancouver (laughs). I wanted a bit more scenes with everyone…but that’s okay. We’ll get them. It’s actually kind of fun by ourselves for a little while.”
On the challenges Cody has to face: “Dealing with Zack is his main thing. The strain between Zack and Cody is huge and you definitely get to see how both of them deal with it and finding a common ground in the middle.”
On his executive producer role: “It’s great. Dylan and I know exactly what we want and know how the characters are. People do trust us with the skill. It’s all about trust in that role. Cast and crew will come to use creatively to ask about lines and that kind of thing. We definitely put a lot of effort and creativity into it.”
On the theme of the movie: “The theme of the movie that Dylan and I really want is lighthearted-ness. We don’t want it dramatic at all. That’s not how On Deck or Zack and Cody ever played. We want it light and funny, nothing too serious and that’s they way it’s going so far. There are some definitely action sequences that you’ll get to see.”
More clips and interviews still to come! The Suite Life Movie premieres THIS Friday, March 25 @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
JustJaredJr.com sat down with Debby, 17, on the set of the movie recently and found out all about Bailey’s mission in the flick. Check it:
JJJ: How do you feel about The Suite Life finally getting its own DCOM? Debby Ryan: “It’s so exciting! Obviously, I was a fan of the show before I ever got a role on it. It’s cool because it’s not a show that’s really hyped. We are really the only show on Disney right now that has no merchandising. I like to say that we’re the secret of Disney (laughs). They’ve actually been talking about this show having a DCOM for five years.”
JJJ: What challenges will Bailey come up against? DR: “It’s all about the communication with Cody (Cole Sprouse) and trying to make things right between them. The fact that he’s at this internship makes it ten times harder for Bailey.”

Woohoo! We have a release date for the much-anticipated The Suite Life movie — Friday, March 25th!
The new comedy adventure movie takes place during spring break as Cody (Cole Sprouse) gets an opportunity to participate in a prestigious internship program. However, when twin brother Zack (Dylan Sprouse) destroys billion-dollar scientific equipment, Cody is kicked out of the program. Soon thereafter, the brothers are approached to join the Gemini Project, a high-tech research center studying the dynamics between twins.
Shockingly, they find themselves interconnected in a way they’ve never been before: When one twin experiences a sensation, thought or feeling, the other twin feels it too. While this newfound revelation helps the boys see eye to eye for the first time, it puts them in more danger than they could have imagined.
