He didn't say that Shawn won't be on it – he said that so far, he hasn't been approached. He said he hopes that original cast members can get guest roles, to see what they've been up to, but that the focus should be on Cory, Topanga and their daughter.
Maybe he'll do a guest spot as some point. What about Will Friedle? Can someone track him down for the show please!
I was so in love with Shawn Hunter. He was mostly why I was excited about a sequel.
Never got into the whole Boy meets World phenom. Now, throw Wil Wheaton in anything and I will fan girl the f out.
Aww, what a sweet message. This is why he was my crush 15+ years ago. I hope that they all get to come back in some way–except Morgan. I never gave a crap about her.
@karen – which morgan would they even choose?
Also, some people are forgetting that Riley will have an uncle about the same age as her.
Never saw the show but he sounds like a nice man.
*karen* I'd like to see original recipe Morgan. She was a doll. Then they recast her because she could not act at all and made a joke about how Cory hadn't seen her in forever and she said something like she had been grounded for a really long time.
@ButterKwup, I remember that. They did a similar thing when Becky#1 came back on Roseanne. Something like, "What took you so long? It seems like you've been gone for two years!"
I <3 U SHAWN. SO EXCITED FOR THISSSSSSSSS.
As much as I loved boy meets world continuity was definitely not the show writers forte. It was ridic how much they changed backstories. Still excited for this tho..
I always figured Rider would be the douchey one of the group, but he sounds really down-to-earth and well-adjusted — especially for a child star.
Also Rider Strong is the porniest name ever. Love Shawn Hunter!
He does magic now? I love him even more.
Anyone remember when JLH guest starred on the Halloween episode cause she was dating the actor who played Eric? That was a good one.
I didn't watch the show, but have seen a couple episodes here and there. I hope they have him on the show. He was good! And he sounds like a really nice guy IRL.
I definitely had a crush on him. Loved this show!!!
I use to feel so bad for Shawn Hunter. His family was trailer park trash and it was just tragic how his character was thrown in such sad situations. Didn't he end up with Topanga's bff? I hope he does at least a cameo so we can find out if Shawn Hunter experienced some joy in life. I cried when his dad died on the show. Oh Rider Strong, such a sexy name too. he MUST come back!
He's going to be back. He was the female viewers Topanga after all. Ben Savage? Please no. All the girls had his tiger beat posters on their wall. He WAS the Farrah Fawcett of our generation. The poor, beaten, just needs a little love, bad boy. I wasn't a fan of him or the show, but even I can see that.
I wouldn't be surprised if the show does go beyond pilot (which seems certain given the amount of love BMW seems to have that I never knew about) that Rider Strong will make a guest appearance. It's nice to see child actor turn out normal and humble. Rider is a class act with his statement and sentiment to BMW and it's many fans over the years. Good for him.
Bring back Shawn Hunter!One of my original crushes… Used to have Tigerbeat posters of Rider up in my room.
and this is how it's done. It would be great if all the child/former starts and one hit wonders would embrace their past fame like this. Appreciate the advantages it gives you, and handle it with class and grace. Reading this letter definitely brought my childhood crush back just a little bit.
I agree with LottaColada Bring back Eric pls! he was hilarious!
Wow, what a great guy. I still love catching BMW in reruns. I expect to see Shawn, Eric & Mr. Feeny in guest spots on GMW. Can you imagine Cory & Topanga leaving Uncle Eric in charge for a weekend?
Oh yes, had posters of him along with the ones of the two leads from the sandlot.
