Rider Strong, better known as Cory’s best friend Shawn, has kept a pretty low profile since Boy Meets World. Despite working steadily over the last 16 years, he’s only had a few high-profile guest spots on shows such as Castle and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. After a bit of back-and-forth, the Columbia University graduate agreed to join the cast of Girl Meets World as a recurring guest star. He’s reportedly been even more involved with the show behind the scenes, directing more than a dozen episodes, according to IMDb.
Will Friedle, aka Cory’s older brother, Eric, has become a prolific voice-over actor in recent years. His vocal credits include Kim Possible: Thundercats and the TV animated version of Guardians of the Galaxy, in which he plays Star-Lord. Friedle has also appeared on episodes of Girl Meets World. In 2015, he confirmed on Twitter that he’s engaged to be married. He officially said “I do” in September 2016.
