Judging by you commenters – and the rest of the Internet – people are just a little bit excited about the Boy Meets World reboot. Add in the fact that we now know for sure that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are returning (!!!) to the planned Disney Channel spinoff Girl Meets World and fans are already clamoring for more to join them. This means you, Fee-Fee-Feeny. But in our excitement as we started to rewatch old episodes, we discovered that there are quite a few famous faces to come out of the show, beyond the main cast. Cameo appearances in Girl Meets World? Doubtful, but it sure is fun to look back at these in-no-particular-order actors who also once upon a time were traveling down a road we call life with the Boy Meets World gang.
10. Adam Scott
He may play a Star Trek fanfiction writer now on Parks & Rec, but nerdy Ben would have gotten beaten up by Scott’s Boy Meets World character, tough guy temporary ringleader Griff.
9. Brittany Murphy
Murphy sadly passed away in 2009, but prior to that she was a rom-com queen starring in Clueless, Just Married, and more serious fare like 8 Mile. She was in a few episodes in the early seasons of Boy Meets World as a friend of Topanga’s who goes on an ill-fated date with Cory in an attempt to get Cory and Topanga together (finally!).
8. Marcia Cross
One of two actresses who played Topanga’s mom, Cross was well-known for her work on Melrose Place, but we were still years away from her iconic Desperate Housewives character Bree Van De Kamp.
7. Linda Cardellini
You may love the Freaks & Geeks star, but she was no fan favorite on Boy Meets World. On the ill-fated ski trip, she got in between Cory and Topanga, earning her the hate of many a self-respecting nineties preteen.
6. Rue McClanahan
The Golden Girl, who passed away in 2010, played Cory’s grandmother in the season one episode “Grandma Was A Rolling Stone” (Start at 4:30).
NEXT: Felicity, an American Pie star and more!
