5. Mena Suvari
The American Pie and American Beauty star appeared briefly in the season two episode, “Danger Boy,” as one of two girls on an Eric/Shawn double-date that Cory wasn’t invited on. Bonus: Not-even-a-bit-ironic nineties cropped top fashion.
4. Shane West
Standing in the way between Cory and Topanga? New boyfriend West a.k.a. Nick, prior to roles on E.R. and A Walk To Remember (Start at 12:05).
3. Fred Savage
Sure, this was after he was already famous, but we couldn’t resist throwing Ben Savage’s big brother up on this list. In a total 180 from his Wonder Years days, Savage played a professor at the gang’s college who makes a move on Topanga. Who knew Kevin Arnold could be so sleazy?
2. Keri Russell
In the seventh episode of the series, way back in 1993, Russell guest-starred as Mr. Feeny’s niece Jessica whom Eric develops a crush on (Start at 11:10).
1. Jennifer Love Hewitt
Party of Five star Hewitt spoofed herself — and Scream — in one very creepy season five episode (Start at 4:00).
