A Cory/Shawn reunion could be in the cards, according to Rider’s official statement.
Ever since Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel signed on to reprise the roles of Cory and Topanga on Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World, die-hard fans have speculated which other Boy Meets World alumni might join the reboot — and it sounds like Rider Strong might be one of them!
Rider, who played Cory’s perfect-haired best friend Shawn, released an official statement Nov. 28 that gave hope for a “Shory” reunion. (And yes, I just gave them a couple name. Want to fight about it?)
“At this point, I have no official involvement,” Rider says. “There might be a chance to see some of the BMW cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years. But Girl Meets World will be, and I think it should be, it’s own show. It will be about Cory and Topanga, their daughter, and a new set of characters … And I, for one, can’t wait to see it evolve.”
Now that that‘s out of the way, can we talk about one of Shawn’s finest moments in all of Boy Meets World history? I’m, of course, referring to the time he dressed up like a girl — a gorgeous girl named Veronica — and drove all the boys at John Adams High wild. Here’s a photo to jog your memory:
If Rider doesn’t end up appearing on Girl Meets World, he’d make an incredible guest judge on the next season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Just saying.
