Ben Savage, happily on board for “Girl Meets World.”
Get ready for an influx of “World” news! Now that the iconic 90s hit, “Boy Meets World,” is getting a spin-off (finally!), media outlets (ourselves included) are fighting for time with the show’s old stars. Rolling Stone magazine was lucky enough to get the scoop this week from Ben Savage (a.k.a Cory Matthews), who surprisingly admitted he wasn’t initially thrilled on the idea of recreating the classic series. But, eventually he was swayed–the genius storyline involving his onscreen alter-ego’s daughter in “Girl Meets World” sealed the deal. ”I like that concept, because it’s very poetic and it’s kind of passing it off to the next generation,” he said.
Savage also dropped some major news: Production is scheduled to start in February of next year! Casting for the daughter role, however, is still ongoing. “There have been a few names tossed around,” he said. “You know, we’re slowly trying to find the perfect girl.”
The pressure is on as everyone from Brooklyn Decker to MTV’s Snooki have shown excitement for the reboot. “All of it is very flattering,” Savage says.
For 90s nostalgia, don’t forget to catch “Old School Afternoon” episodes of “Boy Meets World” and “Saved By The Bell” every day on MTV2.
