Lee Norris To Guest Star On 'Girl Meets World'
Norris was shown in a still from the Girl Meets World set on Wednesday, sporting a preppy blue blazer, turtleneck and slacks. Norris, who played Minkus for several years on Boy Meets World, recently opened up about getting the chance to reprise the beloved nerdy character.
“I’ve had a great time being back on set with some of my old friends,” Norris told E! News. “It still amazes me how many people love and remember Minkus, and I’m excited for the fans to catch up with him after all these years.”
'Boy Meets World' Alums
Boy Meets World alums Ben Savage (Corey Matthews) and Daniel Fishel (Topanga Matthews née Lawrence) were the first to sign up for the spinoff, playing parents to the series lead Riley Matthews, played by Rowan Blanchard. Their son, Auggie Matthews, is being played by August Maturo.
In the pilot episode, fans of the original series will get a chance to see William Daniels as Mr. Feeny, the principal that ended up following the crew to college. Though Ryder Strong (Shawn Hunter), Will Friedle (Eric Matthews) and Maitland Ward (Rachel) have all stopped by the Girl Meets World set, none of the actors have confirmed involvement in the Disney show.
After Boy Meets World ended in 1998, Norris went on to star on One Tree Hill for all eight seasons as Mouth. He’ll next be seen on the big screen in David Fincher’s Gone Girl with Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike and Neil Patrick Harris.
