'Girl Meets World' News: Uriah Shelton Cast As Cory's Little Brother
Girl Meets World has added The Glades actor Uriah Shelton to the cast to play the part of Cory Matthew’s younger brother Joshua.
Uriah Shelton Cast In 'Girl Meets World'
Shelton will first appear on Disney Channel’s Girls Meets World in an upcoming holiday episode, “Girl Meets Home for the Holidays,” reported E! News. When Boy Meets World wrapped 14 years ago and Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) were in college, Joshua was just a toddler, which makes him about 17 or 18.
Now a teenager, Joshua’s character, lead character Riley’s uncle, is billed as Cory’s “effortlessly cool little bro,” according to E!, which makes it seem like the youngest Matthews boy might have more in common with his eldest brother Eric (Will Friedle). In his first episode, he’ll apparently spend some time hanging out with Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and her rebellious best bud Maya (Sabrina Carpenter).
In addition to welcoming Shelton’s new face in “Girl Meets Home for the Holidays,” the show will also be welcoming a slew of known faces from the original WB show. Betsey Randle and William Russ will be reprising their roles as Cory’s parents – Riley’s grandparents – Amy and Allen Matthews. Rider Strong will also be returning as his character Shawn Hunter.
Girl Meets World premieres on the Disney Channel Friday, June 27 at 9:45 p.m. EST.
