Ben Savage basically looks the same, 22 years after Boy Meets World first aired. After BMW ended, he attended Stanford University, which required him to intern for U.S. Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA at the time) before his 2004 graduation. He took a small break from acting and came back to star in Car Babes and Palo Alto, CA. He's appeared on numerous TV shows, such as Bones, Shake It Up, and most recently Criminal Minds. In 2012 he announced on his Twitter that he would star in the BMW sequel Girl Meets World, a show following the life of Cory and Topanga's daughter Riley, beginning in 2014.

He's been in the films Darkening Sky and Penthouse, as well as appearing on the shows Bones, Veronica Mars, and Castle.

Will Friedle is probably best known for his time as older brother Eric Matthews on Boy Meets World, but his voice work as Ron Stoppable on Kim Possible is a close second. After his time on the popular Disney cartoon series ended in 2007, he's been extremely active as a voice-over actor, working on the popular shows Batman Beyond, Justice League, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and Transformers: Robots in Disguise. It was recently announced he would voice Star-Lord/Peter Quill in the animated Guardians of the Galaxy series. Like most of the Matthews family, Will Friedle reprised his role and appeared on Girl Meets World, and is probably our favorite guest so far. In 2014 he joined the world of Twitter and his tweets are the greatest things to ever exist.

William Daniels has been pretty busy (for a man close to 90) since Boy Meets World. He was in the popular films Blades of Glory and The Benchwarmers and appeared on the very popular shows The Closer and Grey's Anatomy. What's most important is that he reprised his role as the iconic character Mr. Feeny on Girl Meets World.

Lindsay Ridgeway really hasn't been active in Hollywood these last 15 years. She did a brief stint on Totally Spies! from 2003-2004 and that's it. While she did appear with the other Morgan for Entertainment Weekly's BMW reunion, there isn't much news on what she's been up to.

He's been fairly active since then, popping up on hit TV-shows, like 3rd Rock From the Sun, Las Vegas, Dexter, and the popular teen show, Pretty Little Liars. It's rumored that some time in 2015 he will return as Mr. Tuner for Girl Meets World. We're keeping our fingers crossed.

Lee Norris played the most loveable geek on Boy Meets World and we were all pretty upset Minkus didn't go to college with the gang. Norris immediately was on a few episodes of the popular WB show, Dawson's Creek before landing his big gig as Marvin "Mouth" McFadden on the hit show One Tree Hill from 2003-2012. He appeared in the 2014 film Gone Girl, but more importantly he reprised his role of Minkus for Girl Meets World. Minkus is the father of Farkle, friend of Cory and Topanga's daughter Riley.

Post Boy Meets World, Suplee took a more serious turn in his acting, appearing in the critically acclaimed films American History X, as a Nazi-skinhead, a rapist in Vulgar, and footballer Louie Lastik in Remember The Titans. From 2005-2009 he starred on the show My Name is Earl with Jason Lee. In 2011, TMZ announced Suplee lost over 200 pounds, which he credits to "riding bikes". From 2011-2013 he was on Raising Hope and was in the Oscar-nominated film Wolf of Wall Street, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.

Right after his time on Boy Meets World, Blake (who goes by Blake Sennett) was on 3rd Rock From The Sun and Once Again. But then he didn't act again until the 2009 short film Water Pills. Those years between acting, he was the lead guitarist for Rilo Kiley and lead guitarist/singer for Elected. Currently, he leads the band Night Terrors of 1927.

Danny McNulty really did not get up to much after Boy Meets World, but that's okay because he came back as Harley, to play a recurring character for Girl Meets World. He's pretty sweet on Twitter, if you need some Harley kindness in your life.
