‘Girl Meets World’ Casts Newcomer Teo Halm as Cory and Topanga’s Son
The Girl Meets World cast just keeps on growing! TVLine is reporting that newcomer Teo Halm has been cast in Disney Channel’s upcoming reboot of its hit 90’s show, Boy Meets World. Teo will play Elliott, the son of Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel), and the brother of the show’s titular “girl”, Riley Matthews, played by Rowan Blanchard.
Teo will play Riley’s younger brother, with Entertainment Weekly saying,”This guy will start the series as a ‘thinking man’s jock. He’s described as ‘good looking, well built, funny and insightful in his observations. Good hearted except for his dedication toward using Riley [his sister] as his wrestling practice dummy.”
Another cast member that was added somewhat recently is Sabrina Carpenter, who will play Riley’s BFF Maya, who is described as “rebellious.” Production on the pilot is set to star some time this month, and if all goes as planned, it will start airing on Disney Channel for it’s 2013 to 2014 season.
News of the popular show’s reboot came about back in October when it was confirmed that both Ben and Danielle would be reprising their roles a second time around.
