Will Friedle

Friedle stars as the lovable but sometime airhead Eric Matthews, the older brother of his angst-ridden sibling, Cory (Ben Savage), on the seventh season of Boy Meets World.

Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Will is the youngest of three boys and can relate to Cory's plight. "I was always trying to hang out with my brothers when I was younger," he recalls. His older brother, Gary, is a unit trust trader in New York; his middle brother, Greg, is teaching English in Asahikawa, Japan.

Friedle began acting professionally when he was in the fifth grade. At the urging of his drama teacher, he auditioned for a bit part in a professional production of A Doll's House, and soon became one of the child leads.

Will starred in The Wonderful World of Disney's My Date With the President's Daughter and has the leading role in the upcoming Wonderful World of Disney's H-E-Double-Hockeysticks! He also played the lead in the feature film, Trojan War. His television credits include a starring role on True Blue and a guest appearance on Law & Order. He was featured in the television movie, Set for Life, starring Andy Griffith, and ABC's Educating Mom. Will is also the voice of the new Batman in the WB animated series, Batman Beyond.

Friedle, who is currently taking core classes to prepare himself for a career in archaeology, still resides in Connecticut. When he's not studying or in front of a camera, he enjoys writing scripts and short stories.
