Shawn Hunter is the first "bad boy" I ever fell for. The boy who came from a broken family, was briefly adopted by a teacher, and would later discover he has a long lost brother, was the total oppostie of his BFF Cory Matthews who came from the pinnacle of perfect, family. You always felt bad for Shawn, like he was a lost puppy just trying to find a home. He was just one reason why Boy Meets World was, and will continue to be, one of my favorite TV shows.
So what has he been up to since then? Well like his co-star Ben Savage (ssssss), he spent some time in college and away from Hollywood after Boy Meets World ended. However, unlike Ben, Rider has since returned to the world of cameras and scripts and most recently was spotted at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York where Rider and his brother, Shiloh, debuted their new comedy short, Dungeon Master. Apparently, Rider and his brother were addicted to D&D and that is what inspired their new film.
I don't care much for D&D, but I have recently discovered the sci-fi and semi-gamer within me, so I kind of feel like Rider and I would be totally perfect together. Maybe I'll see him at Comic-Con this year *fingers crossed*
Interesting facts, according to his IMDB page: - Full name is Rider King Strong, "If I ever become a porn star, I won't have to change my name." (Please don't become a porn star, that's a Screech move, not classy) - Graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University, 2004 (such a smarty, I love me a man with a brain) - One of his close friends is Will Friedle, who was one of the other cast members of the show "Boy Meets World" (1993). They see each other often. (how precious is that, they KIT)
