Will Friedle will be appearing at Awesome Con on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Will Friedle has spent nearly 30 years shifting seamlessly between on-screen and voice work. Perhaps best known as elder brother Eric Matthews on the classic TV sitcom Boy Meets World, he can also currently be heard as Star-Lord in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated series and Bumblebee in Transformers: Robots in Disguise.
Will can also be seen as the host of Painter’s Guild for the online network Geek & Sundry, which just launched its second season. It’s a return of sorts to his beginnings as a co-host for Nickelodeon’s Don’t Just Sit There in 1988. From 1993-2000, Will took Eric Matthews from high school through college on Boy Meets World; 15 years later he returned to the role of now Senator Matthews on the Disney Channel series Girl Meets World for four episodes.
As Boy Meets World drew to a close, Will segued into voice acting, taking up the mantle of Batman for a new generation in the now iconic role of Terry McGinnis/Batman in Batman Beyond. Roles as Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Nightwing in Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts and Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem; and Deadpool in Ultimate Spider-Man followed. To a generation of Disney fans, however, he’ll always be the beloved Ron Stoppable, sidekick to the brave Kim Possible. Will was also Lion-O in the rebooted ThunderCats animated series, Doyle in The Secret Saturdays; and Bumblebee in Transformers: Prime and Transformers Prime Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising, as well as Transformers: Robots in Disguise.
