Will Friedle is an actor best known for his comedic and voice roles, most notably as underachieving elder brother Eric Matthews on the classic TV sitcom Boy Meets World. He can currently be heard as Star-Lord in Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy animated series and Bumblebee in Transformers: Robots in Disguise.
Will has also recently begun hosting the weekly series Painter’s Guild for the online network Geek & Sundry. 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.
