25 Little-Known Facts About Boy Meets World

10. Linda Cardellini played Lauren, the girl who came between Cory and Topanga in Season Five. This would not be the last time Cardellini was embroiled in a pop-culture love triangle. Her Boy Meets World appearance happened a year before she starred on Freaks and Geeks, the show that introduced her to Jason Segel. Cardellini dumped Segel for being too fat, after she saw him naked. This moment was immortalized in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, as Segel’s script was based on Cardellini. This makes her Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis the probable Drew Barrymore surrogate.

11. Five different actors play Topanga Lawrence’s parents throughout the show. Her mother, Rhiannon, is first played by Smallville’s Annette O’Toole (aka Mrs. Kent) but then replaced with Desperate Housewives’ Marcia Cross, which is hilarious for anyone who has seen Melrose Place. Her father, Jedediah, will be played by Peter Tork of The Monkees, Christopher Guest regular Michael McKean and Mark Harelik. The show also used five theme songs, so it might be an Illuminati thing.
