Girl Meets World / May 15th, 2015

EW.com posted an interview with Will Friedle about his return to Girl Meets World as well as sharing an exclusive clip from Girl Meets Mr. Squirrels (it was so hilarious, it gave us watery eyes!). Also, my friend Mar’s 2 year old nephew is the one who Will mentioned in the interview.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How did Eric’s return come about?
WILL FRIEDLE: I woke up one morning, and I watched the show again, and said, “You know, this is the perfect opportunity for me to come back and to work with everybody again, and I really can’t pass this up.” So I called Michael Jacobs and I said, “Can we have lunch?” And he said, “Am I going to be happy?” And I said, “You know what, let’s just go to lunch.” So we went out to lunch at a place called the Grove, and I said to him, “Yeah, I think I’m ready to come back this year.” And he said, “I’ve been waiting for this call since we announced the show!”

Is this how you imagined Eric making his return—coming on as Plays With Squirrels?
You know, no. That’s the joy of Eric—you never knew what he was gonna do, where he was gonna be. The only thing you knew is that he was going to be happy and that he was going to be nice to everyone around him. It didn’t matter if he was sleeping on a buddy’s couch for the rest of his life because he couldn’t get his act together, he’d still be the happy-go-lucky guy. Or he was President of the United States—and either one was possible for Eric. So that was the fun of playing with him. And when they said, “We want you to come back as Plays With Squirrels,” it was like, “Of course. Of course that’s what happened to Eric.”

What was it like being on set as Eric, and not as a visitor?
The audience was so supportive of me that night, clapping and cheering. It felt like coming home, it really did. The only thing I can liken it to is, it’s like going back to the house that you grew up in. The set seemed smaller. I was 16 when I started, so going back at 38, it was kind of like, “Wow this is weird, I’m in my childhood bedroom.” It was really fun. But as much fun as I had, I think the most joy came from watching the kids and how much fun that they had. I was sitting with Ben and Rider, and we were just standing there watching one of the scenes the kids were doing—and I forget who it was, Ben or Rider, leaned over and said, “That’s us.” I mean, we started this show… what, 22 years ago? So it was like, “Man, there we are.”
