'Boy Meets World' spinoff news: Teo Halm cast as Cory and Topanga's son in 'Girl Meets World'

teo-halm-boy-meets-world.jpgThe Matthews family is growing! As Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel prepare to return to their iconic "Boy Meets World" roles for the upcoming spinoff "Girl Meets World," executive producer Michael Jacobs has added a new face to the fam.

Newcomer Teo Halm is set to play Cory and Topanga's son, Elliott, older brother to series lead Riley (Rowan Blanchard).

Elliott will start off as a sort of "thinking man's jock," but his role will change a bit as the series progresses. In fact, Cory and Topanga are worried that he may have inherited the "Eric Matthews Algernon" gene -- a fun nod to the fact that on "Boy Meets World," Will Friedle's character seemed to grow dumber and weirder every season.

Elliott is described as "good looking, well built, funny and insightful in his observations. Good hearted except for his dedication toward using Riley as his wrestling practice dummy."

Halm's casting was first reported by TVLine.
