'Boy Meets World' actor Anthony Tyler Quinn (Mr. Turner!) scores 'Pretty Little Liars' role


It’s a big day for Boy Meets World alums! First Ben Savage books Bones, and now this!

EW had learned exclusively that Mr. Turner, erm, Anthony Tyler Quinn is coming to Rosewood.

Quinn will play Ron, an old friend and colleague of Aria’s dad Byron (Chad Lowe), who returns to town from overseas, with a 16-year-old hottie son in tow. Quinn, whose other credits include Melrose Place and Caroline in the City, is currently only in one episode, but is scheduled to appear in episodes that will air in early 2012, when the second half of season 2 gets underway.

Fellow ’90 children, is anyone else feeling like today is our day?

    Yes! I’m excited about this news. He was one of my favorite parts of Boy Meets World…along with Rider Strong, and Will Friedle, of course. This is great news!

    • What?

      Will Friedle was the best part of BMW – I will never understand why his career never took off, he was hilarious and good looking. As for Mr. Turner, I am still not sure why they wrote off his character without an explanation. The other BMW mystery is why they changed the actresses who played Morgan – the first was the best.

      • Flip

        Nope, the second Morgan was waaaaaaaaay better.

      • What?

        the first Morgan was adorable and funny – I would have loved to see the continue with her adventures in high school, they could have called it Girl Meets World. The second Morgan was an annoying brat.

        OH GOD-I so agree! I love Will Friedle. He is my dreamworld husband. Eric totally made the show for me. I could relate to him , and he always made me laugh. Not to mention Will is cute/handsome as HE-L-L.

        After that bomb of a movie he was in ” National Lampoons Gold Diggers”-he became less interested in movies and tv work. And more into voice work. He is currently the voice of Liono on Thundercats.

      • McProphet

        He was the voice of Batman Beyond too. He’s very talented!

      • Bonnie

        Will Friedle actually does have a good career but mainly doing voice overs. :)

    • Lincoln

      All this Wil Friedle love. Ugh. His character was annoying. They totally dumbed him down after the first season. He went from Mr. Hunky Popular to the school male version of a bimbo.

      • Alyssa

        you talking about our man that way- We will start an Eric Mob. BEWARE.

  • impsicle

    Holy hotness, batman

  • Alyssa

    Eric and I got married. We have 5 children. – yeah any time someone mentions this show I go bonkers.

    Thats GREAT. Too bad, I dont watch either of these shows. But good to know everyone is still active.

  • Maureen

    “When this boy meets wo-rld!! Boy meeeeets world! Walking down this road that we call life, is what we’re doing!!” Sorry guys, I just had to! LOL! ;)

  • Colleen

    Bring back the famous Mr. Turner hair please!

  • Rebecca

    I know his character left without explanation but it gave us probably the best line in the show. When Minkus (also written off without explanation) shows up at high school graduation and says he’s been in the part of the school no one goes to, then shouts “wait up Mr. Turner!” I laughed so much and re-watched that part about ten times.

    • Captain

      One Tree Hill ruined Minkus for me. Every time I see him on BMW I think about how much I hate Mouth.

  • JS

    Mr. Turner is the OG teacher crush! Take notes Mr. Fitz..

  • Melody

    I loved BMW, and I’m so happy to see the alums continue on successfully.

  • tracy bluth

    I get wayyy too happy anytime I hear about a BMW alum getting work!
    Although my biggest crush on the show was also Eric (I can see I’m not the only one!) I also had a crush on Mr. Turner. Even with the awful mullet.

  • Kay

    Mr. Turner has aged well! And yes, he completely kicks Ezra’s a** in the cool teacher competition.

  • Lia

    Very cool. Now put Will Friedle in something awesome! Or give him another voice acting part, I loved him in Batman Beyond.

  • satirex

    I notice no one has mentioned that other show he did where he dressed in drag to be an advice columnist.

  • Ashley

    He will play an “old friend” old being the operative word. He has to be in his 50’s, isn’t that too old for Pretty Little Liars? I don’t think he was a good choice and he isn’t even cute…..yuk!

  • Monica

    Ewww, I just read that there will be a new hot teacher in Rosewood. NOT, Mr. Turner is old, gross and definitely not hot. Why him?

  • Diane

    I can’t wait to see the show now. Super excited.
