Ben Savage might be dating Kristin Cavallari. He’s also appearing on Bones this season as a murder suspect who splits a lottery ticket with three other suspects. These could be totally unrelated — as in, the Bones set and the bar where he apparently met the reality star are both located in LA — or Cory Matthews could be slowly crawling back to relevance!
Sure, Ben’s done guest spots on other shows before (Cold Case, Still Standing), but no major projects since Boy Meets World ended in 2000. His co-stars Rider Strong and Danielle Fishel, on the other hand, have been keeping themselves busy with (respectively) short films about Dungeons & Dragons and a hosting gig on The Dish.
The timing of his Bones episode is interesting considering that we’re not sure if he’s dating Kristin or just friends. A recent convert to Twitter, he’s been tweeting from the sets of Bones and the new Disney show Shake It Up (basically a modern Hairspray). The two shows are actually a good mix for him to be looking into: A darker drama for fans of his who grew up with Boy Meets World, but also acknowledging his Disney/ABC roots since Disney’s current viewers still know who Cory Matthews is.
