Rider Strong Returns To Television In The Upcoming TV Show Hooker Lawyer

I haven’t slept since Boy Meets World went off the air in 2000. Sure, I catch a cat nap here and there. But the fact that Rider Strong left the show and never really made it kept me up at nights. Shawn Hunter went through so much on the show to just disappear into oblivion — and even worse than oblivion, movies like Cabin Fever 2.

However that neverending insomnia ends today, because Rider Strong is back and better than ever! He’s starring in the video Hooker Lawyer, a spoof of the popular USA Network shows that all revolve around successful suit-wearing professionals, like doctors, mediators, detectives and yes, lawyers.

Rider  plays a lawyer who represents hookers. Naturally. This is exactly the kind of job I always pictured Shawn Hunter getting. I’m sure it was Mr. Turner himself who gave him the hook-up. Because I always felt like Mr. Turner probably knew a lot of hookers, hookers who got into legal trouble. That’s just the kind of vibe he always gave off to me. In the same way Topanga gave off a martyr vibe by giving up Yale for Pembrooke, the town’s not-community-but-probably-community college.

In this series teaser for Hooker Lawyer, he  gives an inspirational speech about the hooker that lives inside all of us. It’s a tearjerker. Especially if you are a hooker lawyer. It goes without saying that I wish this was an actual show.

      I was just reminiscing over Boy Meets World yesterday!

        My husband and I recently started to re-watch Boy Meets World on DVD at night before bed. We owned the first 3 seasons and since they finally released the rest we were able to complete the collection.

        I’d forgotten how good the show was and it’s awesome to see Rider doing something new. Now if only Will Friedle would return his beautiful face to my tv screen…

      Goddamn your headline. I actually thought he was returning to television. Don’t do that to me! Hooker Lawyer sounds like a brilliant idea.

      I had an autographed picture of Rider Strong on my mirror until I moved. I adored him – I couldn’t get into Eric because he was too dumb. Cory seemed too goody-goody. Shawn was cute, smart, and a troubled bad-boy. Man….

        Sorry! I’m just hoping that USA gets so excited by my headline that they actually pick it up.

      Aw damn! I thought this was real too. :( Obviously the endless nights awake with a teething toddler are affecting my ability to sense sarcasm.
