Will Friedle has already met the world, but now he's going to meet the entire Galaxy.
Marvel Animation has officially cast the Boy Meets World actor as Star-Lord for their upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Series. Though known by most for his turn as Eric Matthews on the classic ABC television show, Friedle also has an extensive voice casting resume.
Most comic book fans will recognize Friedle's voice as Batman Beyond's. Friedle has voiced Batman Beyond and alter ego Terry McGinnis for every show and feature that the character has appeared in. Friedle's other comic book work includes Teen Titans (Fang), The Batman (Gear Head), Batman: The Brave and The Bold (Blue Beetle/Jaime Reyes), and Ultimate Spider-Man (Deadpool).
Star-Lord, also known as Peter Quill, is the half-human, half-Spartax leader of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy team. Originally a thief and con-artist, Star-Lord eventually became a noble hero after joining the Guardians. Actor Chris Pratt currently portrays him the Marvel Studios film franchise.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Series is expected to premiere on Disney XD in 2015.
