Girl Meets World Enlists Family Matters Fave for Arresting Season 3 Guest Spot

Carl Winslow is back on the force. (Well, sort of.)

Reginald VelJohnson, who played the Family Matters patriarch from 1989 to 1998, will appear in an episode of Girl Meets World‘s upcoming third season, E! Online reports.

Though he won’t be acting as his Family Matters character, VelJohnson will once again be playing a cop — a position for which he’s more than qualified, having practically made a career out of portraying an officer of the law. (Just watch Die HardDie Hard 2 and Ghostbusters for proof of that.)

The other fun connection here, of course, is that Family Matters and Boy Meets World were both part of ABC’s holy union of shows known as TGIF until the former was shipped over to CBS in 1997.

VelJohnson recently reunited with his Family Matters co-star Jo Marie Payton — who played Carl’s wife Harriett prior to the show’s migration — in the Lifetime movie The Flight Before Christmas.
