Fred Savage is Back!

Remember that boy-next-door in television shows such as "Wonder Years" or "Boy Meets World"? Well he has decided to come back to acting. But don't worry during his time away from the screen he was always closer than we were. Fred Savage has been directing television shows such as "Drake and Josh", "Zoey 101" and "Phil of The Future."

He will be on the upcoming television, "Crumbs," which is about a family that's falling apart. Fred Savage will be playing "Mitch" the son that admits to being gay. The show isn't just about a gay child though, it's about the secrets that lie within a family and how they get through all the lies once they are told.

I have never forgotten him in the Wonder Years, I still have some very fond memories of watching that show with my parents when I was growing up. It was like a ritual and we never missed an episode. "Boy Meets World" was another favorite of mine as a teen, I could always relate to the characters and loved the two (Corey & Topanga) together. I do hope he stays with acting this time around, however I must say the two television shows he's been directing are quite entertaining. My children watch both of them whenever possible and yes I too watch them.
