So, who did Brian Peck play in 'Boy Meets World'?

It was 1999 when Brian, know from his '80s film The Return of the Living Dead, guest starred on Boy Meets World. He played cowboy #2 and Ookie, per IMDb.

However short his stint on the beloved series, Brian — who was later convicted of sexually abusing a child actor from Nickelodeon, per Page Six — didn't conduct himself appropriately on set, according to Rider and Will.

While appearing on the podcast Pod Meets World the show alums discussed what happened when Brian visited their set.

As Will recounted about the actor, who was over 20 years his senior, "This was the type of thing where the person he presented was this great, funny guy who was really good at his job, and you wanted to hang out with … I saw him every day, hung out with him every day, talked to him every day."

Will later defended Brian in court during his sexual abuse trial, a decision he now regrets given that as an adult, he understands what the guest star was really doing.

As Will said, “Getting taken in by somebody who’s a good actor and a manipulator, I could chalk that up to being young and that’s the way it is. It’s awful. I’m going to use that for my growth as a human being, but when there’s an actual victim involved and now I’m on the abuser’s side, that’s the thing I can’t get over and haven’t been able to get over.”

Ookie appeared on 'The Honeymooners' episode of 'Boy Meets World.'

Brian played Ookie in the episode where Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) don't know Eric, played by Will, followed the couple to their tropic honeymoon.

Fans will recall that Cory and Topanga consider staying in the exotic locale, but then miss their family and friends, and eventually nix that plan.

Ookie appears to be some sort of Tahitian local who, cringe, doesn't wear much more than a grass skirt and seashell necklaces in the episode.

Meanwhile, following his Boy Meets World guest appearance, Brian went on to do work on other shows that included child cast members, including All That, starring Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson, and The Suite Life With Zack & Cody, which starred Cole and Dylan Sprouse, as well as Ashley Tisdale.
