William Daniels: George Feeny
He may be 85 years young, but William Daniels is still pulling down roles and taking names. Since disciplining Shawn, Eric, and Cory as Mr. Feeny on Boy Meets World, William has guest-starred on several high-profile TV series including Touched by an Angel, The King of Queens, The Closer, and Boston Legal. The former St. Elsewhere and Knight Rider star also scored a few laughs as Commissioner Ebbers in the 2007 Will Ferrell ice-skating comedy Blades of Glory. Most recently, he played Dr. Thomas on Season 9 of Grey’s Anatomy.
As a testament to the man’s talent, Northwestern University gives out William Daniels Awards for the top performers, directors, and choreographers in campus theater productions.
William has been married to actress and fellow Emmy Award-winner Bonnie Bartlett since June 30, 1951. In a case of art meets life, Bonnie played William’s wife on both Boy Meets World and St. Elsewhere. The couple has two adopted sons.
