Cory Matthews gives Jimmy Fallon’s perm a thumbs up!
Topanga’s honey-colored locks may have been the envy of every ’90s teen girl, but another “Boy Meets World” cast member’s hair created just as much buzz. Cory Matthews’ naturally curly top was so iconic, ABC fashioned entire story lines around his ’do in several “BMW” episodes, and, recently, new dad Jimmy Fallon brought Cory’s classic coif back for the third annual “Late Night Perm Week.” The results will make your soul glow.
Every night last week, the quirky talk show host convinced several studio audience members to chemically treat their straight manes, because “nothing seems sacred anymore” — except, of course, THE PERM! In the clip below, Derek Smith volunteers to switch up his style, and hopes to start a trend. “I will be the first person in my family to get a perm, but I think many will follow,” he says. When Derek steps out for the big reveal, even Jimmy’s captivated by the boingy nature of his new look: “I’ve never seen anything quite like it — it’s a little ’Boy Meets World.'” In a related story: Derek is currently being eyed by “Girl Meets World” production for the role of Ben Savage’s stunt double.
