Jonathan Jackson on Boy Meets World

Every once in a while I come across some information that shakes me to my core. Here’s what it was recently… I watch the show Nashville, 1. Because I’m a good Nashvillian and 2. it’s a good show. I learned early in season 1 that Deacon Claybourne is played by Charles Esten. Might not ring a bell yet, but he was actually a regular on Whose Line Is It Anyway? back in the late 90s/early 2000s. It’s very strange to see clips of him performing as an improv comedian compared to his serious role as Deacon on Nashville. He’s great at both!

But I just put 2 and 2 together on another actor from Nashville, Jonathan Jackson. He plays Avery Barkley on the show. He’s been in soap opera’s and starred in few movies but a picture I saw of him online recently struck a chord. It reminded me of this girlfriend stealer from the best show ever, Boy Meets World!!!!

It wasn’t the kiss that Topanga couldn’t forgive, it was that Cory lied about it. Oh man, that show will forever be awesome. And Mr. Feeny being the voice of Kitt in Knight Rider is just simply BA, am I right?

Anyway, that’s how the show Nashville is connected to David Hasselhoff, I guess.

Since 2005, I've called Nashville home. I'm the leader of the pack, which includes an 11-year-old beagle and a 9-year-old blue heeler mix. My days include writing, video editing, dog boarding, and other fun activities. Thanks for checking out my blog, I hope you enjoy it!

  1. WHAAA? Mind. blown. I’ve been trying to place him for 2 seasons of Nashville. Thank you. My life is now complete.

    1. Haha you’re quite welcome! It didn’t dawn on me till I saw the picture of him on the internet, and then it clicked. I still wasn’t sure till I looked up his wikipedia page and remembered how he STOLE Topanga, if only for a date or two.
