Matthew Lawrence taking on big-screen thrillers this year

To the rest of the world he may be one of the Lawrence brothers (sibling of Joey Lawrence) and star of the sitcom "Boy Meets World." To us, though, he's the original Danny Carrington of "Dynasty." It was his very first role, back in 1984-85. Now, he's got three projects going for this year, including a Halloween thriller.

In "Trick or Treat," he plays Brock Anderson. The plotline from the IMDb: "On Halloween, a teenage boy who is grounded and forced to babysit his brother and sister discovers, along with his siblings, that his house is haunted." The film also features Robert Carradine and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

In "Hunter's Moon," more of a sci-fi thriller, Lawrence is Lance. "'Hunter's Moon' tells the story of four young couples drawn to the remote dunes for off-roading in their extreme machines. But the outing turns into a night of terror when they are attacked by the Catcher, a skilled and brutal hunter of human specimens for alien science," the IMDb says.

And in the thriller "Mary Worth," Lawrence is on board to play Garret. Keri Lynn Pratt plays the title role in this horror flick about the "Bloody Mary" / dark bathroom / mirror legend (if you don't know, don't ask!).

Besides "Boy Meets World," Lawrence has kept up the acting gigs over the years, on stuff like "CSI: Miami" and "Boston Public." He even played the younger version of his brother Joey on Joey's sitcom "Blossom."
