Where's Urkel?

The UrkelOne day, while I was performing an inventory of my bird flu supplies and listening to a news story about the continuing rise of gas prices, a question of the utmost importance came to me. It was so world-shattering that I stopped counting the tunafish and powdered milk; stopped worrying about ten dollar-a-gallon gas. All I wanted to know was the answer to one question and one question only...

Where's Urkel?

And by Urkel, I mean actor Jaleel White, who played the annoying neighbor Steve Urkel on the popular ABC comedy Family Matters from 1989-1998. During the show's nine seasons Urkel went from a one-joke wonder to a superstar with his own catch phrase ("Did I do that?") a doll, and his own cereal (Urkel-O's). Once the show ended, he shed his nerdy look and starred in the UPN series Grown Ups during the 1999 season.

Then, he vanished. In 2001 he graduated from UCLA Film School and has since appeared in small television roles, his last as guest-star on the UPN show Half & Half. From 2003-2005 he was a guest blogger at NBA.com. However, since then we haven't heard much from him.

So, if you know where Jaleel is, let us know. Or, Jaleel, if you would like to drop us a line we'd like to talk to you just to see how you are doing as you approach your 30th birthday.
