Jaleel White (Urkel!) Books 'House' Gig

by Chris Harnick, posted Aug 30th 2011 2:30PM
Jaleel WhiteDr. House is going to have one very familiar-looking prison mate: None other than 'Family Matters' star Jaleel White. Yes, Steve Urkel.

We can only hope White utters "Did I do that?" at least once.

According to TVLine, White will guest star in the Mon., Oct. 3 'House' season premiere (9PM ET on Fox). Picking up one year later, House is in prison after driving his car into Cuddy's house.

Besides 'House,' the 'Family Matters' veteran has stayed busy popping up on a variety of shows including 'Are We There Yet?' and 'Psych.'

White is also a busy voice actor, recently providing his voice to an episode of 'The Problem Solverz.'

White's casting comes hot on the heels of a fellow TGIF alumnus heading back to primetime. 'Boy Meets World' star Ben Savage will guest star on an episode of 'Bones.' 'Step by Step' star Christine Lakin, please stand by your phone!

He and his family do not get enough credit for managing the money. As he's said many times, the royalty checks and the interest on what he made provides a great lifestyle. In this day and age where these stars throw away so much, it is refreshing to see how Steve (I mean Jaleel) has done well.

Hope we see and hear more of you.

What about a Steve Urkel pilot..30 years later?.

He was also in a SyFy movie which aired a couple of weeks ago! Just a tad too much 'Urkel", but nice he's getting work.

He was the best voice of Sonic the Hedgehog in my opinion. And as for whatever SYFY movie he was in, just remember that all shows and movies on that channel are never meant to be taken seriously. I bet even the actors know that.

I saw this guy on a SYFY thing about and giant Shark thing. It was awful but, far funnier than his old Erkel show. However, I don't think this shark thing was supposed to be so funny. The acting was laughable. This Urkel freak most have the best agent in Hollywood. Why does this guy get work in films?
