Jaleel White As Steve Urkel On Family Matters
Jaleel White was lucky to land the role of Steve Urkel on Family Matters, a role he played for nine seasons and 215 episodes. As the show continued to develop, so did White. Eventually, Urkel developed some serious muscles and the character of Stephan was added in an attempt to allow White to show off a different side to his acting. Jaleel might be one of the most typecasted TV actors of all time but he also managed to create a quirky character for years and he hid really well behind Urkel’s suspenders and glasses while taking on the goofy sitcom role.
