Jaleel White: Family Matters Star

June 10, 2010

You may not remember his name when you first hear it but I bet if I said the name Steve Urkel you would know exactly who Family Matters star Jaleel White is, am I right? I will say this ladies Jaleel is certainly no longer the geek he played on TV, in fact he is a bona fide hottie! Catch up with what Jaleel has been doing since the sitcom ended plus learn about his new series which of course includes pictures and a video too.

He was a part of a show that was litterally a phenomenon and played a character that was the ultimate geek but Jaleel White from Family Matters is all grown up and moving on. Oh yes the man who played the unforgetable Steve Urkel is not only smoking hot but he is putting the past, and Steve, behind him with his new web series Fake It Til You Make It. There are no more suspenders and pants up to his naval for this guy as he is not only the star of the new web series but he is also the writer and producer too. In Fake It Til You Make It Jaleel plays a former child star turned celebrity image consultant. White has described the show as what it is really like to live out in LA and he calls it the other side of Entourage. The show can currently be seen on Hulu. I have to say I watched a clip and it is really good so I highly recommend checking it out.

The 33 year old Pasadena, California born Jaleel was bit by the acting bug at a young age. He actually got his start doing Kellogg’s commercials when he was only three years old, thanks to a very persistent preschool teacher who convinced his parents that their adorable son should be on the audition circuit. He appeared on television shows like The Jeffersons, Good Morning Miss Bliss and Charlie and Company to name a few before he landed his big break on the 90’s sitcom that shot him to fame, which he landed at the age of 12.

Since his sitcom days White has been keeping himself busy. He went on to star in the short live UPN show Grown Ups, he then appeared on The Game, Boston Legal and Psych. Jaleel has also done voice over work for a number of animated films, television shows and video games. Although he seems to have had the most success on the small screen White has also appeared on the big screen with small roles in films like Dreamgirls and Big Fat Liar.

Former Family Matters star Jaleel White said good bye to Urkel a long time ago. Now the hottie is heating things up in the new web series Fake It Til You Make It and you can see a clip from it in the below video, enjoy!
