Yeah, that’s right. I called Steve Urkel handsome.
Jaleel White played Steve Urkel on the hit show Family Matters. He’s in the news because Family Matters season one is coming out on DVD. Also, White has a new show that is going to premiere on HULU entitled Fake It Tilâ€™ You Make It.
He had an interview with Entertainment Weekly where he talked about life after Family Matters. While he jokes about his looks (“howâ€™d you feel looking back at the seventh grade?”), he seems very humbled by the opportunity. “I always tell people when they talk about the show [that] it was one of my greatest accomplishments” (EW).
Another part of the interview went as follows:
EW: Is there anything else youâ€™d like fans to know?
JW: Iâ€™m happy to be known for all the right reasons. When I click on the Internet, you can be known for some crazy stuff here. For all the people who think, â€œI wonder what that guy thinks his legacy is,â€ Iâ€™ll always take a legacy of giving people laughs. Thatâ€™s what I do socially, thatâ€™s what I do intimately, thatâ€™s what I do professionally. As long as I can
give you some laughs, whether itâ€™s through what I have done or what Iâ€™m currently doing, I feel like Iâ€™ve given something good to the world.”
