Urkel Is Back!

| Filed under: TV News

Okay, not really.

The guy who played Urkel as a kid has a new show, which is less exciting we know, but good news for him since we can't think of a single thing he's ever done other than Family Matters.

Jaleel White is writing, producing and starring in a new web series called Fake It Til You Make It. The show follows Jaleel as he plays a former child star (streeeeeeeeeetch) who becomes a celebrity image consultant as an adult. Jaleel calls the series " the other side of Entourage" with a comedic sensibility similar to other "low-budget" Hollywood shows, like Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Kind of a lazy comeback, but hey, if no one in Hollywood will hire you, you've got to hire yourself!

Think U might watch Urkel's new show?

    Ummm he has made an appearance in Dreamgirls. Granted it was a few years ago, but he has done other things since family matters.

    Perez, this is funny, I think you get mad at even the smallest celebrity because no one on the red carpet invites you, have you ever sat back and thought why they don't? you talk shit before you know what will happen to this show, for all you know this may hit big! This is not a stretched, it's a jab a celeb reality shows, it's him playing himself with a over zealous character, you think you know what your doing… where is your spot on American Idol? you'll never be on TV, this is why you talk so much about those that are… sad sad, icky icky, homo.

    You never cease to amaze me HOMO. "former child star (streeeeeeeeeetch)" A stretch ? REALLY? Family matters aired over 200 episodes. his Character was Family Matters. You could not go into any store in the 80s without seeing his mug in the toy section

    What else has Jaleel done? Don't tell me you missed the classic TV movie Camp Cucamonga? Its a must watch– it stars Jennifer Aniston, Candace Cameron, Chad Allen, Danica McKeller, and a few of other '80/'90 TV stars.

    I was pleasantly surprised this is good enough to be on an HBO or something - it was really funny!

    Actually, he's been doing the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog for years. My son is obsessed w/ Sonic and Jaleel White is the name listed for Sonic's voice on every episode. I heard an episode one day and thought "That sounds like Urkel." Sure enough, it was ;)

    He was also in Big Fat Liar as either himself driving a limo or a chauffeur. He's done other things, but I won't be seeing this. It is not on the same page as Curb.
