jaleel white doesnt miss his steve urkel days

Come on, Jaleel! You starred in Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus last year! We find it hard to believe that you're not missing those Family Matters days!

During a recent interview, the new host of SyFy's Total Blackout Jaleel White opened up about his Steve Urkel days, and had the following to say about them:

"I don't [miss playing Urkel]. I really don't. I'm not trying to get away from it or anything like that, but I don't miss the role at all — really. I just want to work. I want my daughter to say, 'I know what Daddy does,' not 'what Daddy did."

And more from Jaleel on his reinvigorated passion for acting:

"I'm very versatile, but somehow I didn't earn the tag of being called a versatile actor. I'm still chasing that one Vanity Fair tag that says, 'This guy's a versatile actor.' I accept it. It's fine. But for me, it's like what do I have to do to get that [acknowledgement]?"

"I just want people to know I haven't gone anywhere. The passion was gone for awhile, but I've got my mojo back."

We hear ya, Jaleel, but we're not 100% sure if hosting a game show on SyFy is going to show the world that you're a versatile actor! Just sayin'!

Even though he may not miss them, do U miss Jaleel White's Steve Urkel days?

    I do NOT miss Steve Urkel! Would be cool to see Jaleel White do more and other roles though. I hope he will have a long and interesting career.

    I think Jaleel White is/was an actor giving it all for the paycheck. Was refering to the Steve Urkel character. Often actors are given a neat role and they work some that characters qualities into their own personnas-( but) I'd be willing to bet Jaleel is ready for Act II.

    Stupidest character ever on TV, better suited as a cartoon for 5 year olds, if that. Stay away and keep that idiotic character off the small screen, we've got enough on there already.
