Uh, where would we be without Steve Urkel? We wouldn’t know the “Urkel dance,” be able to say, “Did I do that!?” and wouldn’t think suspenders were maaaad cool. But the whole show that was “Family Matters” was pretty landmark, and who doesn’t miss the days of scripted shows where the black family was shown in a positive light (and they tackled tough issues!)? Time to see what this cast is up to nowadays. Be ready to click…

Reginald VelJohnson

As Carl Winlsow, the head of the Winslow family (aka, the “Big Kahuna”), he was like many fathers on television: a little uptight, but very funny. When he wasn’t spending time letting Steve Urkel get him enraged, he was working for the Chicago Police department, going up the ranks from officer to sergeant, to lieutenant, and finally captain. In real life, after “Family Matters,” VelJohnson guest starred on “The Parkers, “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and most recently, he guest starred on the popular CBS show “Mike & Molly.” He did have a role on the CW show “Hart of Dixie” before it was canceled, and he has been in the movies Like Mike and Couples Retreat.
