Jaleel White

The suspenders, high-pitched voice and glasses helped create the persona of Steve Urkel on “Family Matters.” It was the breakout role which turned Jaleel White into the star of the sitcom after he was only scheduled for only a few appearances. “Did I Do That?” quickly caught on and doing the “Urkel Dance” followed not too much later. The show has lived on in re-runs and DVD, making him very rich from the royalties, but Jaleel has complained about being in Steve’s shadow. Even during his recent stint on “Dancing With The Stars,” more folks wanted to see him do the Urkel Dance than the Pasodoble.
