Jaleel White

Jaleel White, The actor Jaleel White prompted one of the biggest cheers when the roll-call for this year’s Dancing With The Stars was announced. And the Hollywood Reporter caught up with the former Family Matters star – along with his professional dance partner Kym Johnson – to find out what made him finally give in to the repeated requests to take part in the show.

Jaleel explained that “The offer ran through my mom this time instead of me,” before adding that Dancing With The Stars is his mother’s favorite show. He’s not just there to keep his mother happy though; White told reporters “I am here to win.” Jaleel White’s geeky character in Family Matters, Steve Urkel, inspired a comedy dance craze, The Urkel Dance, in the early 1990s and he admitted that he’d quite like to figure out a way of bringing in a homage to the hip-thrusting moves that have now become a YouTube phenomenon: “I was talking to [Kym] about some type of homage. I don’t know what it would be, I really don’t,” he told Thr. “If I could find something in there that would be tongue and cheek, I’d do it,” he told Hollywood Reporter.
