Oh boy who knew! Jaleel White sat down recently with a major magazine to talk about the long running show “Family Matters”.
White says he made a lot of money on the show but playing Steve Urkel was a huge stretch in the waning years. Some of the sacrifices included not going to the gym as often as he wanted to bulk up on those young muscles because it would make Urkel look like the black Incredible Hulk.
Another issue was the appearance of his pants. You know he had to wear them tight azzz heck, well White says “I was getting network notes on the bulge of my sack! I wore my pants so freaking tight, and it was like, after awhile, we got a problem there. So, literally, the last season we loosened up his pants.”
