What's Jaleel White (AKA Steve Urkel) Up To Now?

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Keep this in mind: for all the rejections from Laura Winslow, the painful transformations into Stephan and the pants that did his "sack" no favors, it's good to be Steve Urkel. After all, he's beyond loaded.

Jaleel White, the actor who turned suspenders into universal symbols of geekdom and made the term "Did I Do That?" into perhaps the most obnoxious thing a trouble-making child could say, is proud of his run as the nerd from next door. Especially what it did for his bank account -- he's the highest paid black kid in the history of television, he told Vanity Fair in a new interview.

And he worked damn hard to earn that cash -- even if it meant some physical struggles.

"The fact is that I was maturing," he remembered of his teenage years growing up as Urkel. "I knew physically I had made certain sacrifices to keep that property alive that just couldn't be made anymore. I wasn't changing my hair; I was staying out of the gym. To be honest, I was retarding my own growth as a man in order to maintain the authenticity to what I thought that character should be."

That retardation literally included his manhood, too. Painfully and unfortunately.

"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," White said. "So, literally, the last season we loosened up his pants."

Now, having just starred in the kid-focused "Judy Moody & The NOT Bummer Summer," White is setting out to make his own film. And unlike Urkel, he may have his way with romance in this one. Or at least can direct somebody else at it. CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL STORY
