Fans of the hit show Family Matters have reason to rejoice. Or at least fans of Steve Urkel. That’s right, we’ll once again be getting to see our favorite nerd on our TV screens again. Although, this time he’ll probably be looking a little more like Stefan. Either way, Jaleel White, who originated the role of both, will be dancing his way into our hearts again as a contestant on none other than this season’s Dancing With The Stars [via Just Jared]
Jaleel joins the super diverse cast for the series’ 14th season and will be partnered with professional dancer Kym Johnson. Prior to this casting, Jaleel as Urkel introduced us to a lot of things. Those awesome suspenders and cardigans, that iconic phrase “Did I do that?!” and some pretty entertaining dance moves. All of the above are why I’m personally super excited to see him once again strut his stuff on stage. I can only hope that that infamous accordion will make an appearance too.
Also in this season’s cast: Gavin DeGraw, Donald Driver, Melissa Gilbert, Roshan Fegan, Maria Menounos, Katherine Jenkins, Gladys Knight, William Levy, Martina Navratilova, Jack Wagner, and last but not least, Sherri Shepherd.
So, are you guys as excited as I am for Urkel? Who else are you excited about in the cast?
