What These Family Matters Actors Look Like Today
100 Comments


If you were a kid in the ’90s, there’s no
chance you missed the TV juggernaut that was Family Matters. So just how different does that pesky Steve
Urkel look after the show ran from 1989 to 1998? Odds are, you might not even recognize him. Here’s what these Family Matters actors who
look like today. Jaleel White The actor who played the unbearable, scene-stealing
Steve Urkel has come a long way since Family Matters went off the air. Since then, Jaleel White graduated from UCLA
with a degree in film and television, and in the late 2000s, his acting career slowly
began to regain momentum when he landed guest spots on shows like House, NCIS, and Boston
Legal. Oh, and Sonic Underground…as three different,
horrible hedgehogs. “Gosh!” “What’s wrong?” “Beware, Purple Sand is the home of the deadly
sand snake!” “No biggie. We’ll just stay in the van.” In 2010, White also wrote produced, and starred
in an online series called Fake It ‘Til You Make It, poking fun at his obnoxious early
TV years. White also appeared on Dancing with the Stars
in 2012, finishing in seventh place. During his run on the show, People reports
that he got into a fight with his dancing partner, Kym Johnson, after he allegedly stepped
on her foot in rehearsals. “Did I do that?” Kellie Williams Steve Urkel’s unrequited love interest Laura
Winslow, played by Kellie Williams, has acted sporadically over the years, most famously
on ABC’s What About Joan. She also landed guest spots on Girlfriends
and Eve. Her most recent acting credit was in 2011,
so she’s more or less avoiding the spotlight to focus on family. According to the actress’ official website
and her frequent tweets about her kids, Williams’ top priority is being a “devoted wife and
mother.” She and husband Hannibal Jackson have two
children: Hannah Belle and John Ervin Jackson. Williams also dabbles in charitable events
in and around the Washington, D.C. area, where she resides. Darius McCrary Since playing Eddie Winslow, Darius McCrary
has kept busy on the small screen. In recent years, he’s appeared on hit shows
like the Charlie Sheen comedy Anger Management. From 2009 to 2011, he also had a recurring
role on the daytime soap The Young and the Restless. Most unforgettably, he also provided the voice
for Jazz in the 2007 Transformers movie. “This looks like a cool place to kick it.” McCrary’s personal life, however, has been
a bit messy. According to TMZ, the actor is on his third
marriage, this time to former Harlem Globetrotter Tammy Brawner. His second marriage, to video vixen Karrine
Steffans, has been the source of major drama over the last few years. In 2010, he was accused of beating Steffans
with a belt in front of the couple’s son. In 2015, McCrary was jailed for falling behind
on child support payments. And in 2016, he was really, really excited
to be a guest judge at the 27th Annual Ms. Full-Figured USA Pageant. “And I’m gonna tell you something. I have to be quite honest. I love my woman like two cheeseburgers away
from, you know, from being like super sexy. Jo Marie Payton “Well, what was Harriette doing in there that
whole time?” “No Harriette used to run the elevator, but
now she’s got her own show. It’s called Family Matters. Watch this!” (theme music playing) If it weren’t for Jo Marie Payton’s role as
elevator operator Harriette Winslow on Perfect Strangers, Family Matters may never have happened. Her character was so popular that she was
the reason for the spinoff… but she was also the first actor to leave Family Matters
in the middle of the show’s final season, as she was feeling creatively stifled. Immediately after leaving, Payton released
a jazz album called Southern Shadows, and quickly moved on to recurring roles in Moesha
and Will & Grace. Payton has mostly kept to the small screen,
but you’ll probably also recognize her as the voice of Suga Mama on the long-running
The Proud Family… “Pup? You stink! Smell like you’ve been living in a garbage
can!” …and most recently, in a regular role on
BounceTV’s Mann and Wife. Reginald VelJohnson Though he’s probably best known as police
officer and patriarch Carl Winslow, Reginald VelJohnson’s career has done better than most
of his co-stars. He predated Family Matters with a notable
role in the classic Die Hard series — as a cop — and an appearance in Ghostbusters…
as a cop. “Okay, Ghostbusters. The mayor wants to see you guys. The whole island’s going crazy. Let’s go.” After the cancellation of Family Matters,
VelJohnson showed up in guest spots just about everywhere, including CSI, Crossing Jordan,
Will & Grace, and That’s So Raven. Even more recently, he’s appeared in It’s
Always Sunny and Girl Meets World. According to a 2016 interview with The Huffington
Post, VelJohnson still regularly talks with his old TV family, and even co-starred with
his former TV-wife, Jo Marie Payton, in the TV movie, The Flight Before Christmas. While filming, the pair even discussed the
possibility of a Family Matters reunion. “Those horrible catchphrases…over and over
and over again… ‘Did I do that?’ ‘Did I do that?'” Thanks for watching! Subscribe to our YouTube channel to watch
