Jaleel White To Be An Inmate Alongside HOUSE

Actor Jaleel White, best known for his iconic role of Steven Urkel in the long-running 1990’s comedy series Family Matters will be playing a much different kind of character in HOUSE this fall.

According to TV Line, the former child actor will guest star in the season premiere of the FOX medical drama as a fellow inmate of Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie). The episode is entitled “Twenty Vicodin” and will pick up [SPOILER ALERT!] one year after the events of the May finale.

The now 34-year-old actor has made guest appearances in episodes of The Game, Boston Legal and Psych as well as most recently appearing in the box office film Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer.

The 8th season of House will premiere on October 3 at 9/8c on FOX.
