Steve Urkel On The Size Of His Junk And Almost Getting Cast On “The Cosby Show”

“That’s why the character was named Rudy — it was intended to be a boy. That’s my tragic auditioning story. We were all packed up and ready to go to New York and my agent had told my parents that they needed to start looking for places to live out there. Next thing you know, there was one more audition and that was supposed to be a formality at the network. And a little girl comes walking in, and I’m like—even at eight years old—’Who’s she?’ And they’re like, ‘She’s auditioning for Rudy, too.’ So I’m like, ‘Oh, it’s not as much of a formality as I thought.’ That was my first time walking into a room of 30 people staring at you going, ‘O.K., make me laugh.’ They were in such a hurry to get to New York and start filming that they came out and picked the kids one by one right in front of all of us. Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Tempest Bledsoe … The rest of us all went home crying. It was amazing. Obviously I’m grateful that things worked out the way they did; I think it put a little more money in my pocket. … Let’s get something straight: all of these rejections resulted in me making a s**tload of money elsewhere.”

Vanity Fair he was thisclose to playing Rudy Huxtable on “The Cosby Show,” until Bill Cosby cast a little girl for the role instead. It doesn’t sound like the “Family Matters” geek has any hard feelings.

After the jump, Jaleel White talks about the size of his junk. Keep reading »

“Urkel” Star Jaleel White Accused Of Domestic Abuse

No, not Steve Urkel, too! “Family Matters” star Jaleel White has been accused of physically abusing his child’s mother in some very un-Urkel-like behavior. The woman claims two weeks ago, White allegedly punched her in her breasts while they were driving on a highway with their infant in the car. When they arrived home, she claims White slapped her and pushed her into the toilet so hard it broke the tank.

Urkel’s publicist issued the standard denial that all publicists for celebs accused of domestic violence can issue in their sleep: “There was absolutely no battery … no abuse … and the incident never happened. This is just a ploy in an ongoing custody battle over their young daughter to tarnish his name.” We certainly hope this report is untrue. What would Harriette and Carl think of this?
