5 Reasons Why Jaleel White Will Win ‘Dancing With the Stars’

The cast of season 14 of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ was just announced, and among the usual boring parade of C-list “stars” (Melissa Gilbert?) and random athletes looking for a career boost (how soon before Donald Driver is dating Kim Kardashian?), there was one fantastic inclusion. The fact that Jaleel White, aka Steve Urkel of ‘Family Matters’ fame, has only just been included on the Vegas-y dance-athon is pretty surprising.

Whatever Happened to the Cast of ‘Groundhog Day’? [PHOTOS]

When it was released in 1993, ‘Groundhog Day’ was only a modest success at the box office. But thanks to a hilarious lead performance from Bill Murray, an original script cowritten and directed by Harold Ramis and a cast that includes familiar faces like Chris Elliott and Andie MacDowell, it has gone on to become a comedy classic.

Of course, we all know what Bill Murray has been up to lately. (Answer: whatever he darn well pleases.) But what about the actors who played Rita, Ned and all the other memorable characters?

Wikipedia Is Down — Take Comfort In These Vintage Encyclopedia Britannica Ads [VIDEOS]

Right now, that general sense of uneasiness you feel is the knowledge that you can’t head over to Wikipedia and look up what year the Peloponnesian War started or find out which episode of ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ Nancy Reagan was on.
