Castle Casts Jaleel White as a Sketch Show Comic... With Killer Material?

Jaleel White Castle Cast

Did he do that?

TVLine has learned exclusively that Jaleel White has been cast on the upcoming Castle episode, “Dead From New York.”

TV’s erstwhile Urkel will play Mickey Franks, the larger-than-life star of a Saturday Night Live-like sketch series who has a tendency toward outrageous — and possibly homicidal — behavior.

In recent years, White has guested on series such as Hawaii Five-0, CSI, Drop Dead Diva and Psych, as well as competed on Dancing With the Stars.

ABC’s Castle resumes Season 7 on April 20 with Episode 20; White appears in Episode 22.

      I remember that moment back in Season Two where the bomber blew up Kate Beckett’s apartment and all of a sudden, she survived after taking a shower. Can imagine seeing Stana Katic and that HOT body of hers.

    Can’t wait to watch him! He was great on Psych~

  6. Just one thing says:

    I sincerely hope they cast Carlton if they are renewed, and that’s not a joke.

  7. Bella says:

    Can’t wait. I was a huge fan of Steve Urkel back in the day.

  8. Know the show says:

    He was a guest on there once already. He was viewing a loft with his girlfriend and they found a dead body
