Jaleel White

Jaleel White is in the house!

OK, make that on House. Well, he will be, at least.

That's right. The guy who gave us the greatest geek of the '90s—Steve Urkel—is set to appear on the Fox TV drama.

The former Family Matters actor will guest star on the Oct. 3 season premiere of the show, according to TV Line.

So, just what will White be playing?

It looks like he'll be trading in his suspenders for a jumpsuit to portray an inmate alongside Hugh Laurie's titular character, who, viewers will recall, wound up in the clink after deciding to run his car into Lisa Cuddy's, er, house at the end of last season. The episode reportedly picks up a year after the fact.

It's been quite a good month for the onetime child star. After all, it was just a couple of weeks ago that we got to witness White channel CeeLo Green in the singer's newest music video.

Actually, make that quite a good month for Urkel fans!
