EW reunited with the cast of “Family Matters” back in 2917. The classic ABC sitcom ran for 215 episodes from 1989-98 and starred Jo Marie Payton, Reginald VelJohnson, Kellie Shanygne Williams, Darius McCrary, Jaleel White, Telma Hopkins, Shawn Harrison, and Bryton James.

“I was actually on my way out of the business,” recalled White about creating his memorable character. “But my [agent] sent me out for this audition because I had braces on my teeth. I knew I was going to quit acting to play on a basketball team the next year, but this role I felt like I could get.”

According to Complex, White is playing the nosy, nerdy neighbor in the upcoming Scooby Doo series, which also features guest appearances by Ricky Gervais, Wanda Sykes, Sia and Chris Paul. The regular voice cast includes Frank Weller (as Fred and Scooby), Grey Griffin (as Daphne), Kate Micucci (as Velma) and Matthew Lillard (as Shaggy), via TV Line.
