Published August 12, 2011

The actor best known for his role as Steve Urkel in Family Matters is going to play Cee Lo in the singer’s new video “Cry Baby.”


According to ABC, Jaleel White, 34, who is also now a father of a two-year-old daughter, is replacing The Voice judge as the main man in his video, with opening credits reading, "Jaleel White as Cee Lo Green."


While this creative seems a little odd, considering how much White and Cee Lo, 37, resemble each other, Cee Lo tweeted, "I had no idea they shot a video for cry baby I hear its cool though.”


In a recent interview with Nightline, White says of his Urkel character, "Those characters, those people that lived inside of me...I just kind of keep them in a little box now."


For White's part, he's been keeping busy as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog and can be seen in this summer's child's adventure Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer.
