Jaleel White celebrated the "biggest" co-star he has ever had; former WWE wrestler, Paul Wight, famously known as "The Big Show," in an Instagram post. The post was in honor of their starring roles in a new Netflix series, "The Big Show Show."


Jaleel White is remembered for his starring role in the 1990s sitcom, "Family Matters," where his character, Steve Urkel was a fan favorite. The 43-year-old actor has since moved on to even greater heights.

The actor is starring in a new Netflix series, "The Big Show Show," along with Paul Wight, the WWE wrestler, who coincidentally shares similar last name with Jaleel.

Despite their wide size difference, both men share chemistry while acting, a fact made known by Jaleel in an Instagram post, where he celebrated "The Big Show."

In the post, Jaleel shared a few pictures from the show, which kicked off on April 6, as well as a photo of some cookies themed after the show. In the caption to the post, Jaleel wrote:

"Shout out to the BIGGEST COstar I've ever had@wwethebigshow Our shared passion for the perfect chicken sammich as an actor kind of chemistry that doesn’t happen everyday."


Jaleel also used hashtags to depict the new Netflix series as part of the top ten watched new programs on the streaming service, and urge people to stay at home and safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In conclusion, he jokingly told Paul Wight that he was still waiting for his Netflix cookies, asking why he couldn’t have a dry mouth and a sugar rush in honor of the wrestler's show.

The series tells the story of Big Show, a retired wrestler raising his daughters.


"The Big Show" sees Paul Wight, a former Wichita State University basketball player, unite with a 17-year-old Wichita-born actress, Reylynn Caster.

Caster moved to Los Angeles four years ago to pursue a career in acting. She stars on the show as Lola, the eldest of Big Show's three daughters. The series tells the story of Big Show, a retired wrestler raising his daughters.


The 17-year-old has starred in several television shows, including "Speechless," "Walk the Prank," and "Just Add Magic," by ABC, Disney Channel, and Amazon, respectively.

At only 17 years of age, it is quite a remarkable feat for Reylynn Caster, and if she needs any help handling stardom as a youth, she has no better person to talk to than Jaleel White.

Many fans still adore Jaleel for his portrayal of Steve Urkel in "Family Matters," and in a chat with "Fox News," he said that he enjoyed playing the character and that his mother's guidance helped him to stay grounded even as a child star.
