Yes, he did that.
Actor Jaleel White, famous for his cultural touchstone role as Steve Urkel in Family Matters, is entering the cannabis industry. Through a partnership with 710 Labs, White’s new cannabis line called ItsPurpl features variants of the popular cannabis strain Purple Urkle. It is set to launch on April 20, 2021. The brand will be on dispensary shelves in California, to start, potentially growing to more marketplaces in the
“To smoke the end result from such a quality pod has been surreal,” says White. “I feel a little bit like Willy Wonka, the flavor came out so similar to grape candy.” The ItsPurple branding shows an ombre-purple Steve Urkel character on sleek black packaging. A limited-edition series of merchandise that includes a waffle maker, will also be available. People can sign up for product alerts through the ItsPurple website.
“Jaleel is a big fan of the Noodle Doinks and the Live Resin Pods,” says Melshenker. “The Noodle Doinks will come in 3 pheno’s of Purple Urkle and of Stefan, and the Live Resin Pods will come in Mendo Purps x Zkittlez to start, which by the way, is probably my favorite pod flavor to date. It’s a straight candy flavor with a grape Big League Chew vibe on the exhale.”

Although many Shameless fans wished Emmy Rossum's Fiona had popped by during the series finale, showrunner John Wells explained why the character's return became "impossible."
During a interview with The Hollywood Reporter published Monday, April 12, showrunner John Wells explained that Emmy, had hoped to return for the April 11 finale. But the logistics just didn't work out amid the pandemic, given that the 34-year-old star lives in New York City, while Shameless filmed in Los Angeles.
"We were trying to get Emmy—and Emmy wanted to come back," John said. "We caught it at the wrong moment. We wanted her to return and had some storylines about her coming back, and she wanted to do it. Based on what was going on with the pandemic, when we were planning it—there have been so many surges, I can't remember which one it was—but the quarantines went back into effect between New York and Los Angeles, and it was impossible to figure out how to get her back. That was biggest disappointment: not being able to make that work out because we all wanted it to happen. A very minor but sad result of everything that's happened in the pandemic."
John went on to say that the writing team "had about 20" potential story lines in mind for the eldest child of Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy). As fans know, the embattled patriarch died alone in the series finale after suffering from COVID-19 and the effects of alcoholic dementia.
John Wick star Keanu Reeves has been spotted in Germany, specifically at Berlin's Potsdam Babelsberg studios, with the actor looking happy and ready to begin filming on John Wick 4. While Reeves recently shaved off his signature John Wick-locks for another sequel in a hugely popular franchise, The Matrix 4, his beard looks to be growing back nicely, and will no doubt once again be blood-spattered once Wick continues his endless quest for vengeance.
Development on the fourth entry in the action thriller franchise officially began some time ago, following the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum back in 2019. But not even John Wick can stop the ongoing global situation, and thus delays and production push backs occurred. With things slowly going back to normal-ish for the entertainment industry, Keanu Reeves and the rest of the cast and crew can now return to the world of Wick.
