8. Urkel was almost Rudy

Initially the character of Rudy was written as a boy and Jaleel White was the strong frontrunner for getting the role. But then Keshia Knight-Pulliam came in and charmed everyone and the character was switched to be a girl. Jaleel of course went on to play Urkel in Family Matters, so he did okay for himself.
