After nine years on the set of Family Matters, Reginald VelJohnson didnâ€™t take any time off to catch a breath. Just months after wrapping the ABC-family series, TVâ€™s favorite dad guest starred on an episode of Diagnosis Murder, the old medical murder drama on CBS. Between 1999 and 2009, VelJohnson appeared on 14 different television shows including Monk, Crossing Jordan, The Hughleyâ€™s, Will & Grace and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
In 2010, the Carl Winslow personality followed in the footsteps of his other Darius McCrary and Bryton James, and accepted roles on two soap operas: The Bold and the Beautiful (2010) and General Hospital (2012). But Reginaldâ€™s daytime TV spots were short-lived as he took on the role of Brother Heywood on the CBS sitcom, Mike & Molly, in 2011. VelJohnson now stars on the CWâ€™s Hart of Dixie alongside Rachel Bilson, best known as Summer from The O.C.
