I would do anything for this collection!

Recognise that little fella? Yep, Carlton Banks, The Fresh Prince's dancin' cuzz. Alfonso Ribeiro to his mom, as a youngster he also starred opposite Michael Jackson in a Pepsi ad before landing the role in The Fresh Prince. Later in his career he directed a few TV shows and went on to become a successful reality TV star, winning the US show Celebrity Duets. Looking at the early vids there is no doubt the kid had talent, you can't help but think that landing the role of Will's dorky cousin was a bit of a poisoned chalice, he was never really able to shake the image. Like Saved by the Bell's Screech before him, he will never have his own identity.
