Take A Look At 'The Steve Harvey Show' Cast 15 Years After The Show Ended

- Page 1

Decades before Steve Harvey pit families against each other on Family Feud and committed blunders on the Miss Universe stage, he was Steve Hightower, the lead character in the 90s sitcom The Steve Harvey Show.

Mediacom TV & Movies

On the show, Harvey portrays a 1970s funk legend-turned-music teacher and vice-principal at Booker T. Washington High School in Chicago. Along with his colleagues, Cedric Robinson (Cedric the Entertainer) and Regina Grier (Wendy Raquel Robinson), Hightower tries to give the students, including Romeo Santana (Merlin Santana) and Bullethead (William Lee Scott), the best education despite budget cuts, while giving viewers priceless comic relief and life lessons.

In addition to the main cast, the show also featured many recurring guests including Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell of Kenan & Kel fame.

The Steve Harvey Show ended in 2002, and while we all know what Harvey has been up to since, we don't have a clue what some of the other actors have dabbled in after leaving the show.

So what have they been doing since? Let's find out!

Merlin Santana - Romeo

Merlin Santana played the role of troubled kid, Romeo. At first, he didn't get along with Mr. Hightower, but the two eventually put their differences aside and developed a father-son type relationship. Santana previously starred in The Cosby Show, and during his time on The Steve Harvey Show, he also appeared on Moesha and NYPD Blue. He later appeared alongside Eddie Murphy and Robert De Niro in the 2002 film Showtime.

Unfortunately, he was fatally shot in the head in 2002.
