LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all. In an effort to get to know some of those characters a little better, we've created "Seven Questions with..." If you have a suggestion for a future Seven Questions subject send us an email.

Today's subject is Alfonso Ribeiro.

Alfonso, who was first spotted dancing with Michael Jackson in a Pepsi commercial in 1984, is probably best known for working alongside Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air where he played Carlton Banks. The actor/dancer also played Rick Schroder's best friend on the early 80's sitcom Silver Spoons and shared the screen with LL Cool J from 1996-99 as Dr. Max Stanton on In the House.

Alfonso who tells LAist he's "making it happen; every day, every dollar, one at a time" can now be seen on on GSN where he hosts both GSN Live and the game show Catch 21, which enters its second season tonight at 7:30 p.m.
