Alfonso Ribeiro got his start in acting in the PBS series "Oye Willie" in 1980 before impressing pop star Michael Jackson with his dance skills and landing a Pepsi commercial with the King of Pop.
Shortly after he joined the cast of Silver Spoons (1984) for its final three seasons as Rick Stratton's (Rick Schroder) best friend Alfonso Spears. The two remain very close today.
