Mark-Paul Gosselaar does Fallon interview as Zack Morris, commits to reunion

We knew Raising the Bar's Mark-Paul Gosselaar was a good sport when he came into EW for a meet-and-greet last year, faced a room full of entertainment junkies reenacting scenes from Saved by the Bell (okay, that was just Tim Stack), and fed Annie Barrett cupcakes. But doing an entire interview on last night's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as a grown-up Zack Morris gives new meaning to the term. (Maybe he was game because he got to perform Zack Attack's "Friends Forever" with the Roots? UPDATE: That was one of Gosselaar's conditions. He talks all about the appearance here.) The big news — other than that Zack never upgraded his cell phone and Fallon does an excellent "time out" — is that Gosselaar committed to Fallon's Saved by the Bell reunion and announced that Elizabeth Berkley is also in. That just leaves Tiffani Thiessen and Dustin Diamond, who's supposed to be penning a tell-all about the show. (Mario Lopez, Lark Voorhies, and Dennis Haskins had already RSVP'd yes.) Are we excited about this idea now?

    Good God, that was amazing. A lot of actors could have (and have been) complete dicks about the show that made them famous. Glad to see he embraces it.
    The hair, the phone, the life-size Kelly Kapowski!
    My week has been made.

    I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited in my adult life. Even if Dustin Diamond won’t commit (you won’t be missed, crazypants), I’ll still be giddy.

    Dustin Diamond needs money badly, he’ll be in if they ask him. He lives in my area (Wisconsin) and there are random stories about him here and there about his money troubles and his house in foreclosure and whatnot. He’ll be there.

    Loved the “moved from Indiana with my two friends and the principal”


    That was great its nice to see an actor not shy away from the character that made him famous now if only more actors could take the stick out of their a$$es and just have fun with it.
