Zack Morris Visits Jimmy Fallon

June 9, 2009 by  

Zack Morris was cool, but Mark-Paul Gosselaar may be just a bit cooler. Last night the star of RAISING THE BAR was a guest of LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON…kind of. Mark Paul conducted the entire interview in character as his SAVED BY THE BELL alter ego, Zack Morris. Brilliant! And as you’ll see in the clip below, the guy still looks like Zack 22 years after first starting the role. (Yes, 22 years for Mark-Paul. SAVED BY THE BELL might be 20 years old, but let’s not forget that Zack Morris first came on to the screen in GOOD MORNING MISS BLISS.)

Zack, um I mean, Mark, agreed to appear in Jimmy Fallon’s SAVED BY THE BELL Reunion. And he brought word that Jesse Spano (Elizabeth Berkley) is in too! She’s so excited…so excited…she’s about to lose control and she just can’t hide it! Mark Zack and his band, Zack Attack, treated the audience to a performance of their big hit, “Friends Forever”.

With Zack, Slater, Jesse, Lisa Turtle and Mr. Belding in, that leaves Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Theisen) and Samuel “Screech” Power (Dustin Diamond) as the only two cast members yet to agree to the reunion. And if you believe the press, it’s actually Dustin that’s the hold out. What?! The guy boxes women and puts out a sex tape in order to stay in the public eye, but he won’t do a reunion of Jimmy Fallon?! Oh, he’ll do it.

SAVED BY THE BELL was a big part of my early love for TV, and I can’t wait to see the reunion.  Make it happen, Jimmy!

    THAT WAS WICKED AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! Mark Paul totally commited to it. He is soooo the man! Jimmy is also the man for planning this reunion. I don’t mind if they don’t get Dustin Diamond to do it cause I don’t like him too much.

    My brain is still exploding from watching Late night. Sooo cool!

    I love that you know Saved by the Bell started as Good Morning Miss Bliss. I remember watching the first episode when I aired because I idolized Hayley Mills. 🙂

    I don’t know who’s cooler – Jimmy Fallon for loving Saved By the Bell so much or MPG for going along with it so wholeheartedly.

    (Swoon, sigh, etc.) My TV boyfriend is back! I loved it, can’t wait for the reunion show. Jimmy Fallon just gave me one more reason to watch.

    That was most awesome and wierd thing I’ve seen in awhile! I’m glad to see Mark Paul embracing his past as Zack Morris! And as far as Dustin Diamond goes, no one wants him to come to the reunion, I saw him do stand-up once and it was awful, he cussed a lot mostly I think for the shock value. But I would love to see the rest have a reunion!

    That was AMAZING!!! I was absolutely OBSESSED with that show and I knew exactly everything that Zack was talking about on the interview.

    I cannot wait for the reunion! Screech can stay home with his lucky beret.

    That was awesome! Loved the brick phone…lol. Check out my SBTB Tribute Rap Video “I Love Bayside”

    Simply classic! Zach Morris returns and stays in character even using the timeout and phone gimmick. Unreal.

    Completely agree that the interview was so hilarious! I am totally amazed that Mark looks pretty much like he did back in the SBTB days! Can’t wait for the reunion – I’m sure it will happen! I hope Kelly/Tiffani signs on – I wouldn’t mind if they went ahead without Screech!

    I am so mad at myself for not watching this live last night. Thanks for posting the clip. Is it wrong that in watching the clip I found a mistake? I hate to admit how often I watched this show that I knew Jimmy’s comment at the end was wrong but I immediately caught it. Jesse and Zack did not kiss during a performance of Sleeping Beauty, but rather a rap musical production of Snow White and the Seven Dorks. Who can forget Lisa Turtle as the “Mirror from the Mall”?
