Mark-Paul Gosselaar paid a little visit to the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show last night in his Saved By The Bell character Zack Morris. Gosselaar was really on the show to promote the new season of his TNT drama Raising the Bar but spent most of his appearance playing up the notion of a Saved By The Bell reunion. It’s pretty funny to see MPG in character as Zack Morris again … he doesn’t really look like he’s aged much at all:
As he’s established himself as a grown-up actor with roles on “NYPD Blue,” “Commander in Chief” and now “Raising the Bar,” Mark-Paul Gosselaar has (understandably) distanced himself from his first big role on “Saved by the Bell.” Consider the distance achieved. Gosselaar was a guest on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” Monday — and did the whole appearance in character as Zack Morris, his “Saved by the Bell” alter ego. Or is it that he’s been “Zack Morris” all along, and just had to change his name to “Mark-Paul Gosselaar” when he got his SAG card because there was already someone with his name in the union? Fallon has made it his mission to host a “Saved by the Bell” reunion on “Late Night,” and it looks like things are lining up. I only hope that Zack and Kelly can put aside any lingering hard feelings over their breakup.
Hahahahaha … so awesome! I’m pretty sure it won’t be too difficult to get the other Saved By The Bellers on board for a proper reunion … if anything, Mark-Paul er, I mean Zack Morris‘s appearance shows that there is still a huge amount of love for Saved By The Bell. After the jump, check out Zack Morris‘s full appearance on Late Night last night …
All I have to say is that if they don’t bring back Miss Bliss … it ain’t a real Saved By The Bell reunion. What did y’all think … funny, yes?
