When you think of Mark Paul Gosselaar, you think of the squeaky clean, very clothed Zack Morris. Well, he posted a photo this weekend that is very far from his wholesome Saved By the Bell image. The teen heartthrob was photographed doing a handstand naked and all I have to say is damn. He can Franklin and Bash me any night of the week. I don’t know what that means either, but I am too fixated on muscular body to care.
It has been 20 years, yes two decades, since Showgirls came out and CinemaSins wanted to remind how horrible it is by showing us everything that is wrong with it. There is so much wrong with it that it took them over 22 minutes to showcase all of its flaws.
So if you don’t remember how painful it was to watch to sit through the movie with Elizabeth Berkley in it, just watch the above video. It is a lot less traumatic, but it will still be etched in your memory for at least another 20 years.
Ever since Jimmy Fallon hosted The Late Show on NBC, he has tried his hardest to facilitate a Saved By the Bell reunion to no avail. I asked him about a year ago, now that he was going to be taking over The Tonight Show if he would try to make that dream come true. He told me, “OMG! I gave up on that. I got bored with that one.”
That was then, and this is now. Tonight, the halls of Bayside High are alive again because it happened! It really really happened. Mark Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, Tiffani Amber Thiessen and Dennis Haskins schooled the host about what it was like to be on SBTB and it is like totally awesome!
That’s right Zack, Kelly, Slater and Jessie put on their acid wash jeans and Mr Belding suited up for the occasion and not one of them has aged a day since they graduated from the roles that will forever be a part of childhoods.
I could tell you more about it, but you need to appreciate it for the masterpiece that is. There are so many dope moments in the nearly 9 minute bit that you want to drink them all up. Elizabeth Berkley said it best when she Tweeted to Fallon, “thank you for making this joyful moment for everyone happen! You brought us all back to an innocent time.” It truly was and I am glad for a little bit of time today, we were all innocent again thanks to someone’s fantasy becoming a reality.
We have anxiously been waiting for months to see the beginning of The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, and today Lifetime released the first five minutes from the telemovie.
After watching those first few minutes, it looks exactly how we knew it was going to be. It’s going to be so bad that it is like going to be like totally awesome. It is like, for sure, going to sweep the Emmys next year.
Seriously, I don’t know about you, but I’m so excited for September 1st. I can’t wait to learn even more about the lives of our favorite high schoolers from the ’90s when the cameras weren’t rolling.
Tell me I am not the only one who is doing a Jesse Spano over this movie, especially after seeing how it all starts out. I am so having a Zack attack as I type!
Twenty-five years ago, teens all over the world were obsessed with Saved By the Bell and Fine Bros wanted to know if today’s teenagers feel the same way about the show. In a word, no.
The boys and the girls that they interviewed hated the clothes, the hair, the stories, the theme song, pretty much everything about it. Which is kind of sad because SBTB is pretty much like those shows on the Disney Channel, and I think they are checking out those silly sitcoms. Which I am not proud to admit I also like. Dang you, Girl Meets World.
Even though I disagree with them about the show, they did have some valid points. That Jesse Spano over the top caffeine high scene was extremely funny, so I found their reactions to it highlarious. I also love that pretty much all the girls chose Zack over Slater. Right now Mario Lopez is hunched up in a corner somewhere over this video. Actually, I am pretty sure the cast of the Saturday Morning sitcom are more upset over the September 1st Lifetime unauthorized movie than this Q&A.
Lifetime released a sneak peek from The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story and the telemovie that debuts on September 1st is going to be an instant classic. I have a feeling it is going to be this year’s Sharknado. As in so bad it is the best thing to happen to television in a while!
On September 1st, Lifetime is going to air The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story and I am Jessie Spano excited for it.
The telemovie is a behind the scenes look about how 6 teens went from no names to household names almost overnight. So how do you experience the high life while being told to be good? That is what this movie is going to tell us.
Now before you start playing the casting game, the movie that has being filmed right now has already been cast. Here is what Lifetime said about that:
With casting by the original series’ casting director, Robin Lippin (Lizzie McGuire), Dylan Everett (Degrassi: The Next Generation) is set to play Mark-Paul Gosselaar in the role of mischievous ringleader “Zack Morris.” Sam Kindseth (Shameless) is Dustin Diamond, everyone’s favorite geek and loveable sidekick “Screech.” Julian Works (Paranormal Activity, Modern Family) fills the shoes of superstar Mario Lopez as the hunky jock “A.C. Slater.” Alyssa Lynch (The High Jumping Witch) plays the role of America’s favorite sweetheart, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, who originated the part of Kelly Kapowski. Tiera Skovbye (Supernatural, Girl in Progress) takes on the role of talented beauty Elizabeth Berkley and her beloved character “Jessie Sapano.” Rounding out the cast is Taylor Russell McKenzie (Blink) who will portray Lark Voorhies and her on-screen persona, the privileged “Lisa Turtle.”
So what are you doing on September 1st, probably the same thing I am doing, watching The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.
Elizabeth Berkley promised that she would do something from Saved By the Bell on Dancing with the Stars and tonight she delivered. So watch as Jesse Spano proves that her acting hasn’t improved since that day she that she had one too many caffeine pills. But her dancing has gotten so much better since she was in Showgirls.
The Saved By The Bell love birds Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley were reunited on his show Extra and Jessie and Slater look as close as he did on the show. Can you believe it has been almost a quarter of a century since they were in TV High School together?
They still look the same as they did they. And in the 20 years since they graduated high school, we have seen almost every inch of their naked bodies thanks to Showgirls and Nip/Tuck. In fact the only inches we haven’t see of them is his little A.C.!
Mario Lopez and his wife Courtney Mazza have a 2 year old daughter named Gia and another one on the way. Well today he told Ellen DeGeneres that he want to have four kids but his wife only wants 3. So how does he plan on getting her to his magic number? He is treating really well while she is pregnant, so that she will want to get pregnant again and again. Will his plan work? We will have to see as the years go on to find out.
I know a few diamonds, some shoes, a lot of nice dresses, several days at the spa and a nanny for each kid would totally work on me.
