Here's What the Cast of 'Saved By the Bell' Looks Like Now!
By John Boone
If only they threw 22-year high school reunions. Still, May 22 is officially 22 years to the day since Saved by the Bell -- the regular years, not TheCollege Years no one cares about -- went off the air in 1993.
Here’s what the cast looks like two decades later:
Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris)
Voted “Most Likely to Succeed,” Gosselaar starred on NYPD Blue and Franklin & Bash after Saved by the Bell, and he had an arc on CSI. His NBC pilot, People Are Talking, just got picked up for the Fall! He’s also now a father of four.
Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski)
Voted “Most Likely to Have the Perfect Family,” Thiessen recently starred on White Collar and voiced Misty the Wonderful Witch for Disney Junior. Now, she’s expecting her second baby boy and has a Cooking Channel show called Dinner at Tiffani’s.
Voted “Most Likely to Be on a Reality Show,” Lopez has all but given up acting (unless you count playing himself in Nashville and Honey 2). Instead, he’s the host of Extra, was runner up on the third season of Dancing With the Stars, and is a father of two.
Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano)
Voted “Most Likely to Be an Advice Columnist,” Berkley guest starred on The L Word and CSI: Miami post-SBYB (and post Showgirls) and also competed on Dancing With the Stars. She also has a self-help book called Ask-Elizabeth and is mother to a son.
Dustin Diamond (Samuel 'Screech' Powers)
Voted “Most Likely to Be Arrested,” Diamond was recently arrested (he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon after allegedly stabbing a man with a switchblade at a bar). Before that, he released his own sex tape, Screeched: Saved by the Smell, published a SBTB tell-all, and appeared on Celebrity Fit Club. He was not invited to the Saved by the Bell reunion on The Tonight Show earlier this year.
Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle)
Voted “Most Likely to Skip the Class Reunion,” Voorhies has published three books with titles like True Light: A, superior, take, unto, the, premier, haloing, of, tenuation. Readily, available, True Light, provides, resource, into, time's, motifed, and, vestuved, authenticate, revelation. She missed The Tonight Show skit because of “an intense work schedule.”
Voted “Most Likely to Keep Being Mr. Belding,” Haskins kept his Saved by the Bell streak alive by playing Mr. Belding on Saved by the Bell: The New Class until 2000. Since then, he has had bit parts on shows like Hot in Cleveland.
Ed Alonzo (Max)
Alonzo has acted here and there (he was on an episode of Modern Family), but mostly does magic: He created illusions for TheCircus Starring Britney Spears tour and was working on Michael Jackson’s ill-fated This Is It tour. His Wikipedia page also says he is, “suspected as being a vampire”???
