Jimmy Fallon Interviewed “Zack Morris” Last Night

By Lindsay Robertson / June 9, 2009 - 9:38 am

Last night, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon got a lot further in their quest to reunite the cast of Saved By The Bell when Mark-Paul Gosselaar appeared in character as “Zack Morris” and updated Jimmy on his fabulous life in Hollywood, where he moved after school to be an actor with his two best friends and high school principal: “I had to change my name to Mark-Paul Gosselaar because there was already a Zack Morris in SAG.” Zack, as Mark-Paul, now stars on the show Raising The Bar, which he managed to fully promote without ever dropping character. Oh, also? Turns out Zack and Kelly Kapowski were married, but “Things got pretty rough after we split up. Kelly moved to a different zip code.” Zack even plays a Zack Attack song backed up by The Roots. Who knew Mark-Paul Gosselaar was a such a good sport/funny guy?

This could be a running gag with ’90s shows. (Do ALF next!)
