Mark-Paul comes back as "Zack"

Just got this from Jimmy Fallon's Twitter page, and I had to share it before tonight's show:Yes, that is actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar dressed as the character that made him famous two decades ago, Zack Morris on "Saved By The Bell," talking on the 1989 cell phone affectionately referred to on the "SBTB" set as "the brick."

Mark-Paul is a guest on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" tonight, where he's sure to talk about the upcoming second season of his TNT Network legal drama, "Raising the Bar," which premieres in about 90 minutes. Zack ... er Mark-Paul also gets on the guitar and plays with The Roots. But, looks like he's also helping Jimmy's pet project.

Since taking over the reins of "Late Night" (you know I was on an episode of "Late Night," right?!), Jimmy has been trying to reunite the gang from "SBTB" to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the show as we know it (not that early "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" stuff). So far, Dennis Haskins (aka Mr. Belding), Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) and Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater) have signed on. You can even sign Jimmy's online petition to get the bunch from Bayside back together. I did!

I kinda get the feeling Mark-Paul will be the next to agree to the reunion; we'll have to wait til 12:35 a.m. EST tonight to see. If he is, it's your move, Elizabeth Berkley, Dustin Diamond and my darling, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen!
