After seeing paparazzi shots of Mark-Paul Gosselaar on the beach filming his new show Franklin & Bash, I was inspired to do a Who’d You Rather: Saved By The Bell edition. Now, we can all walk a mile in Kelly Kapowski’s shoes. Choosing between these two is no easy task. I can’t believe we haven’t pitted these two against each other yet. It’s well documented that Mario Lopez still has a bangin’ body, but Gosselaar isn’t looking too shabby himself. Time has been kind to both these studs.
Since his days playing AC Slater on the classic teen sitcom, Lopez has mostly delved in the reality genre. The 39-year-old carved a niche as the go-to person to host a show. Lopez’s hosting credits include Extra, America’s Best Dance Crew and The X Factor. Before hosting, he competed on the third season of Dancing With The Stars where he was the runner-up. Mario also fronted his own reality docu-series, Mario Lopez: Saved By The Baby on VH1. My favorite post-SBTB gig hands down is his guest starring stint on Nip/Tuck. That shower scene was everything ;) Lopez is currently married to Courtney Mazza. The two have a daughter named Gia Francesca and are expecting their second child this September.
Unlike his Saved By The Bell co-star Lopez, the former Zack Morris has mainly stayed in the scripted genre. The 39-year-old actor has multiple television credits. Gosselaar starred in NYPD Blue from 2001-2005. Currently, he’s co-headlining TNT’s Franklin & Bash with Breckin Meyer. Like Mario, Mark-Paul has showed off his juicy butt. You can Google those beautiful screencaps from his TNT show and a guest spot on Showtime’s Weeds. He’s also guest starred on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Happy Endings and Rizzoli & Isles. Mark-Paul is currently married to Catriona McGinn. The two are expecting their first child in September like Lopez. How coincidental is that? Gosselaar has two other children from a previous marriage.
Without further ado, check out the guys from their days on Saved By The Bell to today. Don’t forget to cast your vote at the end.
Holy ’90s blast-from-the-past mashup, Batman! She’s All That star Rachel Leigh Cook joins Saved By The Bell hottie, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Growing Pains legend, Tracey Gold in a hilarious new Funny or Die video tackling the crimes of the craft world and the black market world of Etsy.com. In the intro to the video, the site is explained as follows: “To many, it’s the website that women all over America turn to when their poetry careers don’t take off. But beneath it’s crafty veneer lies a teaming, unregulated black market and one person rules it all with an iron fist.”
In the following video, we learn that Etsy is run by a maniacal queen named Ellie Harper (Rachel Leigh Cook). After Maggie Chester (Tracey Gold) is attacked by the Queen of Etsy, FBI Agent Michael Peck (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) investigates. Harper is one woman that you don’t want to mess with. If you’ve seen Savages, she’s essentially Elena, which was Salma Hayek’s character (minus the accent and the drugs).
Watch the ‘Queen Of Etsy‘ video below to see if they’re able to take down the
In the late 80s, early 90s, Mark-Paul Gosselaar shot to stardom playing the lovable Zack Morris on Saved By The Bell. Remember his high slicked hair and his gigantic brick-sized cellular phone? Good times. After years of playing serious roles, the actor is returning to his sitcom roots.
Tonight, he appears on the second season premiere of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 playing himself. James Van Der Beek bumps into Gosselaar and Frankie Muniz (Malcolm In The Middle) as he attempts to hold a Dawson’s Creek reunion. Seems like both ABC and Gosselaar enjoyed the experience tremendously. The 38-year-old actor just signed on to guest star on another ABC sitcom. EW.com is reporting that Mark-Paul is heading over to Happy Endings. Find out who he’s playing below.
With some of the cast of “Beverly Hills, 90210” reuniting for Old Navy commercials, it only makes sense another beloved teen drama cast reunite. James Van Der Beek who played the titular character on “Dawson’s Creek” is making diehard Creeker’s dreams come true.
On ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23“, Van Der Beek plays a heightened version of himself on the sitcom. For the season premiere, the actor is attempting to hold a “Dawson’s Creek” reunion where former co-star Busy Philipps is attending. As you recall Philipps played Audrey Liddell who was Joey Potter’s (Katie Holmes) college roommate and Pacey’s (Joshua Jackson) love interest. Will any of their former co-stars pop up? Perhaps, but what we know for sure is that James Van Der Beek will bump into two other former teen stars of popular 1990s shows. Find out who below.
If you are a child of the 90′s, you remember this classic Saturday morning staple. Saved By The Bell ran for 5 Seasons as a part of TNBC and followed with multiple spin-offs like The College Years and the The New Class. It was also the lead in for two TV movies with the original cast titled Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style and Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas. But where did it all begin and more importantly, where are they now?
Saved by the Bell followed the exploits of teens in high school and their relationship with their principal, Mr. Belding. This teen comedy was meant to be funny and dramatic and showcase teenage life, but with a message. The cast included some then “unknowns”. Zack Morris was played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar. He is the charming schemer who always has “a plan” for everything. He was also a self proclaimed ladies man which got him into trouble with the ladies more than helping him out. AC Slater was played by Mario Lopez and was the token jock of the group of friends. He’s the school’s star athlete and Zack’s best friend. Kelly Kapowski was played by Tiffani-Amber Thiessen. She was the cheerleader and “All-American Girl” and dated both Zack and Slater. Screech Powers was played by Dustin Diamond. Screech is the school nerd and has an undying love for Lisa Turtle. Lisa Turtle was played by Lark Voorhies. She was the trendy, talkative fashion expert and the gossip queen of Bayside. Jessie Spano was played by Elizabeth Berkley and was the know-it-all crusader. She is Zack’s childhood friend and next door neighbor. She also dated Zack and Slater.
