Dustin Diamond: Screech Powers
Dustin Diamond, who purports to be nothing like his geeky, bumbling Saved by the Bell character, has had a slightly more difficult time keeping his career alive. Unlike his former cast mates, he stuck around for Saved by the Bell: The New Class (1994-2000), playing Principal Belding’s (Dennis Haskins) assistant. That was probably a good call, because ol’ Dusty hasn’t been in anything of note since. Unless you consider his “leaked” sex tape, Screeched: Saved by the Smell, “something of note.”
When he’s not bragging about his sexploits (he claims to have slept with over 2,000 women — eww!), Dustin does stand-up comedy, makes the occasional movie cameo, and appears on reality shows. The highlight of his reality career? When he pissed off four other unfit D-listers on Season 5 of Celebrity Fit Club.
In 2009, Dustin released Behind the Bell, a tell-all book about his Saved by the Bell years — much to the chagrin of his former cast mates. When asked what would happen if Mario and Mark-Paul were to seek revenge for some of his more damning “reveals,” Dustin dished to RadarOnline, “I'm more dangerous with martial arts than Mark-Paul or Mario ever was. I'm not the character Screech. The last thing they'd want to do is harm me in any way, because then that's a whole new legal battle and paparazzi thing. I can own all of Mario's, um, hosting shoes. What does he have?”
