But whatever. Last night, Mark-Paul Gosselaar showed up to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon dressed as Zack Morris (I have to admit, the hair had me swooning like it did when I was six), and did an entire interview in character, and it was actually pretty brilliant. I had no idea Mark-Paul Gosselaar was so cool about this stuff! As far as I'm concerned, this boosts him up near NPH levels of awesome self-awareness.
And the Late Night writers hooked him up with some pretty great material, about how he is really Zack Morris, but that he had to change his name to Mark-Paul Gosselaar because there was already a Zack Morris in SAG, how he was married to Kelly but they got divorced and she, heh, moved to a different zip code, and there was even a giant cordless phone sight gag that worked much better than those usually do. So yeah, I admit it. I'm usually inclined to hate things like this, but they made it work over there. Great job, guys!
P.S.: Isn't is so weird how some people don't age? He and Rob Lowe should have some sort of people-who-haven't-aged-in-20-years-off, and Sean Astin should judge it. Anyway, video of the segment below!
