Mark-Paul Gosselaar is making the rounds to promote his new NBC show, "Truth Be Told," but let's just be honest: That's not the show you really want to hear Mark-Paul Gosselaar talk about.
It's okay, you guys. He knows.
And fortunately, Gosselaar was in a giving mood on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday (Sept. 29), because he revealed several crazy secrets about his breakout role on "Saved by the Bell." Among them:
- Gosselaar was never, ever a natural blond. (Actually, he's half Indonesian. Who knew that?! I did not know that.)
- Zack Morris sported a different hairstyle each season because every year, everyone involved assumed the show would be canceled, and who cares about visual continuity when you're not being renewed?
- That talking-to-the-camera gimmick? Totally ripped off from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." WUT.
