Mark-Paul Gosselaar

Mark-Paul Harry Gosselaar (born March 1, 1974) is an American actor. He is best known for his roles as Zack Morris in NBC's Saved by the Bell, Good Morning, Miss Bliss, and Saved by the Bell: The College Years, Detective John Clark in NYPD Blue, Jerry Kellerman in TNT's Raising the Bar, and more recently Peter Bash in TNT's Franklin & Bash. Gosselaar was born in Panorama City, California. His father is Dutch, and his mother is Indonesian. Gosselaar has three siblings. He began acting at a young age. He spent his teenage years in the Santa Clarita Valley in Southern California, where he attended Hart High School. Gosselaar first came to public notice in the role of Zack Morris, the star of the hit series Saved by the Bell, which aired on NBC from 1989 to 1993. Gosselaar's character was adapted from the short-lived Disney sitcom Good Morning, Miss Bliss; although that show was cancelled after one season, NBC executives believed that a similar show, with Zack Morris as the series lead, had potential for success. He reprised the role in two TV movies and a less-successful spin-off, Saved by the Bell: The College Years. In 1995, Gosselaar did a Cameo as Zack Morris in a second spin-off
