Dustin Diamond (aka Screech) Wasn't Invited to the 'Saved By the Bell' Reunion

Earlier this month, Jimmy Fallon reunited the leads from Saved By the Bell for a hilarious reunion sketch – but many wondered why Dustin Diamond (aka Screech) wasn’t involved.

Turns out, the 38-year-old actor wasn’t invited to participate. Dustin said he found out a few days before, when a friend of his girlfriend’s texted him about it.

“It would have been fun, but I don’t see it as a personal insult,” Dustin told Fox. “Here’s the way I look at it. I walk a very honest and humble path, and I know what kind of person I am. I’m very comfortable where I fit in life. I want to have a family. I want to have kids and I want to raise them right. I’m playing comedy clubs. I’m not rich, but I make a living. I’ve tripped and fallen many times in my life. If you don’t, how do you learn?”

Five of the cast members – Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Dennis Haskins – were able to make it onto the show for the hilarious skit.

Also missing from the reunion was Lark Voorhies, whose rep said she could not attend due to a heavy work schedule.
