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.

Where is Screech?! Dustin Diamond Misses 'Saved By the Bell' Reunion

Dustin Diamond was noticeably missing when the cast of Saved By the Bell reunited for a special skit on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (February 4) in Los Angeles.

Five of the cast members – Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Dennis Haskins – got back into character and onto the Bayside High set for a fun new skit.

Dustin, who played the role of Samuel “Screech” Powers in the 90s sitcom, has had some legal trouble lately, which may have led to his absence. He was arrested back in December for allegedly stabbing a man, which actually happened days after he did a Saved By the Bell spoof.

Also missing from the reunion was Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle and was Screech’s love interest.

'Saved By the Bell' Cast Reunion on 'Fallon' = Best Thing Ever!

Jimmy Fallon has been bringing us some amazing things from his Tonight Show run in Los Angeles this week… but the Saved By the Bell cast reunion on Wednesday (February 4) might be the best one ever!

The four main stars – Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack), Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Kelly), Mario Lopez (Slater), and Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie) – and even Dennis Haskins as Mr. Belding were on hand for the sketch. There were some cast members who were noticeably absent from the reunion though!

The skit saw Jimmy enrolling in Bayside High and telling his friends that he planned on moving to New York to be a comedian, a Saturday Night Live cast member, and possibly even Nicole Kidman‘s boyfriend.

Jimmy going on a date with Nicole Kidman is like Jessie becoming a stripper,” Zack said in reference to Elizabeth going on to star in the campy stripper flick Showgirls.

The skit also does a nod to Jessie Spano’s caffeine pill freakout, which became a popular meme for a while.

Dustin Diamond's Tell-All: Behind The Bell!

Former Saved by the Bell star Dustin Diamond, aka dorky Samuel “Screech” Powers, is writing a tell-all memoir about his days at Bayside High.

The book, titled Behind the Bell, hits shelves Sept. 29 via Montreal-based Transit Publishing. According to Us Weekly, the book promises sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying that occurred throughout the nearly thirteen years he was a part of the hit sitcom franchise.

“This book is freaking incredible!” Dustin‘s literary agent, Jarred Weisfeld, has said. “Everyone that reads it loves it, and [it] is truly one of my favorites of all time.”

Noticeably missing is Dustin Diamond, who played the nerdy Samuel “Screech” Powers. Maybe he was embarrassed of his 2006 sex tape Screeched, aka Saved by the Smell.

The reunion special covers “The hookups, the meltdowns, the memories: The cast reveals what was really going on… and what they think of each other now.”
