Fans of “Saved By the Bell,” have I got a treat for you.
Joining me today is actor Dennis Haskins, who everyone knows as Mr. Belding, the principal on the show through multiple incarnations, starting with all 72 episodes of the original series from 1989-93, on through an episode of “Saved By the Bell: The College Years,” the movies “Saved By the Bell: Hawaiian Style” and “Saved By the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas,” “Good Morning, Miss Bliss” and 80 episodes of “Saved By the Bell: The New Class,” from 1993-2000.
There are even rumors of a “Saved By the Bell” theatrical release in the works.
Honestly, though, I’m more interested to talk with Haskins about his recent multi-episode arc on the first season of the new TNT dramedy, “Men of a Certain Age.” His certain were with Scott Bakula.
Haskins is here to promote his upcoming gig as host of “ACME Saturday Night” this Saturday, March 27. You can watch the online comedy TV show streaming live online @ http://www.acmecomedy.com at 10 pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific.
DENNIS HASKINS podcast excerpt: “TMZ is very liberal with the truth. Sometimes they’re nice to you, sometime they’re not. If you believe the good stuff, you’ve got to believe the bad stuff. I had one situation where they put stuff on that was a complete fabrication. There’s nothing you can do about it.”
