Screech to Tell All in New Book
Dustin Diamond, 31, who played Samuel "Screech" Powers on the popular sitcom and its spinoffs from 1989 to 2000, has landed a book deal. In Behind the Bell, Diamond will dish on what he and his costars – including Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley – did when cameras weren't rolling, according to New York magazine.
The book, which Diamond will pen with help from a ghost writer, will include "sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying," the magazine reports.
Diamond is no stranger to controversy. In 2006, he got in a scuffle with a woman who allegedly broke into his hotel room while he was on tour with an adults-only comedy show. Earlier that year, he announced he was selling T-shirts to raise money to save his Milwaukee home from foreclosure.
