The actor who played Screech is planning a racy tell-all about his years as the lovable nerd on Saved by the Bell.

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.
