Throwback Thursday: Celebrate Mario Lopez's Birthday with These Classic Slater Saved By the Bell Moments

Originally posted 10/09/2014 04:15PM

Mario Lopez has a lot to celebrate this month. The Extra host recently released his memoir, Just Between Us, and is ringing in his 41st birthday on Friday.

The fitness enthusiast and former Dancing with the Stars contestant has done a lot with his time in the spotlight, but many still remember Lopez as Saved By the Bell's friendly, flexing jock A.C. Slater. Since Slater was always a bit of party animal – he loved busting a move at The Max – we're taking a look back at some classic Saved by the Bell moments to honor Lopez's big day.

Throw on your neon windbreaker and add a little more volume to your hair, it's time to go back to Bayside High.

The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story Trailer Is Out – Watch It Now

Originally posted 08/08/2014 04:30PM

Hard-core Saved by the Bell fans have been waiting 20 years for this.

Lifetime has released the first glimpse from The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, but so far, there's nothing scandalous – the trailer depicts a normal group of teenagers dealing with hormones.

The clip shows the Elizabeth Berkley character (who played Jessie Spano) trying to de-escalate the competition between Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) and Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski) for the attention of Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), while Dustin Diamond (Screech Powers) tries to keep up with the physical prowess of Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater). And all the while, the six teens ignore adult direction – pretty much your average high school dynamic.

Diamond's 2009 book, Behind the Bell told of less-PG activities, like drug use and sex, but Lifetime claims their story is unrelated to the tell-all, and is instead based on new interviews with those associated with the show.
