Mark-Paul Gosselaar certainly doesn't look like Zack Morris anymore and that's on purpose. The Saved By the Bell veteran looks unrecognizable thanks to Pitch, his new Fox drama about the first female pitcher in Major League Baseball. He's bearded and beefy, all for the role.
"I'll keep that a secret because insurance, because I may not qualify for life insurance," Gosselaar told reporters at the 2016 TCA Summer Press Tour when asked how much weight he put on. "They always ask you oh have you gained or lost five pounds in a year and I'm like, ‘Five pounds? I lose that in a week! I gain it in a week.' It was substantial. It's not too often that you walk into a casting room and the creator of the show says, ‘I'd like to have you to play a character.' A lot of times in television they'll have you come in and there's a character on the page, but they're really buying yourself."
