Since I'm sick, all I can do is creep the web for updates on celebrities and see what strikes me as interesting. Here's what I'm finding.
Jimmy Fallon's dream of reuniting the cast of "Saved By the Bell"?
(By the way, Principle Belding was at CCSU a few months back for a lecture in the Student Center.)
What have the other cast members been up to since 1989?
Mark-Paul Gosselaar, a.k.a. Zack Morris, has a show on USA called "Raising the Bar." He and his goldilocks try to make a difference. I also remember an episode of "Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit," in which he played a man in the gay porn industry who was attacked.
Mario Lopez of course has America's Best Dance Crew and that animal talent show that no one cares about.
Dustin Diamond - "Screech" - is in porn. Movies and toys. Fantastic.
Lark Voorhies, the chick who played Lisa...well I checked her IMDB profile and only recognized a couple of soap operas. Must be because of that horrible name.
Elizabeth Berkely, who played that slut Jessie, has a recurring role on "CSI: Miami" as - you guessed it - a huge bitch. And don't forget "Showgirls." Classic.
Tiffany Thiesson - or Kelly, every guy's dream girl - has been in spoofs and tv shows since her "Bell" days. My favorite surprising appearance was a Honey DeLune, Will Ferrell's wife in "The Ladies Man."
Zac Efron turned down the opportunity to do a remake of "Footloose," as well he should have, because he said he doesn't want to be typecast as a singre/dancer and wants to take on more serious roles. Too late, "Hairspray"/"High School Musical"/"High School Musical 2"/"High School Musical 3" actor (although his new comedy with Matthew Perry looks good). Besides, you can't do a remake of "Footloose" - it's a Kevin Bacon classic. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Comcast's Picks for the 29 Ugliest Rockers (random and cruel, but quite amusing)
Lemmy Kilminster of Motorhead [looks crazy]
Iggy Pop [still alive? doesn't look alive]
Courtney Love [oh that's not true, just put a little makeup on her "Pikachu," a la Chelsea Handler, and she'll be fine - since that's all you really ever see of her these days...]
Shane McGowan of The Pogues [who is this? he looks like the elf/goat guy from the old Tom Cruise movie, "Legend." I love that movie]
GWAR [this shouldn't even count. First of all, don't they call themselves aliens or monsters or something equally as crazy? And since they're wearing masks and costumes, who's to say they're actually ugly? I bet under those disguises, they're Calvin Klein models.]
Gene Simmons of KISS [I expected him to be Number 1 on this list, but they placed him accordingly. So far these musicians have been quite beastly.]
Lil' Jon [I'm confused, they did say Ugliest Rockers, didn't they?]
Fergie [I agree on this one, but wow for Comcast to drop this kind of bomb on a still currently-successful artist. They obviously don't care about any repercussions she may try to bring]
Amy Winehouse [she could be pretty, if she weren't so ugly]
Rick Ocasek [just looks old]
Kerry King of Slayer [not so much ugly as fitting the typical Metal style]
Lil' Wayne [still does not count]
Dee Snider of Twisted Sister [agreed.]
Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones [another one of those 'can't believe he's still alive' rockers]
Tiny Tim [you can't call such a beautiful man ugly! he's having a wonderful time]
Michael Jackson [too easy.]
John Lydon of the Sex Pistols [has crazy eyes]
Boy George [looked at lot better via Karma Chameleon, and that's saying something.]
Janis Joplin [when you sing like that, you don't have to be pretty]
Meatloaf [I think that's just a wacho picture, he was never horrible-looking. He sang "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," how could he be ugly?]
Mick Mars of Motley Crue [I'm going to have nightmares about this guy tonight. He looks like he should work in a morgue or funeral home, or like the dead minister from "Poltergeist."]
Rick James [bitch.]
Eddie Van Halen [what do you expect after years of the rock 'n roll lifestyle?]
Joey Fatone of 'N Sync [again, rockstar? But he's not so bad.]
Sanjaya of American Idol [why is he on this list? he's my dream guy. SANJAYA.]
Clay Aiken [again, too easy.]
Marilyn Manson [this man really has always scared me.]
David Draimon of Disturbed [I actually don't think he's so ugly.]
Alice Cooper [love this guy. very ugly.]
