Breckin Meyer Has Very Unkind Things To Say About 'Saved By The Bell's' Dustin Diamond and His Penis

If you are a shut-in with unlimited time, a student with nothing to do with your summer, or a pop-culture blogger, I’d actually suggest watching the entire half-hour interview below with Mark Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer. They’re promoting the fourth season premiere of Franklin and Bash, and while I’m a Suits guy, I enjoy the hell out of Meyer and Gosselaar’s camaraderie. There’s a very real Faison/Braff thing going on between these two, as they give each other sh*t for real-life eccentricities (Gosselaar shaves his legs, while Meyer paints his nails, and refuses to stop).

But if you talk to these guys for half an hour, Saved by the Bell is bound to come up, and it did so hear when Gosselaar was asked if he knew anything about the unauthorized Saved by the Bell movie that Lifetime is making. He said only that he knows it’s happening, but that no one in the cast was involved.

The movie is allegedly based on Dustin Diamond’s memoir about his time on Saved by the Bell, and that actually prompted Breckin Meyer to speak out against Screech. That part of the conversation comes around the 25-minute mark in the video, but here’s a transcript.

Meyer: That guy is such a dick. I need to say it. I don’t know Dustin at all, but… [Gosselaar] and I have talked endlessly about Saved By The Bell … The Dustin Diamond thing is just so silly. It’s just so negative and it always bums me out.”

Gosselaar: “Everything that I’ve heard about his book is negative and I don’t remember those things. My experience on the show was very positive and that’s why when people say, oh you don’t like talking about it,’ it’s like no, I don’t mind talking about it, I just don’t really remember that time and also everything I do remember was extremely positive. I still have friendships from it.”

Meyer: “I know Elizabeth and Mario and Tiffany. And everyone has nothing but awesome times [sic] to say about that, except for Dustin. That might be you, bro. I think it’s bullshit. I think he’s so full of shit, like his sex tape. You saw it. That’s not him! Come on, Screech is not packing that. Get the hell out of here. He doesn’t have six Beldings beneath him. There’s no fucking way. You’re full of sh*t, Dustin. Suck it.”

    Theres something about Breckin Meyer (and Seth Green) that is just so punchable.

  • Art3mis

    So Breckin Meyer just admitted to watching the Dustin Diamond porn video, yes? I feel like that's the real story here.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I have not read the book. I watched Saved by the Bell some (more in syndication during college, because, well, college). I'm not saying Dustin Diamond is right. I am going to say: what are the odds that the skinny, unattractive nerd remembers the junior/h.s. experience - even the making of a fictional one - somewhat less fondly than all of his attractive [currently more successful] peers? That never happens in real life, right?

  • DebMoore

    Perhaps, but I have met him in real life and he was a jerk. I live in the area he grew up and my High School friends had gone to grade school with him. Well once we ran into him at Disneyland and first of all he was wearing a "Saved by the Bell" jacket (Like we all didn't already know who he was!). At first it was fun to meet him and hang out with him (since he and my friends knew each other) but after about half an hour or so we ditched him because he was being a jerk. I said something to the tune of "he is kind of a dick huh?" and my friends said yeah he was like that back in grade school that's why they don't hang out with him anymore.
    (BTW this was back in the early 90's and the show was either still on the air or had just wrapped up)

    I didn't have a *bad* high school experience, but I don't look back on it with great memories. But I know a lot of it was on me. I was eccentric, I was immature, and I was too bought into what "hollywood" high school life should be like vs. real world high school life. I went to my reunion and the damndest thing happened - I didn't remember a majority of the people there although everyone knew who I was and were warm and friendly. It freaked me out. And I decided not to go back.

  • dizzylucy

    I haven't read the book either, but just in the general history of Hollywood, teen shows, and kids of that age getting rich and famous, I'd be willing to bet the truth is somewhere between his version and the "everything was lovely and wholesome fun" angle MPG is going with.

    However, the choice to write a tell all is always a little icky to me, and probably not healthy in terms of moving on with your life.

    Side note - I have always really just despised Breckin Meyer. I have no reasoning for this, it just is.

  • NateMan

    Very fair point. Although Diamond is enough of a skeezy creep to make me have very little empathy for him.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    no doubt. But growing up the butt of everyone's jokes can't be easy. I think it takes a really secure sense of self even for adults to go there.

  • Salieri2

    I am so tired, I diagrammed "growing up the butt of everyone's jokes" in a really unsettling way. Probably your last sentence holds true either way.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    hahahaha, no, that's a hilarious read. Had not occurred to me.

    Ditto on the tired.

  • Needs more anger

    Breckin better watch out, Kevin the Robot doesn't take kindly to people messing with Screech.

  • Where does Breckin Meyer and Dustin Diamond feuding rank on the celeb scale?? IS IT A Z-LIST?????

  • dizzylucy

    Yes. Yes it is.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Somewhere between Jay/Bay and Mister Ed/Andy Griffith.

  • NateMan

    Hey, Breckin Meyer deserves way more status than that for Robot Chicken.

  • emmelemm

    His tardiness speech in Clueless was absolute gold.

  • Anyone know how many Beldings are in a cubit?

  • Jebus

    I know there were two Beldings in one building. One of which was balding

  • Wōđanaz Óðinn
  • Both balding Beldings beat beige bongos behind Bada Bing
