Profile: Mark-Paul Gosselaar

Michael from Hartford has helped us out a lot over the past couple of years, and here he comes through with a terrific find.


  1. It's the profile you were born to write, baby!

  2. Are we sure Zack Morris (the character) was not Jewish? Zack's mother's name was Melanie Rhonda. Plus, I'm sure he must have been modeled on, uh, Corey Haim...

  3. Well, we do know he was part Native American...

  4. Is Mark-Paul Gosselaar the most famous person who is of both Jewish and Asian background?

    As for Zack Morris, I'll assume his background is Jewish mother, non-Jewish father who's part Native American. You know, kind of a play on/flip around of MPG's own roots...

    1. Ah, you're right, although the level of "fame" could be debated.

      Interesting that all three of these actors are less than half Asian...

  6. P.S., your entry on Schneider says he's half-Filipino... but really he's a quarter.

    Hailee Steinfeld is another example, though she's just 1/8th Filipino.

  7. Hey there,
    Since you 2 guys LOVE "Saved by the Bell" so frigging much (I must admit it's a guilty pleasure of mine too) Er-hem... which was the worst show ever!* (wink, wink)* was the creator of "Saved by the Bell" Sam Bobrick Jewish? or Not? :)

  8. Yes I can see why you wrote Yes as Yes?... Hmmm. Maybe that's worth you guys profiling and investigating. Er, that awful, terrible show...(That I secretly loved)?? ** = stars in my eyes. :)
