Real name: Dennis Haskins

Known for: Playing Mr. Richard Belding on Saved by the Bell for 12 freakin’ YEARS!

Brief: After working as a concert promoter, and appearing on the pilot episode of The Dukes of Hazard, Haskins landed the role of Mr. Belding in the show Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which would later be relaunched as the show that we’ve come to know and love, Saved by the Bell. After the original gang, which consisted of Zack, Slater, Kelly, Lisa, Jesse, and Screech, graduated, Haskins reprises his role as Mr. Belding in Saved by the Bell: The New Class. With an entirely new class on set, Haskins was able to play with buddy-to-students principal role for 12 whole years, ending his run in 2000.

Where is he now: Haskins has been auditioning for new roles, but has been having a tough time getting away from his Mr. Belding image. So if you can’t beat them, join them. Haskins has been touring college and high school campuses, giving Q&A sessions about his Saved by the Bell years. Most recently a friend of ours saw him partying it up at a club in Las Vegas, taking pictures and signing autographs. Go Belding!!!

Final Judgement: 12 years! Partying like a rock star? That’s hard to beat that. Nevertheless, we gotta put him on the D-LIST!
