‘Saved By The Bell’ star Dustin Diamond has been hospitalized in Florida, his rep confirms to HollywoodLife, and is undergoing ‘testing’ to find answers.
Saved By The Bell star Dustin Diamond was hospitalized in Florida over the weekend of January 9, his rep confirms to HollywoodLife. The actor, 44, had reportedly suffered from pain “all over his body and a general sense of unease” and was taken to the hospital for testing, according to TMZ. “Concerning the story, it is true and at this point they are doing more tests to determine” [Dustin’s condition],” his rep told us in a statement.
Dustin’s team is reportedly concerned that he could have cancer, according to TMZ. The outlet also claimed that one of the tests Dustin is receiving at the hospital is a biopsy. His rep did not elaborate on these claims. Dustin is best known for playing Screech on four seasons of Saved By The Bell, and on Saved By The Bell: The New Class. His last role was the 2020 short Catching Up.
Dustin was the only original member of the main Saved By The Bell cast not to return for the show’s 2020 reboot on Peacock. However, Elizabeth Berkley, who revives her Jessica Spano character in the series, said the door was open for him to join in the future. “We’ll see if there’s another season, maybe it’s something to explore,” she said on a November episode of Watch What Happens Live.
This story is still developing. HollywoodLife will keep you updated as more information about Dustin Diamond becomes available.
