Saved By The Bell star Dustin Diamond 'hospitalized in Florida'

Former "Saved By the Bell" star Dustin Diamond has been hospitalized with an as-yet undiagnosed illness, TheWrap has confirmed.

According to his team, worries are that Diamond may be battling cancer.

Per TMZ, the lively performer was in Florida over the weekend and was hospitalized after feeling aches and pains throughout his body. That said, perhaps Screech's time in space could come to an end, or he could make a video cameo, which could bring Dustin Diamond back into the fold.


Sources added that Diamond's family has a history of cancer - his mother died of breast cancer. Currently, doctors are running multiple tests, including a biopsy, on the actor, TMZ reports. He played Samuel "Screech" Powers on the show in the early 1990s and in several spin-offs. Although Diamond's Screech was not included in the recent Saved by the Bell revival for Peacock, he was key to the original run of the series, particularly as the comic relief.

The actor was also part of the movie Saved By The Bell: Hawaiian Style in 1992 and the sequel Saved By The Bell: The College Years the following year.
