No, Mark-Paul Gosselaar didn't channel Zack Morris when he appeared on The Tonight Show this time, but he did talk about his memorable character. For one thing, he mentioned that it was Ferris Bueller who inspired the way Zack talked directly to the camera, and for another, he reminded everyone that the blond hair definitely wasn't natural. Meanwhile, when Jimmy Fallon asked Mark-Paul to pronounce his last name, the actor explained that it was a Dutch name, adding that his mom is from Indonesia. "People don't know that Zack Morris is half Asian," he said.
