Mark-Paul Gosselaar Lays Down The Law

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar has no problem laying down the law.

The former Saved By The Bell heartthrob stars on the new legal drama Raising the Bar, in which he plays a passionate public defender who’ll do anything to defend even his sleaziest clients.

While he enjoys exploring his lawyer side, the cop side of the law is more up his alley.

When he played an officer on NYPD Blue, it was a “boyhood dream come true.”

Gosselaar explains, “I always wanted to be a cop. The cop I played on NYPD Blue was the closest character to myself that I’ve ever played and I loved it.”

His family gets a kick out of watching him take down bad guys on TV, although his four-year-old son still doesn’t get what Daddy does for work.

His tot visits the Raising the Bar set, but not to watch Gosselaar in action.

He says, “All my son knows is that there’s candy and slurpees on the set – that’s all he needs to know!”

Raising the Bar premieres Monday (Sep. 1) on TNT.
