Dustin Diamond Plays Up His Image On ‘Knights Of Prosperity’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Not all child stars are bitter about their pasts. Some, like Dustin Diamond, even like to joke about it on camera.

The Saved By The Bell alum is guest starring as himself on the ABC sitcom The Knights Of Prosperity tonight (Jan. 31) and admits playing himself is always an interesting experience.

That’s because portraying himself stills require acting because people think he’s “supposed to be a certain way.”

On the Knights episode, Diamond acts by playing up his well-known persona, incorporating funny elements of his real life into the story line.

Says Diamond: “The guys on the show get stuck with me and I take them to a comedy club where I do cheesy jokes for a bunch of old, bored people in the audience. Then we sit at home and I force one of the guys to watch old Saved By The Bell reruns with me while I eat chicken and laugh hysterically. It’s really awkward and funny.”

By the way, Diamond says that as a result of his recent porn release, Screeched, he’s not getting asked to audition for romantic roles but he is getting offered more dramatic parts.
