Dustin Neil Diamond is an American actor, musician, director, and stand-up comedian best known for his role as Samuel "Screech" Powers in the television shows Saved by the Bell, Good Morning, Miss Bliss, Saved by the Bell: The College Years and Saved by the Bell: The New Class.

  Biography  

 early life
Diamond was born on January 7, 1977, in San Jose, California.

 career
Diamond's most memorable role was that of the nerdy Samuel "Screech" Powers on the television show Saved by the Bell, a role he played for close to thirteen years from its beginning as Good Morning, Miss Bliss (1988–89) through its final incarnation, Saved by the Bell: The New Class (1994–2000). Continuing the series into college, Saved by the Bell: The College Years shows most of the cast transplanted into not only the same college, but also the same college dormitory, where Screech continued his typical misadventures. The College Years was canceled after one season. Diamond returned to Bayside High as Principal Belding's assistant in The New Class episodes, remaining with the show until its cancellation.

 Sex Tape
In 2006, Diamond directed and released his own sex tape Screeched - Saved by the smell.

 Appearances after Saved by the Bell
Diamond began doing stand up comedy after the end of Saved by the Bell, and has toured on and off ever since. He has also been featured on a number of game and reality shows including The Weakest Link, Celebrity Boxing 2, to name a few. Diamond has also made several cameo appearances in films, including appearances in Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star in 2003 and in Made in 2001. In 2009, he also played the part of "Alumnus Guy #1," in American Pie Presents: The Book of Love. In 2010, he had a supporting role in the sports comedy Tetherball: The Movie. In it Dustin plays the "Foul Mouth"'s down-on-his luck coach.

 Celebrity Fit Club
In 2007 Diamond was a cast member of the fifth season of Celebrity Fit Club, during which he came off as aloof and uncooperative as his refusal to alter his dieting habits and aggressiveness toward his castmates caused much conflict. He particularly came into conflict with former American Idol finalist Kimberley Locke, country singer Cledus T. Judd, rapper Da Brat, the program's host, Ant, and the program's trainer, former USMC sergeant Harvey Walden IV. Tensions between Diamond and the rest of the celebrities culminated in an open confrontation during which Diamond initially challenged Ant to "physical combat" and subsequently issued the challenge to Harvey Walden after Walden defended Ant.

 ''Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling
Diamond appeared as a contestant on Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling, broadcast on CMT. A huge fan and supporter of professional wrestling, Diamond was previously involved with Memphis Championship Wrestling in March and April 2000. He has had many wrestling involvements since then as a referee, manager and even a tag team partner.

 Other work
He is also a musician and formed his own band called Salty The Pocketknife. Diamond played bass and wrote much of the music as well. Shortly after recording their first album, the band split up due to internal disagreements. Diamond has also appeared on truTV's The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest... as a commentator.

He will appear as a host at the 12th annual Gathering of the Juggalos.

 personal life
In July 2008, Diamond signed a deal with Gotham Books to write a tell-all book about what life was like behind the scenes of one of America's most watched shows. The book, released in 2009, is called Behind the Bell.
