Some actors are breath-taking gorgeous when they are young and some improve with age. Mark Paul Gosselaar best exemplifies both sides of that equation. Witness the photo below from his early days in the television situation comedy Saved By The Bell and then check out the gorgeous pecs on that great beauty in the portrait above. The fact that the photos were taken at least twenty years apart is amazing. An appropriately shirtless scene with Mario Lopez from Saved By The Bell is featured below.
I've always had a secret crush on Mark and I even managed to sit through his New York stage debut in the perfectly dreadful play The Understudy. What I find so refreshing about Mark is that unlike most television actors, he's always embraced his sex symbol status and apparently has no problem being objectified. He actually seem to enjoy push the envelope with each nude scene he appears in and he's never been coy about displaying that gorgeous ass of his. Mark was one of the first leads on a TV series to provide some rear nudity which was fairly daring for its day. The occasion was the second season of NYPD Blue and featured here are some photo caps and video highlights.
More recently Mark appeared in the Showtime series Weeds and his fucking scene with Mary-Louise Parker has to be the highlight on the series.
The photos below were shot while Mark was on location shooting the current season of Franklin And Bash and its apparent that Mark's body is still in incredible shape and his face has retained that youthful freshness that endeared him to us, so many years ago in Saved By The Bell. Let's hope that before too long we may be treated to many more displays of Mark's pulchritude and that perhaps there's a full frontal scene in his future.
