intro: News broke this week that Lifetime will air the movie, "The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story," which is expected to shed light on what really went down when the cameras stopped rolling on "Saved by the Bell."
Robin Lippin, the original casting director for the show, reportedly has chosen six actors that look eerily like Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez and the rest of the gang to play the stars of the hit TV series that ran from 1989 to 1993.
BuzzFeed broke the news Thursday and revealed the cast members -- and here they are!
