A few weeks back, Mark-Paul Gosselaar (aka Zack Morris aka Peter Bash aka My Future Best Friend) appeared on Happy Endings as Max’s new, super cool, hot-tub-having, cable-package-upgrading roommate. As we discussed at the time, the episode ended with his character vowing to get revenge on Max after the gang accidentally (and unknowingly) spilled the beans that he was using the apartment as a big city love shack to boink a bunch of women who were not technically his wife. We all wondered at the time if that meant he was coming back, and sure enough, he is, later this season. HuffPo’s Maureen Ryan has the details in a post titled “Why You Should Watch Happy Endings.”
Mark Paul Gosselaar, who’s carved out a nice comedy career for himself (he was also very funny on “Don’t Trust the B”), will return as Chase, who wants to ruin his former roommate Max’s life, but then he “realizes Max may not have a life to ruin. So Max, resenting this, begins to build a life, with Jane’s help. But only for an episode — he’ll still be Max,” Groff said. [HuffPo]
Given Tuesday’s excellent prank-related episode, he may want to be careful about all that. You really don’t want to cross Max. You could end up getting slimed, or shot with paintballs, or confused about your ancestry, or glued to a toilet, or, well, getting slimed again. And you really don’t want to cross Alex, now that we know what we know about her. Watch out for that tiny pyscho, Mark-Paul.
