After only a three week battle with carcinoma, Dustin Diamond has died. The 44 year old actor was best known for his role as Screech as a young kid in "Saved By the Bell". Diamond continued to act throughout the "Saved By the Bell" franchise including reprising his role in "The College Years" and "Saved By the Bell: The New Class". He also appeared in a number of reality TV shows including "The Weakest Link" and even "Celebrity Big Brother" where he became a house member.
Dustin Diamond made an appearance and even did some stand up at the Mary Graydon Center when I was in college at American University. Sad to hear of his passing, he was too young.
