I’ve been a fan of Mitchell Hoog’s work since seeing him in the life-affirming Netflix movie Walk. Ride. Rodeo. (opposite Spencer Locke and Alyvia Alyn Lind). The former pro snowboarder turned model-writer-producer-actor has since mesmerized on screen in a slew of huge projects including Harriet, Freaky, and now as Mac Morris (yes, son of OG Saved by the Bell‘s Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s Zack Morris) on Peacock’s reimagined Saved by the Bell.
I sat down over Zoom video recently to speak with the versatile Mitchell Hoog about playing Zack Morris’ son, his bonding moments with co-stars Josie Totah and Belmont Cameli, and what he’s excited for viewers to see on Saved by the Bell.
Saved by the Bell is now streaming on Peacock. In Canada, new episodes are available every Thursday on the W Network.
