Dustin Diamond, best known for his portrayal of the nerdy Screech on the ’90s tween sitcom Saved by the Bell, has been cast in the English-language version of an indie animated film from Honduras called tGUS.
The 85-minute low-budget production, directed by Terio Xontm, was produced by the Central American media company called Non Plus Ultra, who after 3 years of production, have completed the film and are trying to get the project distributed theatrically in Central America and beyond. Diamond will star in the English dub amongst a cast of American actors and voice-over talent that includes Jareb Dauplaise (Wayne in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody) and Brina Palencia.
Described as a psychedelic homage to films from the ’70s and ’80s, it features two divine hounds—Skypuppy and Hellmut—wagering over the virtue (or lack thereof) of the citizens of the anarchic city of tGUS. The film announced Diamond’s casting and other details in an IndieGogo fundraising campaign which has temporarily been halted. The film has a Facebook page and below is the video about the fundraising campaign:
