Jason Priestley: Excited to Direct 90210

by at . Comments

Earlier this week, Jason Priestley confirmed that he's coming aboard 90210 as a director. He'll be behind the camera for the show's 18th episode.

Now, the actor that portrayed Brandon Walsh is speaking out about the upcoming experience.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” Priestley told Ryan Seacrest on the American Idol host’s KIIS-FM radio show. “It’s going to be a lot of fun to go over there and work with all those guys... I just hope that Jennie’s in the episode that I do, or that Shannen’s there, That’d be fun for me.”

Indeed, Garth - whose character is currently off in search of Dylan - has signed on for six more episodes; Doherty, for two more.

As for returning to direct the spin-off of the show that made him famous, Priestly said it was an easy choice:

“It kind of fits like a glove, really."
