Hollywood proved once again that it is a place where dreams come true when The WB network announced Thursday that Jason Priestley will make a guest appearance on the Jennie Garth sitcom What I Like About You. The two actors
costarred in the beloved high-school drama Beverly Hills, 90210, which aired on Fox from 1990 to 2000.
Priestley will play a love interest of Garth's character, who is regretting her decision to get married after a wild and crazy night in Atlantic City. Dan Cortese will guest star as Garth's husband, illustrating the point that what happens in Atlantic City doesn't stay in Atlantic City.
This isn't the first time Garth has gotten her old friends work: Last season, fellow 90201 alum Luke Perry appeared on What I Like as a former flame.
Beverly Hills, 90210 chronicled the tale of siblings Brandon and Brenda Walsh, played by Priestley and Shannen Doherty, respectively, as they moved with their family from wholesome Minnesota to high-powered Beverly Hills, CA. The series also starred Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Tori Spelling, and Brian Austin Green.
Since the end of 90210, Priestley has appeared in the series Tru Calling and films such as Tombstone and Die Mommie Die! Priestley will soon be seen starring in the midseason pilot Love Monkey.
Cortese came to fame as an MTV Sports correspondent and a wacky hunk in Burger King commercials. Later, he starred as the wacky hunk in the Kirstie Alley sitcom Veronica's Closet and had his own show, Rock Me Baby, about a wacky, hunky DJ.
The fourth season of What I Like About You begins Friday, September 16, at 8 p.m. The episodes starring Preistley will air Friday, October 14 and Friday, October 28.
