Priestley will appear on 90210 alumni show

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.

I would just like to say that I personally loved the show and can't wait until it comes out on DVD so I can have everyone of the seasons. My reasons for watching it was Brandon, Dylan, and who can not ever forget about David. They are so hot and so good looking. I still watch the show everyday at 5pm on the Soap channel. I just can't get enough of that show.

Is this all Jason Priestley does now? Guest spots, I think I've seen him guesting on about four shows on cable in the past two weeks.

He needs a new agent - one that can him a role other than the brother, uncle, neighbour, best freind, ex-lover of the shows main character.

Alright Jason going to be on it. Now we need Tori and Brian and Tiffani. I would like to see Shannen on but I doubt that will happen since those two didn't get along.
