Jason Priestley To Direct '90210' Episode
And the 39-year-old star will reportedly be joined by his former onscreen sister, Shannen Doherty, who is in negotiations to return for two more episodes less than a month after turning down offers to extend her contract with the show's producers.
Doherty's negotiations follow original co-star Jennie Garth's agreement to add another five episodes to her stint on 90210.
The pair's former castmate, Tori Spelling, turned down the chance to reprise her role on the spin-off following a reported salary dispute, and another 90210 oldie, Luke Perry, has repeatedly refused to talk about the new show— even though his character is part of the storyline.
Executive producer Gabe Sachs admits he's just happy that Priestley is potentially onboard, "I think it would be a kick for Jason to work with any of his (former 90210 co-stars), and it would also add something special to that episode."
Meanwhile, another former Beverly Hills, 90210 star, Brian Austin Green, has revealed he wants to make a cameo appearance in the new spin-off series.
He recently denied rumors he has been approached to play David Silver once more— but now claims he would consider a walk-on part if he was offered the chance.
He says, "If it made sense, it would be fun to do just a couple of scenes."
