Bio

Jason Priestley is a Canadian-American actor and film director best known for his starring role as the virtuous Brandon Walsh on the television series Beverly Hills, 90210; from 1990-2000.

He currently stars as Richard "Fitz" Fitzpatrick, a morally bankrupt used-car salesman whose consequence-free life is complicated by the arrival of do-gooder Larry, another salesman who claims he is Fitz's conscience, in the dark comedy television series Call Me Fitz, since 2010.

In Call Me Fitz, he not only stars in the lead role of Fitz, but he also produces and directs.

Priestley appeared in the feature film The Last Rights of Ransom Pride in Alberta with Kris Kristopherson, Dwight Yokum, Scott Speedman and Lizzy Kaplan, and appeared in the BBC's modern-day remake of the sci-fi thriller The Day of the Triffids, alongside Dougray Scott, Vanessa Redgrave, Brian Cox and Eddie Izzard.

While Priestley is best known for his role as Brandon Walsh on the hit FOX series Beverly Hills, 90210, he has created many memorable television characters on shows including A Side Order of Life, Love Monkey, Tru Calling, Masters of Horror, Medium, Haven and My Name is Earl.

Behind the camera, Priestley has directed numerous episodes of ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager, including the season finale, and directed an eight-part reality series for the Great American Country Network called The Road Hammers. Shot in Nashville, the series follows a country band in its quest to break into the ultra competitive world of country music.

Other directing credits are 90210, The Other Woman based on the Joy Fielding novel for the Lifetime Network, and the web series The Lake for WB.com.

Priestley also developed the feature film Death of a Freerider. Based on a Rolling Stone article by Jesse Hyde, the film is based on the tragic true story of Sam Brown, a young Canadian mountain biker who got caught up in the world of international drug smuggling.
