Some Mad Fly Answers From Jason Priestley's reddit AMA: Schwing!
You’ve likely already heard that Jason Priestley has written a memoir concerning his time on 90210. He also claims to have other shows to his name, but I’m dubious. I do remember his delightful turn as Billy Breckinridge in Tombstone. Mr. Fabian’s performance was ever so wonderful…
Why did you decide to write a memoir at this point in your life?
Just felt like the right time… seemed like I had accomplished all of the goals I had set for myself lying in the hospital in Indianapolis. I was back on TV, on a hit show seen in 195 countries… I had just won the Golden Nymph at the Monte Carlo TV Festival… I had married my girlfriend, we had two beautiful children… I had climbed back out of the hole I had found myself in… it was time to tell that story…
fuck, marry, kill: Jennie Garth, Shannon Doherty, and Tiffini Amber Thiesson.
Hahaha! What a beautiful set up!
What is the one project you regret most in your career?
Buddy too many of those to list…
What is your favourite thing you have done in the entertainment industry?
Wow… that’s a tough one… Call Me Fitz, Tombstone, Love an Death on Long Island, Coldblooded…
Hi Jason, which of your projects do you value most?
I think the projects I direct… directing is the hardest job on the set, and you spend the most time on every project, so you value them the most…
Any advice for a pig tickler?
Buddy, I don’t even know what that is…
Are you annoyed that Jaden Smith stole your trademark eyebrow frown?
Didn’t even notice that but I am pissed that Beiber has stolen my trademark look over the top of the sunglasses… ‘member that? From the opening credits of 90210? He’s stealing my move!
Jason, would you like to join Ian Ziering in Sharknado 3?
Absolutely! Call my agent!
Was Shannon Doherty really that much of a bitch in real life? Also,do you find it hard getting acting gigs nowadays?
No she wasn’t… I had a lot of good times with Shannen… You know the tabloids blow everything way out of proportion, and they certainly did with Shannen… And no, I don’t find it hard to find gigs at all these days… you can check out my resume at imdb.com
Alas, no one asked for any good stories from
Brandon Jason. So according to US Weekly:
“I could not believe my ears at Shannen’s very first words after she boarded,” Priestley recalls in his book of their travels. “Her butt had barely hit her seat before she said loudly to the PR person, ‘Really? A town car? You send a town car to take me to the airport, not a limo?’ She sighed a very put-upon sigh. I laughed, as I couldn’t really tell if Shannen was kidding or not.”
“But that was just the beginning. I looked on, becoming more uneasy by the minute as she began bitching about the short notice and the food on board and the temperature in the cabin and everything else.”
