Luke Perry says having his former 90210 co-star Jason Priestley direct his new TV film wasn’t exactly a reunion because they stayed close friends even after moving on from the teen drama.
Luke says he and Jason “always talk on the phone” and his other male co-stars, including Ian Ziering and Brian Austin Green, were a “really good strong core group” while the show aired from 1990 to 2000. He says they maintain close ties to this day.
Luke stars in and Jason directs the Hallmark Movie Channel’s Goodnight For Justice, which premieres on US TV this weekend. Luke plays a judge in Wyoming in the late 1800s.
He said the friendship and trust he shared with Jason created a sort of “shorthand” when it came to filming.
