Jason Priestley

His name is still Brandon.

Though Jason Priestley is keeping himself behind the camera as the director of an upcoming episode of the CW's 90210, he hasn’t denied himself playing a Brandon all together. In fact, the BH90210 alum will don his famous moniker for a guest gig on NBC's My Name Is Earl.

As first reported by Access Hollywood, Priestley will play Brandon, Earl's better-looking and more successful cousin, whom we first meet in a flashback to Earl and Joy's first wedding anniversary. On that memorable day, viewers will learn, Earl discovered that prior to his marriage, Joy had a steamy affair with his cousin.

Priestley's Earl visit marks his first on-camera work since the short-lived Lifetime series Side Order of Life.
