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.
