Jason Priestly Joins A&E’s “Bag of Bones”

It has been a while since we’ve seen the heartthrob that was Jason Priestly on our small screens. Let’s be honest, we all fell in love with him during his Beverly Hills: 90210 days. After quite the lull in the entertainment industry, Jason is ready to tackle some new projects. Jason has recently signed on to join A&E’s “Bag of Bones”, a novel by Steven King turned four-hour miniseries.

The show will air in two parts on A&E later this fall. The series also stars Pierce Brosnan who plays the lead, a writer who is struggling to recover from his wife’s death. Jason is set to play his literary agent. The production is already underway with filming beginning in Nova Scotia shortly. Annabeth Gish of X-Files and currently Pretty Little Liars also stars with Mick Garris set to direct.

“Bag of Bones” which was published back in 1998 received rave reviews and won a British Fantasy Award in 1999. The story mentioned above goes into greater detail involving custody battles, house hauntings, nightmares and more. I cannot wait to see how they transform much of the books ‘fantasy elements’ onto screen translation.

If you want more of Jason, you can check him out on SyFy’s Haven or watch for him on an upcoming episode on the USA’s hit series Psych. Are you looking forward to watching “Bag of Bones” on A&E?
