Jason Priestley stars in "Call Me Fitz" on DirecTV's The 101 Network as Richard "Fitz" Fitzpatrick, a handsome, 38-year-old scumbag who got halfway through an MBA before dropping out to keep the campus pub in business. Richard, in all his nasty glory, is an infinitely relatable, entirely lovable anti-hero. There's a little Richard in all of us—whether or not we admit to it, is another matter entirely.

of and behind the camera. Priestly made a truly indelible mark with his portrayal of Brandon Walsh for eight seasons on the eponymous FOX television series "Beverly Hills 90210." The role earned him two Golden Globe nominations, and he made his directorial debut on the show in 1993, going on to produce and direct numerous episodes.

Priestly has continued to appear on television. He was recently seen on the FOX sci-fi drama "Tru Calling" opposite Eliza Dushku. After making a memorable guest appearance as Jack Harper, a forensic attendant harboring a dark secret, Priestly signed on as a full-time cast member. He has also guest-starred on numerous other shows, and co-starred on the CBS series "Love Monkey," alongside Thomas Cavanagh, Lorenz Tate and Judy Greer.

In addition, Priestly recently directed a 6-part reality series for CMT called "The Road Hammers." Shot in Nashville, the show followed a country band in its quest to break into the ultra-competitive world of country music. Priestly has also starred in numerous television movies, including ABC Family Channel's romantic comedy "I Want to Marry Ryan Banks," co-starring Emma Caufield and Bradley Cooper.

On the big screen, Priestly has appeared in the dark comedy "Die, Mommie, Die!" His other film credits include the Sundance favorite "Cherish," VH1's original movie "Warning: Parental Advisory," "Eye of the Beholder," "The Boy Who Could Fly," "No Where to Run," "Calendar Girl," produced by Penny Marshall, and the western drama "Tombstone."

Priestley directed and produced the critically acclaimed documentary titled "Barenaked in America" for the Canadian rock band, The Barenaked Ladies. The documentary premiered at the 2000 Toronto Film Festival and The Slamdance Film Festival. The Shooting Gallery released it later that year.

Priestley's additional directing credits include episodes of "Haven," "The Outer Limits," "7th Heaven," "Gross Pointe," "Spin City" and "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye," in which he also co-starred. Additionally, Priestley has directed music videos for The Barenaked Ladies and Gob. His video for "The Old Apartment" garnered a Best Director nomination at the 1996 Canadian Music Video Awards.

An accomplished stage actor as well, Priestly recently starred in the London production of Warren Leight's Tony Award winning play "Side Man," directed by Michael Mayer.
