Unlike Dancing with the Stars
contestant Ian Ziering
, his Beverly Hills 90210 costar Jason Priestley dismisses the idea of joining the popular celebrity dance program. When asked by Canada’s Jam! Showbiz Entertainment news website if he has any intentions of joining Dancing with the Stars
, the 37-year old actor has replied “Not a chance."
Priestley actually takes delight in watching reality shows just like Dancing with the Stars
. In fact, he has been spotted in the audience giving his support to Ziering. He also thinks highly of Ziering who takes his dancing sincerely. "Here's the thing about Ian - he is so ultra-competitive. He's not a guy who played team sports or organized sports when he was a kid. So as an adult he's really competitive. He's taking this all really seriously, which is very funny. But he's doing great. I'm happy for him and he's excited about it," Priestley has mentioned to Jam!
Nevertheless, the former Beverly Hills 90210 actor is not yet ready to go down the reality TV drift. "I'm still fighting against the whole reality TV trend. I can't just buy into. Now, if I know somebody on one of these shows, I'll watch it. But to actually do it? I can't really see myself going that route," Priestley has told Jam!
A native of British Columbia, Canada, Priestley is best known for his role as Brandon Walsh on the television series Beverly Hills 90210. He has appeared on numerous television shows like Tru Calling, Love Monkey
, Without a Trace
and What I Like About You
. He has also worked in movies like The Boy Who Could Fly, Calendar Girl, Eye of the Beholder, Standing on Fishes, Hot Tamale
and Going the Distance
to name a few.
