Jason Priestley Says '90210' Was 'Just Another Job' on 'Chelsea Lately' (VIDEO)

To an entire generation of young people Jason Priestley was and forever will be associated with the character of Brandon Walsh from the original 'Beverly Hills, 90210.' While he accepts this, he doesn't seem to be as attached to the character himself, as revealed on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).
On his new-to-the-US DirecTV series, 'Call Me Fitz,' he plays a much smarmier and unlikable anti-hero, and that seems to suit him just fine. Though he couldn't find the expression to say it, he indicated that playing such an iconic role on such an iconic show is a bit of a double-edged sword.
Certainly many actors and actresses have struggled with typecasting after playing signature roles for many years on television. The kids of the original '90210' were no different.
