No one does sculpted virtue quite so well as Jason Priestley. He's signing his brand-new book of memoirs tonight – titled, rather mysteriously, Jason Priestley: A Memoir. Ironically, Priestley was the object of such ardor and fascination during his decade as Brandon Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210 that a confessional, even in the pre-Internet age, was almost moot; his fans seemed to know more about him than he did himself (spoiler: no inside dirt on Joe E. Tata!) The longtime long-distance racer – because goodness is truly dull unless it's tempered by a streak of danger – stars lately on HBO Canada's Call Me Fitz as a metaphysically muddled car salesman. It's a change of character that gently tweaks the previous perception of Priestley as a nice guy. Not that this book signing would change that in any constitutionally substantive way – well, unless you brought him a copy of “I Hate Brenda” to sign, because he's only signing copies of his memoirs and nothing else!
