Jason Priestley will join Syfy’s Haven next season, as well as direct one of the upcoming episodes.
The Beverly Hills 90210 star, 41, will play Chris Weekly, an intelligent yet anti-social marine biologist who has to face an affliction many would consider a gift. He will appear in four episodes.
As far as Priestley’s directorial skills, they’re fair. The actor directed several episodes of 90210 over the series’ 10-year run and recently directed his former co-star Luke Perry in the Hallmark TV movie Goodnight for Justice.
