Baby Number 2 Born!
"Jason and Naomi Priestley welcomed a healthy baby boy to the world yesterday, Thursday, July 9th. The baby was born in Los Angeles, California," Jason's rep, Marla Farrell, told Access.

No further details about the baby, including his name and birth weight were immediately available. However, he was born almost two years after the birth of the couple's first child, Ava Veronica, who came into the world on July 2, 2007.
 
Greetings!

Here is our second instalment of the Jason Priestley newsletter. Here's the latest news on Jason from the past few months to recent. Deepest apologies for the huge delay in getting this newsletter out to you all.
 
Barenaked Children Award
PR) Multi-platinum recording artist Barenaked Ladies received great news today as they were sailing the high seas on their annual "Ships & Dip" cruise. The band, who released their debut original children's album Snacktime early last year, was nominated for a 2009 Juno Award in the category of "Children's Album of the Year."
 
The nomination is a fantastic way for BNL to kick off the new year, as they begin their celebration of 20 years together as a band.
 
Snacktime, which was produced and mixed by Michael Phillip Wojewoda (who also worked with the band on their debut Gordon), is composed of 24 tracks, including such titles as "Pollywog in Bog," "Popcorn" and "Here Come The Geese." With 11 children ranging from three months to 12 years old among them, the band was never at a lack of inspiration or imagination. Additionally, the title track includes guest appearances from celebrities/musicians like Geddy Lee, Lyle Lovett, Jason Priestley, Sarah McLachlan, Gordon Lightfoot and more.
 
BNL is currently in the midst of "Ships & Dip V" -- the third time BNL has cruised with their beloved fans. The Norwegian Jewel left on February 1 and is sailing to Cozumel, Mexico and Norwegian Cruise Line's private island Great Stirrup Cay, returning this Friday, February 6. Additional entertainment this year includes Kids In The Hall alumni Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald, Great Big Sea, The Weakerthans, Gaelic Storm, Butterfly Boucher, The New Odds, Brothers Creeggan, Luke Doucet, Mike Evin, Christine Fellows, Boothby Graffoe, Melissa McClelland, Sloan, The Mountain Goats and Vanity Project.
The Day of The Triffids
An Irish actress has landed a role in a prime-time BBC remake of The Day of The Triffids, starring alongside Vanessa Redgrave and Eddie Izzard.
Jenn Murray, a 23-year-old graduate of Trinity College Dublin who was nominated for an Irish Film and Television Award (Ifta) for her debut cinema role, will begin shooting the big-budget drama next month.

"I'm really excited," said Murray, from Belfast. "I thought the script was really cool and then when I heard the cast, I was like 'Oh gosh', because everyone is so amazing."

The science fiction film will be shown as two 90-minute episodes. It will feature Dougray Scott, Brian Cox, Joely Richardson and Jason Priestley, who played Brandon Walsh in Beverly Hills, 90210.

Here is another article on this 2 part series.
Head Case S1 Review 
Starz has long been the overlooked child among premium cable channels, getting nowhere near the press as HBO or Showtime. Indeed, I've known folks with cable systems who actually have Starz but never watch it. The network has been trying to raise their profile in the last couple of years by adding the element that's made those other cable channels successful: original series.

Among these has been the successful Head Case which utilizes the cable format well with open swearing, nudity and sexual situations. It's a unique show which mixes in some truly over the top events and dialogue with a twisted sense of humor that borders truly incorrect. Yet it fits well if you can accept it and is a nice showcase of how some celebrities are willing to poke more than a little fun of both themselves and the mentality of Hollywood.

Toy boats made go up for auction
...A collection of Sutcliffe toy boats will also go on show at Horsforth Museum. The personal collection of Yorkshire enthusiast Jason Priestley will be on display for a year from March 28.
Mr Priestley, who has written a book about the company, bought his first Sutcliffe boat in 1983 and has been hooked ever since. He will be a guest of honour when the display is opened by a member of the Sutcliffe family.
He said: "They manufactured the boats less than a quarter of a mile away from the museum, so I think it's great that we can show them off."

New fund to encourage film and TV productions to utilize the regionCelebrity guest Jason Priestly was on hand for the Arrowleaf launch Thursday in Kelowna, and is also on the board of directors for the fund. Priestly, a famous actor and director, also owns the Black Hills Winery in the South Okanagan and has filmed the television series Hollywood and Vines here.

B.C. Actor Lends Voice To Trail Documentary
UCLUELET - One of B.C.'s best-known actors is lending his voice to a film that will promote and perhaps protect one of the community's greatest assets - the Wild Pacific Trail.

Jason Priestley, who has acted in and directed TV shows and films in Canada and the U.S. and also owns Ucluelet's Terrace Beach Resort, was in town this past weekend to narrate Walking on the Edge.

Funded, filmed and produced by an entirely local crew, the 22-minute-long documentary tells the story of "Oyster Jim" Martin's struggle to build the Wild Pacific Trail.

The Last Rights of Ransom Pride
And up next, she will play an outlaw-literally-in the Western The Last Rights of Ransom Pride opposite country legends Dwight Yoakam and Kris Kristofferson. "It's a violent, rock 'n' roll Western, and you know it's rock 'n' roll because Jason Priestley's in it," she jokes. "But I always wanted to ride a horse and carry a gun, you know? And I always want to do things I haven't done before. If it fails, it fails. But at least I'm doing something new."

Priestley hints at possible '90210' return
Jason Priestley has hinted that he might reprise the role of Brandon Walsh in The CW reboot 90210.
The actor, who starred in over 200 episodes of the original Beverly Hills, 90210 from 1990 until 2000, told WENN that he is open to the possibility of returning in the future.
"They approached me with a couple of opportunities and there was nothing that made sense for Brandon to be there. I thought it made more sense for me to come as a director...[But], I learned long ago never to say never."

Jason and Naomi Expecting #2 
 
Jason Priestley (actor in, and, lately, director of some episodes of 90210) and wife Naomi Lowde are expecting their second child, said their rep yesterday to Usmagazine.com. Lowde displayed her baby bump this shopaholic NYC weekend. In July 2007, the couple had daughter Ava Veronica. Shortly afterward, a profoundly philosophical Priestley told ABC News Now's What's the Buzz: "I love being a father. It's totally ineffable." Like, totally. That year, not altogether irrelevantly, Us Weekly named dad one of the sexiest paters in filmdom. He tells Usmagazine he and Lowde don't want to hire a nanny. Outlandish idea (in Hollywouldn't): Parent it yourself!
