Don’t be surprised if Luke Perry returns to the series scene. The actor, who remains indelibly etched in the minds of many as “90210’s” Dylan McKay, tells us he’d love to get back into weekly TV action again. “My kids are a little older now; my life has changed that way. A series would suit me now better than in years,” he says. “I love television, and there’s nothing better than doing a series when you have one you really like.”
Perry reunited with his one-time “90210” co-hunk, Jason Priestley, for the Hallmark Movie Channel’s “Goodnight for Justice,” premiering tomorrow night (1/29). Preistley served as director on the Western in which Perry plays a 19th Century Wyoming Territory circuit judge with a revenge agenda of his own — an idea created and produced Perry himself. Although Preistley isn’t seen in the movie, Perry smiles at the thought of devising a part for him should there be a sequel. And there is already talk of continuing Perry’s John Goodnight character in another Hallmark Movie Channel film or two.
“I’d like to do it. I’d like to find another good story to tell with this character,” notes Luke. “As far as Jason acting in it, well, it would have to be the right thing and then it would be up to Jason. I don’t know if we could afford him,” he says with a laugh.
“Goodnight for Justice” is full of fightin’, fallin’ and other action, and Luke admits, “My back isn’t getting any younger. I kind of tweaked it a couple of times. We knew it was going to be very difficult to do that kind of action and stuff in the short amount of time we had. It’s very much a credit to Jason that he was able to pull that off.”
