A&E’s Bag of Bones miniseries just added a familiar name from Beverly Hills, 90210.

Jason Priestley has been cast in the project, playing the main character’s literary agent. Bones is based on a Stephen King novel about a writer (Pierce Brosnan) trying to recover from the death of his wife while staying at their lakeside retreat in Maine, where he begins to realize she still has something to tell him. The news comes after Priestley just joined the cast of another cable project based on a King novel — Syfy’s Haven.

Also: Bones has cast William Schallert, whose career spans from appearances in Wagon Train to True Blood, as the father-in-law of a young mother (Melissa George) going through a custody battle. The four-hour event will air later this year.
