Jason Priestley, ’90s heartthrob and Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, signed a book deal with HarperCollins, The Hollywood Reporter first reported.

The 42-year-old actor, who played Brandon Walsh on the Fox series, will pen a memoir surrounding his personal struggles with alcohol, (including a five-day sentence for drunken driving in 1998), as well as his turbulent working relationship with 90210 creator Aaron Spelling.

THR reports Priestley pocketed a “multiple six-figure advance for the still untitled book,” to be released in spring 2014.

Priestley currently stars on Canadian comedy series Call Me Fitz and has made guest appearances on Psych and Medium.
