NEW YORK – Luke Perry says having his former “90210” co-star Jason Priestley direct his new TV film wasn’t exactly a reunion because they stayed close friends even after moving on from the teen drama.

Perry says of Priestley “always talk on the phone,” and his other male co-stars, including Ian Zering and Brian Austin Green, were a “really good strong core group” while the show aired from 1990 to 2000. He says they maintain close ties to this day.

Perry stars in and Priestley directs the Hallmark Movie Channel’s “Goodnight for Justice,” which premieres Saturday at 7 p.m. Eastern. Perry plays a judge in Wyoming in the late 1800′s.

Perry says the friendship and trust he shared with Priestley created a sort of “shorthand” when it came to filming.
