Jason Priestley, who played Brandon Walsh on "Beverly Hills, 90210," is writing a memoir.

The 43-year-old actor has inked a deal with HarperCollins, which will publish the book under its HarperOne imprint, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In the memoir, Priestley will touch on his personal life, his 2002 car crash and his five-day stint in jail for drunken driving in 2000. He'll reportedly also share new revelations about his time on "90210," including his complicated relationship with series creator Aaron Spelling.

"Writing your memoir is no small task," Priestley said in a statement. "And although I've only been on the planet for 44 years, I've lived a lot in that time. I hope my story will enlighten, entertain, and inspire those who read it."

Since leaving "90210," Priestley has made guest appearances on TV shows like "Medium" and "My Name is Earl." He currently stars on the comedy "Call Me Fitz," which airs on HBO Canada and streams on Amazon.

The currently-untitled book will be released in spring 2014.
