Oooops! What a terrible close-up photo of Jason Priestley on the cover of TV Times (April 25): pale face, unbecoming five o'clock shadow, and a few unattractive blemishes. I'll bet he wasn't too happy with that photo either. Dan Bodak, Van Nuys

Reynolds as Reynolds: Burt Reynolds will appear as himself on the April 28 episode of Fox's "Beverly Hills, 90210."

Between planes and pranks, it would seem that Jason Priestley isn't having a good day at Magic Mountain. Squatting behind the camera, in white T-shirt, jeans and wire-rimmed shades, Priestley still looks like the star of "Beverly Hills, 90210," which he is. But this time around, he's calling the shots. For his first crack at directing--a "BH, 90210" episode called "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window," which airs Wednesday--Priestley looks the picture of affability.
