Aron Ralston may have lost an arm, but thankfully, he didn't lose his brain.

In an interview with Access Hollywood (via AV Club), Luke Perry tells the outlet he tried to get the rights to the source material as a project for his "90210" pal but was turned down. “Brian's a great actor," Perry said. "I thought he'd be great in that part, but Danny Boyle, he got it.” Maybe in some alternate life we'll get to see what Dylan and David could have come up with. The mind reels.

Also, Perry is currently promoting his latest directorial outing, the Hallmark movie "Goodnight for Justice," where he plays a bounty hunter named -- wait for it -- John Goodnight (amazing) who apparently battles Juggalos or something. Check out the promo spot below.
