Van Der Beek Throws Cold Water On ‘Dawson’s Creek’ Reunion Rumors
James Van Der Beek has been getting a lot of questions about a possible "Dawson's Creek" reunion these days. And while several members of the cast, himself included, have said they'd be interested in doing something, Van Der Beek cautioned fans on "Live! With Kelly" (weekdays on ABC) that there's no actual project in the works.
"I feel like this is the number one question that we get asked. Nobody's producing it, nobody's writing it, it's just something that comes in press," he said.
But in March, Van Der Beek, who currently stars as a parody of himself on ABC's "Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23" (Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET), told EW he would be open to the possibility if "somebody came up with a brilliant idea how to do it."
On Wednesday, Van Der Beek noted on "Live!" that his former co-star Michelle Williams doesn't exactly tamp down the speculation when she's asked about it. "Michelle Williams is always like, 'Absolutely!' I think because her character is dead." He went on to push back against Williams' idea that Jen Lindley could return as a ghost. "We never had a ghost on the show. We've never been one of the shows that's done that," he said chuckling.
When Kelly Ripa and guest co-host Mario Lopez, who himself participated in a partial "Saved By The Bell" reunion organized by Jimmy Fallon, continued to press "The Beek From The Creek" on whether he'd be open to the idea, he let up a little bit. "Why not?" he conceded.
Watch James Van Der Beek poke fun at himself and his Dawson Leery past on "Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23" on Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
