A hearty congratulations to James Van Der Beek for finally getting a job! The former “Dawson’s Creek” star appears in the music video for Ke$ha’s “Blow” — playing himself. The glitter-addicted pop singer refers to him as “James Van Der Douche” and — spoiler alert! — kills him in the end, displayed his head on a wall with placard that reads “James Van Der Dead.” Betcha he wishes he could have stayed in Capeside forever… Keep reading »
It appears that we left one VIHG (that’s a “very important hot guy”) off our list of dudes at Comic-Con on Friday. Joshua Jackson. We fell in love with him when we were 16 and he starred on “Dawson’s Creek” as Pacey Witter. Apparently, Joshua fell in love with himself then too. At Comic-Con, Joshua staged a rogue event outside the convention hall called “Pacey-Con.” At Pacey-Con, he handed out fan fiction that he wrote himself, blasted the show’s theme song (“I Don’t Wanna Wait … “), and dressed as the fashionably challenged Pacey as two compatriots held up a sign that read “Capeside to San Diego.” Yeah, fine. Rather than being totally solipsistic, this is kind of cute. Darn you, Joshua. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
When “Dawson’s Creek” first aired, I was in 7th grade and was caught in a blissful lust-cloud of my first “relationship.” Gregory Ware* was the self-appointed Dawson of Pine Cobble School, not because he was so arty or into film, but mainly because he had blond hair kind of like Dawson’s, dressed like him (oh, how I don’t miss the days of baggy khakis and unbuttoned plaid shirts), and was the most attractive guy in our class. (However, it’s not like he had a ton of competition, considering the average class size at our teeny private school in Western Massachusetts numbered 20 or so.) If Greg was Dawson, then I took after Jen, because, well, I was a blonde. But I’d also become the school’s new girl, an import from New York City. At the time I transferred to Pine Cobble, Greg was “going out” with Haley, the Joey figure; the two had been friends for a while and lived close by. Although Haley and I became part of the same group of friends, we maintained a competitive relationship for years.
Just as quickly as partners swapped on the show, so too did hand-holding change at Pine Cobble. Keep reading »
“I have never seen one episode of ‘Dawson’s Creek.’ I must be the only person on this planet. I went to a Women in Hollywood event two months ago and Katie Holmes was being honored. And all of her clips of ‘Dawson’s Creek’ were with Josh and it was so weird. He was all pimply and had a bloated face [laughs].

Everyone’s buzzing about the teens on “NYC Prep” with shockingly bad attitudes. They may be complete brats, but they come from a long lineage of child douchedom that’s been keeping television going for decades. Here, a look back at their predecessors, the kids that have made their marks by being horrible. Keep reading »
What if Katie Holmes posted homemade videos about her life on YouTube and gave the world a look inside one of the more mysterious marriages in Hollywood? That’s what the chick behind Don’tCallMeJoey has in mind when she films herself impersonating the former Dawson’s Creek star and wife of Tom Cruise — her resemblance to the actress is uncanny, as are her vocal inflections, and the result is hilarious. Check out the clip of “Katie” drunk, above, as well as others on her YouTube page. Keep reading »
