James Van Der Beek Mocks "Sad Dawson" in New Funny or Die Video
James Van Der Beek
Some actors would be offended by being best remembered for looking ugly while crying. Thank goodness James Van Der Beek is not one of those actors.
In a new Funny or Die video posted Tuesday, the former Dawson's Creek star announces the launch of his new site, JamesVanderMemes.com, and shows fans of his infamous "sad Dawson" meme that he has so much more to give. "The more I saw websites' comment sections mocking the sadness of others, the more I realized what the Internet was really demanding: more intense emotional close-ups of my face," the 33-year-old actor says.

Now that both Van Der Beek and his Dawson's co-star, Joshua Jackson, have displayed their knack for self-deprecation — Pacey Con forever! — who else wants to see these two reunite for Funny or Die?
