Krysten Ritter and James Van Der Beek
James Van Der Beek is getting good at playing James Van Der Beek.
After spending a few years out of the limelight (and debatably in the "has-been" category), the Dawson's Creek star began his comeback in 2011 by capitalizing on his character's signature ugly cry. A year later, Van Der Beek is back at it, playing a smarmy yet extremely charming caricature of himself on ABC's Don't Trust the B---- in Apt 23.
"We run with it," Van Der Beek tells TVGuide.com "Fake me goes on fake Dancing with the Stars. There's a sex tape me and Chloe (Krysten Ritter) make that gets released."
