“The Beek” Goes On…UGLY BETTY

James Van Der Beek

James Van Der Beek, who much to his dismay will always be fondly remembered as the one and only Dawson Leery, will be making a rare TV appearance this season on UGLY BETTY.  According to E!, James will play the owner of Atlantic Attire, a fashion house who has dealings with the Mode Magazine.  But when Van Der Beek’s character finds out that Mode’s Editor, Alexis Meade (played by Rebecca Romijn) is a transsexual, the business dealings may turn sour.

My love for Dawson’s Creek (at least the early years) knows no end, and so to hear that a Creek alum will be returning to TV,  even if for a brief stint, makes me happy.  Not as happy as if Josh Jackson got his own lead role on a lead drama series (um, yeah Shonda Rhimes, I’m STILL talking to you), but this will do.

No word yet as to when The Beek’s appearance will be, but when I know…you’ll know.

    Wow! I can’t believe Dawson actually has a role!

    And is there something we can do to get JJ his own series? Because I’d be ALL for that!

    The Beek kicked ass and took names in a two-part series on Criminal Minds. He was awesome.

    I would have liked Dawson’s Creek, I think, if I had let myself get into it. I only saw a few episodes.
