There’s nothing more attractive in a celebrity than one who doesn’t take himself too seriously. And no one in the business is better at than than James Van Der Beek. More

It’s always pretty delightful when an actor shows up in a movie or television show playing him or herself. If it’s in a serious role, it leads you to have all sorts of meta concepts swirling around your head. If it’s just a funny cameo in which they play a caricature of themselves, it shows they’re a good sport and don’t take themselves too seriously. More
When I think of James Van Der Beek, I don’t immediately think of Dawson’s Creek. Crazy, I know, but the show aired when I was in elementary school and I was more interested in playing in a creek than watching TV. But I do think of him as a hot celebrity who made it big at a young age. Like today’s Justin Bieber, now. More
I don’t know about you, but I love me some Dawson’s Creek and so do the reviewers on Amazon. Growing up in the ’90s, I’d spend hours watching Dawson’s Creek reruns while downing my Cap’n Crunch and day dreaming about the next *NSYNC concert. More
Sometimes I just want to give the TV people a good talking to. It seems like all the funniest, most original, non-cliche shows get canceled just when I’m starting to like them. Either that, or the network moves them around the schedule until suddenly they’re airing at 3:46 AM on a Saturday and you have no idea until a week later when you can’t find it online or on demand or in repeats.

So it’s pretty much guaranteed at this point that Channing Tatum is going to be People‘s “Sexiest Man Alive,” because he starred in a movie about male strippers and has muscles. Personally, I think he looks like a big, bumpy, beady eyed jock who I would not like to have sex with,* but People is entitled to its opinion. That said, I reserve the right to talk about who People could have chosen, had they any taste or imagination. Here are ten dark horse candidates I wouldn’t mind seeing on that cover.
*I’m sure he’s a really nice person and I feel bad for judging his looks but you took it there, People. More
James van der Beek gave his Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23 co-star Krysten Ritter a jar of wolf urine. Totally normal present, right guys?!? More
Genius! Absolute brilliance. The man who played Zach Morris returns to TV as the man who played Zach Morris. Expect at least 6 acid-washed jean jokes. And one massive cell phone prop. More
Last night, as part of his ongoing effort to make us feel bad for talking shit about celebrities like we know them, Jimmy Kimmel invited various famous people to read mean tweets about themselves while looking all forlorn. It didn’t make me want to throw in the towel and become a nice person, but it did make for entertaining television. More
Having Katie Holmes followed by Scientology goons is one thing, but not letting her play Joey Potter again? Tom Cruise was an awful husband with questionable taste in teen soaps. More
Winning a Golden Globe for Episodes, Matt LeBlanc may be one of the more successful actors to play himself on TV, but he’s definitely not the first. From totally made-up representations to characters that—whether or not anyone wants to admit it—are a lot more fact than fiction, many celebs have decided to play perhaps their easiest roles ever… themselves. Get ready for the season premiere of Episodes on Sunday, July 1 by checking out some of the funniest TV shows with actors who kept it real. More
Never in my life did I think I would actively pursue a sociopathic roommate that makes my life more challenging and more dangerous on a weekly basis. But after watching The B in Apartment 23 this season I’m adding it to my list of “people I want in my life.” More
Last night was the premiere of ABC’s Don’t Trust The B– In Apartment 23. We’ve already discusses our fascination with James Van Der Beek playing a meta version of himself. But the former Dawson’s Creek star isn’t the only one playing a tripped out version of himself on the show. Tate Ellington shows up on the first episode as the fiance of June (Dreama Walker), the nice Midwestern girl who ends up in the apartment of the titular “B.” In real life, Tate is actually getting married next month.
