It’s been over 14 years since Dawson’s Creek gave us the ultimate Cry Meme and went off air. And after all those years (and many acting gigs later), James Van Der Beek is still having to deal with it.
During a recent interview with the U.K. show This Morning, hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby introduced the actor (a.k.a “The Beek from the Creek”) by listing the impressive accomplishments of Creek alums like Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams before pondering: “But what happened to the main man himself, Mr. James Van Der Beek? Well, he’s here now and that’s what he looks like.”
“I have been on television the last 20 years, just wanted to let you know,” Van Der Beek responded somewhat amused (but not really amused). Now before I go on and on describing how awkward the whole interview was, we’ll just let you watch the train wreck below.
