From Dawson Leery to James Van Der Beek: A Timeline of the Apt 23 Star's Career

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.
