Dawson in Mystic Falls? James Van Der Beek Weighs In
Wetpaint loves us some Dawson’s Creek.
First, you guys voted Joshua Jackson (Pacey on Dawson’s Creek) as the actor you would most like to see play the-vampire-of-all-vampires (Klaus) in The Vampire Diaries. That’s quite an honor! And then, we covered a story about The Vampire Diaries creator Julie Plec, who joked in a recent interview that she’d love to bring Pacey to Mystic Falls. Remember, TVD creators Plec and Kevin Williamson were the masterminds behind Dawson’s Creek, so it only makes sense that they have a soft spot in their hearts for the Capside gang.
But enough about Pacey: What about Dawson? Would James Van Der Beek ever take a trip to Mystic Falls? Well, he’s definitely interested in doing TV again, even after the recent birth of his son. "I'm really open to jumping back into everything," the new dad told CNN. "I did the last 10 episodes of 'Mercy,' and I really fell in love with television again.”
And, he’s pals with Kevin Williamson, natch. Van Der Beek admits the pair have lunch like, all the time, but says Williamson has yet to pop the TVD question. Even so, Van Der Beek admits he’s heard the whole thing mentioned quite often.
"People on Twitter are always asking about it," he says. "It's never come up, but I wouldn't rule it out."
We think that sounds like an invitation. Get to it, Williamson! This man can do anything!
