James Van Der Beek’s Career Resurrection Continues: Dawson to Star Alongside Kate Winslet in Labor Day
To us, Labor Day sounds like a rom-com starring Katherine Heigl as a newly artificially inseminated woman who’s trying to balance impending single motherhood, her career, and the pastry chef down the hall who turns into a love interest despite his unsolicited baby advice. Instead, it’s actually a movie adapted from a Joyce Maynard novel, starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin.
The film centers around the disappearance of a divorcée and her child: Winslet and her son go missing during Labor Day weekend after being picked up by Brolin’s character. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that James Van Der Beek is joining the cast as a police officer investigating the matter.
