Pacey vs. Dawson! Who Grew Up Hotter: Joshua Jackson or James van der Beek?
It’s been almost a full decade since our beloved Dawson’s Creek aired its series finale in 2003, but our love of the hit WB teen drama will never fade away.
In what’s actually a pretty impressive feat, almost all of the show’s former stars are still quite visible on TV and in movies. In fact, Dawson’s two leading men can both now be seen on primetime TV. Joshua Jackson (Pacey) stars as quick-witted genius Peter Bishop on FOX’s sci-fi drama Fringe, while James van der Beek (Dawson) plays a hilariously smarmy fictionalized version of himself on ABC’s Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23.
A few weeks back, we took a poll to see which Dawson’s Creek dude you were crushing on most back in 1999. (Pacey won. Like, by a landslide. It almost wasn’t fair.) Now we want to know which of these former Tiger Beat teens you think grew up best.
Does Joshua Jackson continue to capture your heart today, or has the Beek won you over with his megawatt smile newly-showcased comedic timing?
