Although he’s currently on the Fox show Fringe and in the new movie Lay the Favorite (which is about gambling and not, um, sex), Joshua Jackson will always have a hint of Pacey about him. Unlike some people we know, Joshua embraces his iconic TV show roots: It’s been nearly 10 years since Dawson’s Creek ended, but he still looks back on the show with fondness. He’s so wonderful.
In an interview with The Guardian, Joshua says he doesn’t cringe when he thinks about DC. “I look back on the haircut, the bad skin, and the breaking voice with a wince!” says Joshua. (What is he talking about?) “I guess I look back the way other people look back at their college years. Dawson's Creek was my college experience.” Best university ever!
In fact, Joshua has been known to school people on the subject through Pacey-Con. “Yeah, I'm keeping him alive in a way that I didn't quite think through,” explains Joshua of the Funny or Die sketch. “It's just that, in my life, I've found that show is so damn important to so many people. I hope people appreciate my stance with Pacey-Con. I'm not out to kick the guy when he's down.” Obviously. We’re hoping there will be a repeat at this year’s Comic-Con!
Of course, Joshua has managed to find success outside of Pacey. But he admits, “It's so difficult to process success when you're young. I'm not surprised that some people never readjust and move on. But that's the trap. Because if you don't, you're dead. If you don't grow as an actor, you really shouldn't be working. So I want to move on and I want to be challenged.”
We respect that. But does this mean we’ll never see Mighty Ducks 4: Come Home to Roost?
