James Van Der Beek Joins 'One Tree Hill'
The 31-year-old actor will return to his old Dawson’s Creek production lot in Wilmington, N.C., which is currently used by OTH. Van Der Beek will play a director who’s interested in making a movie out of Lucas’ (Chad Michael Murray) novel.
Says executive producer Mark Schwahn, “The specter of Dawson’s Creek is always around us. We’re about to [complete] 128 episodes, which is what Dawson’s did. “So I thought it would be cool to get James.”
Van Der Beek‘s episode will air in late November.
