James Van Der Beek Joins 'One Tree Hill'

Former Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek will make a guest appearance on One Tree Hill, reports EW.

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.

  • Amy

    Well, I am really very glad to read that news! \o/

    Dawson’s Creek will never be forgotten and the James’ appearence on OTH just remarks how great his character and also the tv series itself was. I moderate one of the DC’s communities at Orkut and of course we are celebrating together with you guys among the considerable number of fans that exists in Brazil.
    Congratulations, Van der Beek!
    DC Forver!

  • sarah

    AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IM SO EFFING EXCITED! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE JAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WENT THROUGH MOST MY TEENS WATCHING DAWSONS CREEK, AND I CANT WAIT TO SEE HIM BACK ON THE WB!

  • ashleyree19

    I am soooo excited about his appearance… OTH is a great show but Dawson’s Creek can never be replaced! The only thing that would make this episode better is if ALL of the Dawson’s Creek characters were going to be on it, especially Katie Holmes!!! For all of you who are being jerks towards Dawson’s Creek and James Vanderbeek, I officially hate your stinkin’ guts!!
