James Van Der Beek: 'Da Man' Magazine Feature!

James Van Der Beek raises his eyebrow in this feature for Da Man magazine’s June/July 2011 issue, featuring Ryan Kwanten on the cover.

Here is what the 34-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On how being a father has affected his career: “It’s changed the trajectory of my life. I feel like before my daughter, my priorities were arranged like a stormy sea—spread out everywhere; different ones popping up at random. And I was just floating along in the middle of it all. The minute my daughter arrived, everything instantly got rearranged like a pyramid, with my daughter and wife at the top, and everything else existing to support that.”

On life outside of Hollywood: “My wife and daughter get first priority, and then I’ve also got some great friends who I still try to meet up with as often as I can.”

On how his Funny or Die skits came into fruition: “I loved what the website Funnyordie.com was doing, so I asked to meet with them. They very carefully, very tentatively asked if I was aware of that five-second crying clip, and I laughed. Some of my Twitter followers tweeted it to me, and I just thought it was so bizarrely funny that someone had taken such a sincere moment and was now using it to mock people. They pitched a very funny idea that eventually became the Vandermemes short, and we shot it. We messed around with a bunch of different memes, and I guess every couple of weeks they put a new one up there. It was all done for a laugh. That’s basically how we came up with all four shorts—they pitched ideas, we picked three, shot them and then, since we were putting so much time and energy into it—we decided to do a mock short film on the making of the three videos.”

FYI: James is wearing Perry Ellis V-Neck Sweater.

IMO, looking serious and intense doesn’t work for JVDB. I know that this photo shoot was “serious” and called for dressing up, but it just doesn’t work for him as is just not that attractive. He needs to smile more, be more playful and loosen up in his photo shoots and let people know that he’s grown up and out of his “serious douche bag” phase that plagued him for the Dawson’s Creek years and beyond. Oh, and stop pimping out his family would help too.
