James Van Der Beek Explains Who Diplo is on 'Late Show': 'The Frank Sinatra of Electronic Dance Music'

James Van Der Beek is dapper in a suit while making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday (August 2) in New York City.

The 40-year-old actor talked about his early beginnings as an actor, his big break in an Edward Albee play, and talked about playing EDM producer Diplo in his new Viceland series called What Would Diplo Do?, which he wrote.

“The world’s divided into two people. There’s people who have no idea who Diplo is and then there’s people who cannot fandom that anybody doesn’t know who Diplo is,” James told host Stephen. “So to the people in the former group, I say Diplo is the Frank Sinatra of electronic dance music. He’s a world famous DJ-producer, and he’s worked with everybody from Madonna to Beyonce to Justin Bieber. If you listen to popular music at all you know his songs, but you don’t really know his face.”

James Van Der Beek Gets 'Lit' at TCA Summer Press Tour

James Van Der Beek was jumping for at the TCA Summer Press Tour!

The 40-year-old actor took flight on the red carpet at the event for his Viceland series What Would Diplo Do? on Friday (July 28) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

During the panel, James spilled on Diplo‘s reaction to the satirical show, which was loosely based on his life.

“The only way to do a show like this is only if someone is completely game,” James explained, adding that Diplo even made suggestions to make the character look completely stupid.

He added, “We had to argue that we had to make this character somewhat likable…He is so confident in his ability that he’s allergic to taking himself so seriously.”

As for what Diplo thought of the finished series?

“It’s lit,” he told director Brandon Dermer.

James Van Der Beek Admits He Never Watched the 'Dawson's Creek' Finale

Don’t bother asking James Van Der Beek about the series finale of his show Dawson’s Creek because not only does he not remember what happened, he never even watched the episode!

“I’ve never seen the last episode,” the 40-year-old actor said on the Allegedly podcast.

James, who is currently promoting his new Viceland series What Would Diplo Do?, said that he “thinks” he knows how it ended.

James was asked about his opinion on Katie Holmes‘ character Joey ending up with Joshua Jackson‘s character Pacey, instead of Dawson.

“It’s interesting,” he said. “It’s a weird thing because people, obviously when you make any kind of entertainment, they own a relationship to it. It’s amazing and the fact that it resonates with anybody today or that they’d even care about my thoughts on it. I feel like my thoughts on it are kind of irrelevant.”

“I’m not as invested in that because it was something that I did, it was not something that I wrote. Honestly, I feel like a passenger in the whole thing,” James added. “Honestly, it’s a weird thing to relate to because it’s not so immediate for me.”

James Van Der Beek Looks So Handsome for 'Rogue' Mag!

James Van Der Beek shows off his impressive bicep in this new feature for Rogue magazine.

Here’s what the 40-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On the riskiest thing he could do: “I get credit for being a risk taker, but really it’s the only option for me. The riskiest, worst thing I could do would be to keep doing the same thing.”

On characters he’s drawn to: “I love blind spots. I love character flaws. Anytime somebody is so narcissistic that they don’t see the truth that everybody else around them can see, I find that funny.

On his new series What Would Diplo Do: ‘“The show is pretty much my midlife crisis…It’s a lot less obnoxious than a sports car.”
