James Van Der Beek joins 'CSI' spin-off as 'action junkie' agent

The Beek will play FBI Agent Elijah Mundo, “an expert in battlefield forensics recruited by Special Agent Avery Ryan (series star Patricia Arquette) for his war efforts in Afghanistan. Mundo is a savant when it comes to weaponry, vehicles and bombs.

Together, they will team up to fight the world’s toughest cyber crimes.”

To reunion or not to reunion? That is the question for James Van Der Beek in the 'Don't Trust the B--- in Apt. 23' premiere

Any actor who has appeared on a successful, well-loved ensemble show has one question that haunts him forever after the series finale: “When are you guys going to get together for a reunion?” The season 2 premiere of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 takes that question head-on.

In the kick-off to the show’s sophomore season, which airs tonight, James Van Der Beek, played by James Van Der Beek, debates whether or not to pursue a reunion show for the cast of the turn-of-the-millennium teen drama that made him a star, Dawson’s Creek.

Will 'Don't Trust the B--- in Apt. 23' feature a 'Dawson's Creek' reunion? -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

The bitch is back. Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 returns to TV next week to follow up its short seven-episode first season, and Chloe (Krysten Ritter) is up to her mean schemes again, with James Van Der Beek, played by James Van Der Beek, still at her side.

The second season kicks off with an episode all about the attempts to put together a cast reunion for the show that made Van Der Beek famous, Dawson’s Creek.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Frankie Muniz to guest on 'Don't Trust the B--- in Apt. 23' -- EXCLUSIVE

James Van Der Beek won’t be the only TV star playing himself on the season 2 premiere of ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23: EW has learned that Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Frankie Muniz will pop up in the roles of Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Frankie Muniz, respectively. READ FULL STORY

'Beek Sneak of the Week': James Van Der Beek plays professor on 'Apt. 23' -- VIDEO


Whether you unabashedly love Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23 or think ABC’s show could use a bit of tweaking, one thing’s for certain: James Van Der Beek is killing it in a role he was born to play. The boy whose ugly cry launched a thousand memes has finally grown into his face… and he’s proving himself to be both a great sport and a crack comic actor.

Case in point: This “Beek Sneak of the Week,” in which the actor heads to NYU to guest-teach a class. Though he’s decked out in a suit, a posh bow tie, and glasses that almost certainly contain prescription-free lenses, the assembled undergraduates have no interest in hearing James talk about Hamlet. Instead, they goad their celebrity prof into performing a seminal monologue from Dawson’s Creek — and Van Der Beek eventually complies, slipping on Dawson’s painfully sincere skin and delivering a few of the lines that made him famous. Cue Paula Cole.

Check out the scene for yourself below; Apt. 23‘s second episode airs tomorrow at 9:30. Be there, or be Abby Morgan. And we all know what happens to Abby Morgan. READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Is Kim a 'Survivor' all-time great? Ousted Jay weighs in. Plus: Why we love 'Apt. 23' and 'Girls'

She may not have the flirting skills of Parvati, the humor of Cirie, or the athletic toughness of Stephenie, but Kim Spradlin is certainly making a case to be considered one of the best female contestants to ever play Survivor. There’s a lot of game left, but her mastery and manipulation has been pretty darn impressive so far. On this week’s edition of the InsideTV Podcast, Jessica Shaw and I dissect Kim’s game and whether she should be considered a future all-star. Then, ousted Jay Byars calls in to offer his take, as well as explaining whether those million dollar chicken wings were really worth it. Why’d he vote off Mike? Why’d he tattle on Troyzan’s plan to oust Kim? And why didn’t he bring his bag to Tribal Council? The male model explains all of that and more! READ FULL STORY

James Van Der Beek on playing himself in the new sitcom 'Don't Trust the B--- in Apartment 23' and his 'Dawson's Creek' past

The Beek from the Creek is back! James Van Der Beek, who for six seasons played the wavy-haired Dawson Leary on The WB’s phenom Dawson’s Creek, is back on television and playing a role perfect for him: himself. Following a series of self-spoofing spots on the comedy website Funny or Die and in Ke$ha’s “Blow” music video, the 35-year-old actor has a new scene-stealing role as James Van Der Beek — ­albeit a smarmy, douche-bag version of James Van Der Beek — on ABC’s slightly twisted sitcom Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 (debuting April 11 at 9:30 p.m.). The ­comedy focuses on naive New York newcomer June (Dreama Walker), who moves in with the possibly sociopathic Chloe (Krysten ­Ritter), whose ex-boyfriend/best pal just happens to be James Van Der Beek. The Apartment 23 incarnation of the Beek is a womanizer who ­seduces fans to the strains of Creek’s “I Don’t Want to Wait” theme song and launches his own line of jeans with the slogan “Put your cheeks in a Beek.”

“I love doing it,” says the actor. “I love the ego assassination that comes with it. It’s just so healthy and so good for me.” EW talked to Van Der Beek about his Creek castmates, whether he would do a Creek reunion, and what it was like working with Ke$ha and some very unlucky unicorns.
