Sure, James Van Der Beek had his breakout role on a show called the teen drama Dawson's Creek, but since then, the 40-year-old actor -- as well as several of his co-stars -- has gone on to have a prolific career -- something that didn't exactly come across during two interviewers' introduction of Van Der Beek on the British talk show This Morning.
"Almost 20 years on, Katie Holmes is a leading Hollywood actress, she famously married Tom Cruise, Michelle Williams, you see four Oscar nominations ... Joshua Jackson plays the jilted husband in the Golden Globe-winning drama, The Affair," the interviewers remark. "But what happened to the main man himself, Mr. James Van Der Beek?"
And after obliging the bit of nostalgia, Van Deer Beek did get a chance to talk about his upcoming Sky 1 comedy, Carter's Get Rich, about a teenager who develops a dating app and sells it to a shameless wealthy investor played by Van Der Beek.
Describing his character on the new show as a "really obnoxious American billionaire," Van Der Beek admitted, "the most fun characters to play, I find, are the ones who have zero shame."
Carter's Get Rich is coming soon to the British TV channel.
