James Van Der Beek appeared on Live! with Kelly this morning to promote his new show “Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23.”
“I feel like it’s the number one question we all get asked. Nobody’s producing it. Nobody’s writing it. It’s just something that comes up in the press,” said Van Der Beek.
“And Michelle Williams is always like absolutely. I think because her character is dead,” smiled Van Der Beek.
“You look the same,” said co-host Mario Lopez. “Might as well.”
“Would you be up for it though?” inquired Lopez. “Why not,” smiled Van Der Beek.
“I hear congratulations are in order,” said Kelly. “Just had another baby. A boy this time.”
Proud papa Van Der Beek also has a gorgeous little blond, blue-eyed baby girl who’s 19-months-old.
“That’s a great thing to be close in age,” said Mario Lopez. “It will be great eventually I’m told,” laughed Van Der Beek.
He was worried at first about the new arrival of his son because of his daughter Olivia. “She gave no signs whatsoever that she was gonna be cool with another baby in the house,” he said. “If my wife held another baby she’d cry and try to push him out of her arms.”
But luckily Van Der Beek stated, “As soon as her brother was born, she was totally cool with it.”
Van Der Beek is having a lot of fun with his new television series “Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23.”
“We just created this crazy monster out of things that have happened to me. Things that other actors do. It’s just this crazy bizarro version of me that I have so much fun with.”
“They say that the hardest thing for an actor to do is to play themselves. But your playing a much more dialed up version of yourself?” asked Kelly.
“It’s on another dial,” laughed Van Der Beek.
I guess we’ll have to watch the show to see what the young actor is talking about. In the meantime, we’ll be crossing our fingers for a reunion of “Dawson’ Creek.”
“Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23” airs Wednesday’s at 9:30 pm on ABC.
