Joshua Jackson talks "Dawson's Creek" reunion

The quartet of former "Dawson's Creek" stars -- Joshua Jackson, Katie Holmes, James Van Der Beek and Michelle Williams -- have been teasing fans of the former WB teen drama with the possibility of a reunion for a while.

Former nay-sayer Joshua Jackson, who played Pacey on the show, recently told The Hollywood Reporter that a "Dawson's Creek" reunion is still a possibility, even if it's not a strong one. "Well, we killed the show so I don't think that's ever going to happen," Jackson told THR. "Never say never. If I'm out of work for enough years, absolutely. We'll be old and gray and nasty by the time (that happens)."

Jackson told The Guardian in June that "'Dawson's Creek' was [his] college experience" and in 2010, the "Fringe" star held Pacey-Con, a "Dawson's Creek" alternative to Comic-Con.

But around that same time, Jackson told MTV, "Pacey's done his time, though. I want first billing! I'm done with this 'Dawson's Creek' bull----."

With Jackson's new attitude and "Dawson's Creek's" own Joey Potter, Katie Holmes, ending her marriage with Tom Cruise, a reunion could be gaining momentum.

Holmes wanted to a do a "Dawson's Creek" reunion, but according to Us Weekly, Cruise nixed the idea. A source told the magazine that Holmes wanted to reunite with her former co-stars to have "fun" and "reconnect with her fans," but Cruise vetoed the plan and urged Holmes to leave the past in the past.

While promoting his new ABC series "Don't Trust The B---- in Apartment 23" in April, Dawson himself James Van Der Beek told Kelly Ripa that while he was totally up for a "Dawson's Creek' reunion, there weren't any concrete plans for the project.

"I feel like this is the number one question that we get asked. Nobody's producing it, nobody's writing it, it's just something that comes in press," he said.

But Van Der Beek told The Huffington Post he'd love to have some of his former "Creek" mates show up on his new series.

"I would love that," he said. "There aren't any in Season 1 so it would have to be Season 2. Knock wood ... I would love that. I think it'd be great." "Don't Trust the B----" returns to ABC this fall.

Meanwhile, Michelle Williams, who played Jen on The WB series, has said that she would happily participate in a reunion. "I've always said, I'm totally up for reunion tours, reunion shows, so we can do that," Williams told Vulture.

With the key parties seemingly on board, could we eventually see a return to Capeside?
