You know you've made it when your TV show is made into porn, right? That's certainly how James Van Der Beek saw it during his "Dawson's Creek" days.

While chatting with Vulture about his "Power Rangers" "deboot," the "Dawson's Creek" star brought up a fond memory from his days on the show.

"I remember when I was doing 'Rules of Attraction,' and the hair and makeup department got me a copy of the 'Dawson's Crack' porn movie as a gag gift. It was on VHS, that's how long ago that was, and I thought it was hilarious," Van Der Beek explained.

"I couldn't wait to bring it back and show everybody in North Carolina and say, 'We've made it! Look at us. They've made a porno out of us,'" he continued. "This was right after 9/11, and I get flagged by security, and somebody opened up the suitcase, and there’s a gay porno right on top. Not just any gay porno, but one based on the show that I was on. Which is kind of excellent."

Thirteen years later, 38-year-old Van Der Beek is starring in "CSI: Cyber" and has three kids, but he certainly isn't ashamed of that porn incident -- he tweeted about it after his interview.
