James Van Der Beek: 'Don't Trust The Bitch' Star

Get excited, "Dawson's Creek" devotees: your boy is back.

James Van Der Beek, the star of the late '90s and early 2000's teenage soap opera, has been cast in the pilot for the ABC show "Don't Trust The B**ch," TVLine.com reports. He would play an altered version of himself who is the best friend of the show's star Chloe, to be played by Krysten Ritter.

Van Der Beek had a flourishing film career while the show aired, with hits such as "Varsity Blues," "Texas Rangers," "American Psycho," and "The Rules of Attraction." Since then, he's had a bit of a harder time, though he's returned to the teen drama world on the CW show "One Tree Hill."
