It's been 11 years since "Dawson's Creek" ended, but as far as fans are concerned, James Van Der Beek will always be Dawson Leery.
Though he has no problem playing along -- his entire character in 2012's "Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23" parodied the public's obsession with Van Der Beek as Dawson -- for Van Der Beek, the Capeside days are long behind him.
“It just seems like something so far away. It seems like another lifetime," Van Der Beek said on HuffPost Live on Tuesday.
He's not complaining about his adolescent fame, though. "Once I could make money making fun of it, that made it a lot easier," Van Der Beek joked.
