Hollywood.com chatted with the Tampa native, who said she was “completely robbed as a child” and forbidden from watching Dawson’s Creek, the ultimate teen melodrama of the last 20 years. Now, Dawson (a.k.a. James Van Der Beek) is back and better than ever, playing a douchey version of himself, who uses his Creek claim to fame to score chicks on ABC’s new comedy Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23. And yes, “I Don’t Want to Wait” will rear its ugly, contagious head at least a few times.
Naturally, Walker, who never got a chance to fawn over Dawson and Joey’s will-they-won’t-they relationship, stars alongside James as the super cute and super innocent June, who’s pulled into the titular B—‘s sadistic world after some untimely New York misfortune. The “soulless” Chloe (Krysten Ritter) must show June how to survive in the Big Apple and Van Der Beek’s drop-ins are the anti-Dawson.
