Dawson's back! All hail Dawson!
James Van Der Beek — alias: Dawson Leery — will be popping by "Ugly Betty" sometime in this upcoming season, one in a line of guest stars that will also include Gina Gershon and, it's rumored, Victoria Beckham.
What's he doing at Mode?
According to Kristin at E!, Van Der Beek will be playing the owner of fashion company Atlantic Attire. He wants to do business with Mode — but he has some problems with Alexis having had a sex change.
Will there be more Dawson in our TV future?
It's unclear. Van Der Beek was set to star in "Football Wives," ABC's adaptation of the British series "Footballers' Wives," but the network decided to pass. Maybe his "Ugly Betty" appearance is a sign that ABC wants to keep him close by. Hey, a "Dawson's Creek" fan can dream.
