Dawson's Creek Show Runner Disses Katie Holmes, Josh Jackson, Michelle Williams, James van der Beek

Dawson's Creek Show Runner Disses Cast — Mean or Funny?

It's been six years since Dawson's Creek was on the air, and the four main stars — Katie Holmes, Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson, and James van der Beek — have come a long way in their careers and grown up a lot. Yesterday, Tom Kapinos, the former show runner for the series who now works on Californication, had not-so-nice things to say about his experience on Dawson's, saying among other things, "It was the four monstrous actors at the core of it." It's pretty much ancient history, and there's one Oscar nominee among them, so what do you think about Kapinos's quote — mean or funny?

I'm from the area where Dawson's Creek was filmed, and I have to say, all four stars made it pretty clear they felt they were entitled to major movie roles as soon as the show succeeded--in all their press interviews they seemed to endlessly complain of "missed opportunities" because the show filmed so far from LA. Clearly though, none of them have worked all that much since the show ended. Of the four, Williams seems the most successful as an actor, but only in low-profile indie roles, with the exception of Brokeback Mountain. I agree with whomever said Katie Holmes & Michelle Williams are more famous for their spouses than their films; Van Der Beek and Jackson, meanwhile, are totally off the radar. So much for "missed opportunities"!

Lovely lady and a sweetheart. Californication wont even last long like DC. Why should Katie smile? she's constantly followed everywhere and paps are breaking privacy shooting her in hotel windows and even at their home backyard.

The young woman on the show surely didn't have that non-talented diva-air about them and I haven't heard any bashing about the boys either. Maybe there is some truth to it, at least in this person's own perception, but either way it is a no-no to go there now. Maybe he's just one of those persons who blurt things out and regret them later,especially if they are fueled with bitterness. And btw, I like Dawson's Creek.

i think that it's mean spirited . after all these years - really what do you have to gain from saying things like that. really? they were all young, and who knows if there's even any truth to it all. they all seem like they were really nice and down to earth at the time.

well, of course 4 teenage/early 20's actors on a very popular and successful TV show would be annoying to work with!!! that should be a given. the way he said it definitely sounded bitter. until i read that eonline story, i didn't know he was responsible for the crappy college years. so now, i'd say yes, he is DEFINITELY bitter about something.

Katie looks awful. What's going on with her? Dragenfly75, two words: Tom Cruise. That's what is going on with her.

Michelle Williams never threatened to sue her fansite. That rumor was cleared up long ago by the former site's owner who explained that it was her own personal decision to close the site. She expressed a lot of regret that a story like that even got started. I also agree the only reason for this guy to have even mentioned the cast is probably because of the levels of fame reached.

wow annonymous 31, did you work on the set.....and obviously know them personally, i think its hilarious how bitter and slightly jealous he sounds, what's the point of saying this now? if they were all so terrible they would all have disapeared in to oblivion by now, and as i can recall, michelle has lots of films under her belt, as does katie as well as being on broadway which is a sign she is competent..... he seems a bit of a prat to me.

Katie does look depressed. She's always wearing black or gray or both. I wonder if she regrets getting married to a crazy man.

Must be slow news and many news and blogs are using Katie as a headliner. The guy must be enjoying his quickie fame.

Good point. If they were such monsters why hasn't that reputation ever followed them anywhere to any other film set ever?
