James Van Der Beek has been here before, and fans of the Beek should revisit this post of our old pal Dawson, in which he received his first crowning as Hunk of the Day. Today’s entry is a holding spot for his next Hunk honor, which will come as soon as he shows a little more. We shall put a pin in that for now.
It seems to me that Mr. Van Der Beek is a star in need of a killer sitcom or a raunchy rom-com that showcases his edgy and sultry good looks, as well as his comedic grace. His work on ‘Varsity Blues’ and ‘Dawson’s Creek’, and his thrilling turn in ‘The Rules of Attracton’ showcased his dramatic gravitas, while his hilarious turn on ‘Don’t Trust The B—- in Apartment 23’ illuminates the prowess of a cunning funny guy. I still feel like we haven’t seen his full potential, which makes him an exciting actor to watch – those on the precipice of greatness carry an intrigue and aura of the future to them.
