It's Been 15 Years Since They Left Capeside, So Where's The Cast Of "Dawson's Creek" Now?

- Page 1


Dawson's Creek was a massive hit from the time it first hit  television screens in 1998. It followed the growth of the all-American kid Dawson Leery (played by James Van Der Beek) and his cast of friends as they tried to navigate their lives through their high school years. The show had viewers glued to their television screens for six seasons, but after the show finished, what exactly happened to the stars who had made the previous six years so enjoyable, and what are they up to now?

Let's find out.

1. James Van Der Beek - Dawson Leery


James played the show's lead role and title character, Dawson Leery. He was the soft-boiled egg who the group seemed to center around. Since the show ended James has stayed relatively busy as an actor. He went on to star in the 90s football drama Varsity Blues, and he has also had some TV roles in How I Met Your Mother, Ugly Betty, CSI: Cyber, and Criminal Minds.

2. Katie Holmes - Joey Potter

Today Show

After the success of Dawson's Creek, Katie had some major success in the movies, and was really making a name for herself before she got married to Tom Cruise and had her daughter Suri. She made her big screen comeback in Batman Begins, and then went on to portray Jackie Kennedy in The Kennedys and The Kennedys: Decline and Fall. She made her directorial debut in 2016 with All We Had.

3. Joshua Jackson - Pacey Witter


Likely the most prolific cast member (before the show even started), Joshua Jackson didn't see nearly as much success after her was done portraying Pacey Witter. He was actually arrested in 2002 for being drunk on a hockey rink which didn't look good. He has been playing Cole Lockhart in The Affair for a few years, and has appeared in Sky, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Fringe as well.

The 'Dawson's Creek' Cast Reunited And It'll Make You Wish You Could Go Back To Capeside

Dawson's Creek was one of the most iconic shows on television in the 90s. It was basically all of our first glimpses of what teen drama looked like, and even though our lives were nothing like those of Capeside, we sure felt like we were a part of it. Personally, I was always a fan of Joey Potter. She had such an interesting backstory and I felt really bad that she lost her mother. I was always on Team Pacey too, so the fact that they ended up together was everything we wanted. Dawson's career obviously turned out okay and


Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it
