With the exception of Varsity Blues, James Van Der Beek and his towering, Exeter-like forehead slipped into obscurity following his role as Dawson on “Dawson’s Creek.” Now, the Internet only remembers him for his blubbering bitchface and “I don’t want. Your life.”
All of that has changed with the existence of James Van Der Memes, a single-serving Tumblr blog comprised entirely of animated GIFs of Van Der Beek emoting. It’s fantastic. It shows that he’s able to poke fun at his past while also displaying more range than he ever showed on “Dawson.” And something tells me I’ll be using that “Oh no you dih’n’t!” GIF sometime in the very near future. Probably in regard to TLC programming.
