ABC may have evicted Apt. 23 but you can’t keep The Beek down.

James Van Der Beek has just been cast in a CBS comedy pilot called Friends with Better Lives.

The project’s been described as a “a group of thirty-something friends who each think the other has it better.” He’ll play Will Stokes, one of two doctors with a gynecology practice. His character is smart, sarcastic and trying to recover from his soon-to-be ex-wife’s infidelity. What do you think? Glad to have Beek (potentially) back in primetime?
