According to a report by TVLine, the twist will stick through for two more episodes. The recent episode, titled “The D in Apartment 23,” is the first of Brian’s three-episode arc which will end on the December 3 episode. On the next episode, this

James Van Der Beek On Learning ‘To Take The Piss Out Of Myself’ — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

James Van Der Beek On Learning ‘To Take The Piss Out Of Myself’ — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast
He may still be best known as the star of seminal 1990s drama “Dawson’s Creek,” but these days James Van Der Beek is more often known for playing … James Van Der Beek. After all, he did star as himself in the critically acclaimed but short lived “Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23.” Now he’s having fun parodying another celebrity, the famed DJ Diplo, in Viceland’s new series “What Would Diplo Do?”

Van Der Beek is not only the star of the show, but he’s also the executive producer and showrunner. He and director Brandon Dermer first had fun with the world famous DJ in the web short “Day in the Life of Diplo,” an over-the top take on what Diplo’s life might be like.

'Grace & Frankie' Writer Sells Bus Accident Rom-Com to Fox

'Tis the season of ambiguous loglines.

Grace & Frankie writer Billy Finnegan has set a project at Fox from 20th Century Fox TV — and while it's not entirely clear what the single cam is about, it's got one hell of an early synopsis: "Girl meets boy, boy very much doesn't notice. Girl meets bus, boy notices … sort of."

Read into that what you will, but it sounds like a romantic comedy about a bus accident. Finnegan is partnering on the project with his former Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 showrunner Nahnatchka Khan, who will serve as executive...

As usual feel free to discuss whether you’re watching along or you’ve seen it all, but please don’t spoil future episodes for anyone in the comments.

So we finally get a look at how Elektra came back from the dead, and it’s fairly grim in addition to being quite slippery. Alexandra is clearly incredibly jazzed to see her in a way that seems a lot more intimate than familial, and that makes me wonder if Elektra’s purpose is less

James Van Der Beek on How ‘Being John Malkovich’ Inspired Him to Get Meta with Spike Jonze

James Van Der Beek on How ‘Being John Malkovich’ Inspired Him to Get Meta with Spike Jonze
James Van Der Beek had already been acting for several years when the movie that would change everything for him was released. “‘Being John Malkovich,’ to me, was the reason to be famous; to get to do something like that,” he told IndieWire. “I remember watching what John Malkovich did in that, I thought, ‘That is the coolest fucking thing I’ve ever seen a famous person do.'”

So when Van Der Beek started working on the new Viceland series “What Would Diplo Do?” with Spike Jonze (who directed the 1999 modern classic), “to be able to pitch him this whole idea and get his take on it was a dream.”

James Van Der Beek Says He Was Surprised Katie Holmes Married Tom Cruise, Spills 'Dawson's Creek' Confessions

James Van Der Beek Says He Was Surprised Katie Holmes Married Tom Cruise, Spills 'Dawson's Creek' Confessions
James Van Der Beek answered just about all the questions that host Andy Cohen posed regarding the actor's days on Dawson's Creek and his beloved co-stars.

During his appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Tuesday night with Kate Upton, Van Der Beek was asked if he was surprised when his on-again, off-again Dawson's Creek love interest, Katie Holmes, married Tom Cruise in 2006, three years after the drama series went off the air. "Yes," the 40-year-old actor confessed without elaborating.

Van Der Beek went into more detail when Cohen inquired as to when he thought Dawson's Creek jumped the shark. "End of season 2 when I had to wear a wire to implicate Joey's father for a drug deal gone bad," he recalled. "Yeah, that seemed like a stretch," Cohen quipped.

Exclusive: James Van Der Beek on Channeling Diplo and Checking Into ‘Room 104’

Exclusive: James Van Der Beek on Channeling Diplo and Checking Into ‘Room 104’
On the new Viceland series What Would Diplo Do?, James Van Der Beek takes on his most unexpected role yet: the Grammy-winning DJ and record producer behind M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” and “Where Are U Now” with Skrillex and Justin Bieber among other international hit songs.

But it should come as no surprise the actor would defy the expectations of audiences who grew up with him on Dawson’s Creek. Van Der Beek has taken on darker roles like The Rules of Attraction and playing a fictionalized version of himself on the short-lived Don’t Trust the B--- in Apartment 23. And playing ridiculous version of Diplo is no different.

“[Fans] have seen me do weird stuff in between,” Van Der Beek says, referring to Dawson’s Creek and more traditional roles like Friends With Better Lives and CSI: Cyber. “I think I’ve prepped them for this moment… they’re going

'What Would Diplo Do?': How James Van Der Beek Turned an Edm Spoof Into a TV Show

'What Would Diplo Do?': How James Van Der Beek Turned an Edm Spoof Into a TV Show
In the macho world of superstar DJs (and irate presidents), Twitter is the battleground, the premier forum for airing grievances about the competition. Case in point: In March of 2016, Diplo – who made $23 million that year, according to Forbes – decided that another producer, Zedd ($24 million) had plagiarized the work of the young Australian beat-maker Flume. So Diplo took aim on social media and let fly: "[You’re] young and rich and a great musician … Use that to your advantage … Don't be such a pompous cornball loser also I fucked your girl."

James Van Der Beek Plays Diplo in Hilarious First Trailer for Mockumentary Series 'What Would Diplo Do?'
James Van Der Beek is taking on a whole new kind of role in Viceland's new mockumentary series about famed Edm producer Diplo.

The CSI: Cyber star plays the real-life DJ in the hilarious new comedy, which asks the question: What Would Diplo Do?

Following the misadventures of a fictionalized caricature of Diplo, What Would Diplo Do? documents the 38-year-old musician's day-to-day life as a world famous sound artist, who also happens to be incredibly dumb.

From trying to get "a new sound" by throwing a broken violin in a blender, to getting caught in a hotel hallways completely naked, to fighting sword-wielding ninjas at a concert for some reason, it looks like What Would Diplo Do? might be the
