Van Der Beek has struggled to escape being Dawson ever since that show ended. He reinvented himself the past couple of year's starting with this clip about the creation of www.jamesvandermemes.com
He also had a show starring supporting role as "himself" on Apartment 23.
There is also a great series of clips on fuunyordie.com inc one with him willing to be a "not nice guy" for hire where he is trying to make up for years as being the sensitive Dawson by being a jerk for hire so guys can look better in comparison for their girlfriends.
And with Father's Day approaching what dad won't want a pair of DILF khakis.
His reinvention is along the lines of Neil Patrick Harris. Vanderbeek also has a twitter feed which can be a good read- though I haven't actually read it much.
