Part of the hilarity of ABC's "Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23" is that James Van Der Beek plays an exaggerated version of himself. Well the Beek from the 'Creek' is going to have some competition this season when other stars pop up on the new comedy.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Frankie Muniz and Busy Philipps are all set to appear as themselves in season two of "Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23." According to Entertainment Weekly, the three actors are expected to guest star in the season premiere when Van Der Beek tries to pull together a "Dawson's Creek" reunion.
While attempting to pull off reunion, the 'Creek' heartthrob runs into former teen stars Gosselaar and Muniz. Mark-Paul Gosselaar is now the star of TNT's "Franklin & Bash," but came into the spotlight with "Saved By The Bell." Frankie Muniz has kept a relatively low profile since starring in "Malcom in the Middle." He recently guest starred on ABC's "Last Man Standing."
Busy Philipps on the other hand has had her plate full co-starring alongside Courtney Cox on "Cougar Town." As of now, it looks like Philipps will be the only "Dawson's Creek" actor to take part in the reunion. Philipps formerly starred alongside Van Der Beek as Audrey Liddell. Audrey had been Joey's college roommate, and eventually a love interest for Pacey.
"Apt. 23" has been teasing their season premiere since Tom Cruise and Kate Holmes split. The creator and stars hope to rope in other "Dawson Creek" alum, including Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson and of course the newly single Katie Holmes.
Although no other former "Creek" stars have signed on to guest star, "Apt. 23" creator Nahnatchka Khan already has some ideas if Holmes says yes to the reunion. Khan revealed to TVGuide that she could see Holmes as a "heightened version of herself."
"In my mind, I think it would be really funny if there is some sort of bad blood between her and James that's not really been addressed," explained Khan. "Maybe she comes because something bad happens to James and she comes to celebrate. For Example, if she thinks it's his funeral and she shows up in a red dress with champagne, like, 'Ding dong, the Beek is dead!'"
Are you excited for any of the season two guest stars on "Don't Trust the B---- In Apt. 23?"
