James Van Der Beek to Star in ABC Pilot As ... James Van Der Beek

James Van Der BeekJames Van Der Beek has clearly learned to embrace his past.

One the heels of those hilarious Funny or Die videos and the "Why didn't I think of that?" Web venture known as James Van Der Memes comes the news that the former 'Dawson's Creek' actor is set to star in the ABC pilot 'Don't Trust the B*tch in Apt. 23' -- as himself.

According to Vulture, the man formerly known as Dawson Leery will play "a heightened version of himself" a la Neil Patrick Harris in the 'Harold and Kumar' movies and Matt LeBlanc on 'Episodes.'

The fictional Van Der Beek is the BFF of the titular b*tch, Chloe, played by Krysten Ritter. 'The Good Wife' actress Dreama Walker stars as an innocent out-of-towner who moves in with Chloe, whom TV Line hilariously describes as "a sexy, unstable New York City party girl who has the morals of a pirate."

The best part of the whole thing: The role was originally written as Lance Bass.
