HollyMoms, I dare you not to laugh out loud when you watch the former Dawson Creek star’s Funny or Die video!
It’s nice to see that James Van Der Beek is comfortable poking fun at himself. The 33-year-old new father of daughter, Olivia, is the latest celebrity to shoot a video for comedy website Funny or Die. In this laugh-out-loud video for a website called Vandermemes, the actor shows off his vast emotional range, because of the popularity of a viral clip of him crying during his Dawson’s Creek days.
“If you’re under the age of 20, odds are good you know me best from a five-second clip of me crying circulating on the internet,” he says, adding that what he realized is that “the internet is really demanding more intense emotional close-ups of my face.”
The funny father goes on to flex his acting chops, ranging from happy super-smiley face, to an eye roll which he says is “to go with the latest Lindsey Lohan story.” He also manages a super-sad sobbing face as well as an ecstatic O-face “that’s for you ladies,” he adds.
Go ahead and take a few minutes to laugh your cares away, HollyMoms. Enjoy!
