Kerr Smith has transformed into a silver fox, but he’s still remembering his ‘Creek’ roots — and he’d be down for a Jimmy Fallon-style reunion. However, he does have a few suggestions.
Get a little more than you bargained for, huh Jack McPhee? (Warning, there will be many more Dawson’s Creek puns to come so beware now.) Kerr Smith recently spoke to HollywoodLife.com and revealed that he actually agreed with Katie Holmes‘ recent statement that yes, she would be in for a reunion of Capeside’s gang, which ended 12 years ago. But what about Michelle Williams‘ character Jen?
‘Dawson’s Creek’ Reunion — Kerr Smith Is In
Just to remind you, Katie Holmes AKA Joey Potter recently said she’d be down for a reunion, like Jimmy Fallon staged for the Saved by the Bell cast. And Kerr agrees!
“Jimmy Fallon style, I’d be in for that. That’d be funny!” he told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “I don’t think I’d be down for a reunion, reunion, though. I don’t think any of the others would either. It’s been too long.”
Yes, it has been 12 years, but we have to assume that it’d be a little weird without Jen right? Spoiler alert, Michelle Williams’ character passes away in the finale.
“We could bring her back from the dead or something!” he said. Well, that’s a good point. If that’s the case, I always want Mr. Leery and Abby Morgan too, ok?
The ‘Dawson’s Creek’ Star Who Took On ‘Fifty Shades’
Of course, I also asked Kerr about the character he ended up with — Doug Witter, played by Dylan Neal, since he actually appears in Fifty Shades of Grey. Kerr knew nothing about that, but did have a funny memory of their last scenes together.
“That was fun, I’ll never forget that day!” Kerr said, also adding he wasn’t sure why they were on that “long road.” I reminded him that it was because Sheriff Doug pulled him over for speeding. “He and I had never really been in a scene together. We never really had any interaction. I remember that one day on that long road, by the water. One of the last days of shooting. But yeah, we’re just sitting there like, ‘We gotta do this, don’t we?’ and he’s like ‘Yeah.'” So we’re like ‘Let’s go, let’s do this. Get it over with.'”
PS: this is the scene he was referring to.
Well, I never wanted it to be over with, and I’d love to see Jen back from the dead. Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Are you ready for a reunion? Let us know.
