That’s why he doesn’t believe in Dawson’s Creek reunion
Joshua Jackson became a star in the late 1990s thanks to Dawson’s Creek. However, he doesn’t believe in a series reunion à la “Friends”.
Actor Joshua Jackson (43, “Fringe – border cases of the FBI”) became known worldwide for his role in the successful teen series “Dawson’s Creek” from the late 1990s. In an interview with the British newspaper “The Guardian” the Canadian now reveals that he doesn’t believe in a series reunion based on the “Friends” model – and why.
“Cracking backs” could “shock” the audience
The reason is simply the advanced age of the “Dawson’s Creek” actors. If you were to sit him, James Van Der Beek (44) and Co. today, in their mid-forties, “with our backs cracking, people could be shocked,” believes the 43-year-old. “Nobody has to hear Pacey grunt when they get up from the chair,” he jokes, alluding to his series character Pacey Witter.
In the case of the “Friends” actors, who returned to the locations of the cult series for a special broadcast on the streaming service HBO Max this year, however, it was “less shocking” to “see them today”. Why? Jennifer Aniston (52), Matthew Perry (52) and the four other “Friends” were simply grown up when they became famous with the series, explains Jackson.
“Dawson’s Creek” also starred James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams
“Dawson’s Creek” flickered on TV screens in a total of six seasons between 1998 and 2003. The series is all about a group of young people who grow up in the fictional port city of Capeside in the US state of Massachusetts and experience ups and downs together. In addition to Joshua Jackson and James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes (42, “Batman Begins”) and Michelle Willams (40, “Venom”) starred in the lead roles.
