The Return of James Van Der Beek

Just when it looked like his career was up Dawson’s creek without a paddle, James Van Der Beek is getting a second chance at being a professional actor.

James Van Der Beek has signed onto a lead role with the Fox pilot Eva Adams.

The hour-long project revolves around Adam, a self-centred and sexist sports agent who gets a healthy dose of comeuppance when a witch’s spell turns him into a woman. Now, he must deal with the same kind of shabby treatment he used to dole out.

Van Der Beek will play Connor, a former frat boy who is a colleague and good friend of Adam’s.

David Denman, who played Pam’s ex-fiance Roy on “The Office,” has also joined the cast. He will play Paul, a still-recovering divorcee and single dad who works at the sports firm alongside Adam and Connor.

Adam/Eva has yet to be cast.

And, like everything on American TV these days, we stole the idea from another country … the show is based on the hit Argentinean telenovela Lalola.

Who should they cast as the sexist man who gets turned into a woman???
