‘Dawson’s Creek’ Scribe Calls Katie Holmes, Van Der Beek “Monstrous Actors”

A former ‘Dawson’s Creek’ show runner has called out the show’s now famous stars – James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams.

“The experience was miserable,” writer Tom Kapinos said at the Los Angeles Times Emmy screening series about his time on the show. “But it was a four-year boot camp. It was like going to TV grad school and learning how to run a television show. Anybody on that show who could make a decision was allowed to run it at some point. I inherited the very awkward college years, and I almost ran the show into the ground. But I learned everything that I needed to know about how to run a show.”

When specifically made his experiences on the set so challenging? “It was the four monstrous actors at the core of it,” He said, adding “They were very young, and they got very famous, and they made life miserable for any writer or producer on the show.”

The writer was at the screening to discuss his show ‘Californication’.

Why would a writer air out the dirty laundry of the series that made him a hot commodity? Well, with the mega hit ‘Californication’ under his belt, Kapinos really is now powerful enough to tell the truth and not get burned back.

Just don’t expect Katie or James to come begging for a guest stint alongside David Duchovny any time soon…
