Dawson Gets a Job

Former 'Dawson's Creek' star James Van Der Beek finally got himself a gig. Beek has been lined up to star in the forthcoming series of 'Ugly Betty'.

Beek will join a long list of celebrity guest stars in the show, including Victoria Beckham and Salma Hayek. Van Der Beek will star as the owner of a fashion house who is troubled by transsexual Mode magazine co-editor Alexis Meade.

A source tells E! Online, "James Van Der Beek is playing the owner of Atlantic Attire. "Apparently, he's scheduled to do business with Mode, but he has problems with Alexis being a transsexual."

Where did this guy disappear to? Has he had any gigs since 'Dawson's Creek'? This is the first I've heard about him in ages.
