Van Der Beek back creekside in North Carolina

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- James Van Der Beek is back at the creekside.

Five years after his star-making turn as the center of "Dawson's Creek" came to an end, Van Der Beek has returned to a Wilmington sound stage. He is working with some of his former crew colleagues for a guest appearance on the CW's teen drama "One Tree Hill."

The episode airs Monday night.

Van Der Beek has tried to distance himself from his days as Dawson Leery, a film-crazed teen with aspirations of becoming a director. He returned to North Carolina to play a director on "One Tree Hill" who is interested in turning a book written by Chad Michael Murray's character into a film.

Van Der Beek will appear in three episodes, with the rest airing in January after the show returns from a holiday break.
