Michelle Williams, the indie sweetheart who once shyed away from talking about her days on Dawson’s Creek, is apparently now “totally up” for a Dawson’s Creek Reunion.
At the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of her film Take This Waltz, the actress talked a bit about her glory days on the creek, and how if all engines are go she’s not opposed to having a Dawson’s Creek reunion with her old pals, despite the fact that her character Jen Lindley died in the series finale.
Williams’ comments came around when the actress was reminded that old costar James Van Der Beek, who played Dawson, was up for it. The actress told Vulture, “He has my email! He has my home phone and my cell phone, so we talk. [James] could totally ask! I’ve always said, I’m totally up for reunion tours, reunion shows, so we can do that.”
Joshua Jackson, who played Pacey on the show told GLAAD Media that it would never happen because of Williams’ character’s untimely death, saying, “You can’t do it because Michelle/Jen is dead.” However, he later on suggested that maybe they can skirt around the issue with a few old television tricks, particularly by stealing a page from Dallas, “I’m OK with that,” Jackson laughed. “We can start with Dawson in a shower. That would be funny.”
The missing link would be Katie Holmes, who rounds out the fab four, and hasn’t had much of a career like her fellow Capeside Creekers. However, Holmes said she was up for a Creek reunion as well, telling Good Morning Americain the fall, “I had so much fun working on that show and I loved everyone so much and I think about it with such fond memories.”
As for getting around Jen Lindley’s death? Michelle Williams told Ryan Seacrest that she has a few ideas up her sleeve, “I would have to come back as a ghost.”
