James Van Der Beek is returning to television!

Hey, if Pacey can do it, why can't Dawson? James Van Der Beek, he of Dawson's Creek fame, is following in the footsteps of Fringe's Joshua Jackson and rejoining the medium that made him sort-of famous in the first place: television. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Van Der Beek has been cast in Fox's Eva Adams, which is set to shoot a pilot sometime in the near future.

Eva Adams, from Journeyman creator Kevin Falls and adapted from an Argentinian show, is a gender-swapping dramedy set in a sports agency. The main character Adam, who has yet to be cast, plays a fast-talking womanizing agent who gets turned into a hot chick after a witch's spell tries to show him what it's like to be on the other side. Van Der Beek will play a friend and coworker of Adam (or whatever his femme name becomes... perhaps Eva?).

Also cast in the show is David Denman, better known as Roy from NBC's The Office. He'll play another agent just getting over a messy divorce.

The triumph return of James Van Der Beek! Who has the better chance at making it in TV now, James Van Der Beek or Joshua Jackson? My money's on JJ.
