The upcoming FOX comedy pilot "Don't Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23" has nabbed a prime celebrity guest star: An artist so famous that no first name is even necessary when introducing him - Van Der Beek. The former "Dawson's Creek" star is going to be playing himself in the kind of self-aware cameo that's all the rage these days thanks to Neil Patrick Harris in the Harold & Kumar movies. Here's what the inappropriately titled show is all about:
"[The show] centers on June (Dreama Walker), an  earnest, honest, optimistic girl from the heartland who is forced to move in with Chloe (Krysten Ritter), a sexy, unstable New York City party girl who has the morals of a pirate. Van Der Beek will play Chloe's best friend James Van Der Beek."

Obvious fiction. Everyone knows that James Van Der Beek's best friend is James Van Der Beek. (via Deadline)
