Dawson’s Creek cast reunites for its 20th anniversary on this week’s EW cover

OMG! Okay I will admit to total fangirling when I saw that Entertainment Weekly got our favorite Capeside residents back together for a reunion!

You no longer have to wait. For the first time since the 2003 finale, the cast of one of the most iconic, beloved, and meme-worthy teen dramas ever, Dawson’s Creek, has reunited, thanks to Entertainment Weekly. “I think we’ve all sort of seen each other over the years, but not everybody all together,” says Katie Holmes. “And never for long enough.” Adds creator Kevin Williamson (Scream), “I run into James and Josh, Katie, Michelle, and I just get a big smile on my face. It’s just a very, very special time in my life.”

The cast — Holmes (Joey Potter), James Van Der Beek (Dawson Leery), Joshua Jackson (Pacey Witter), Michelle Williams (Jen Lindley), Busy Phillips (Audrey Liddell), Kerr Smith (Jack McPhee), Meredith Monroe (Andie McPhee), and Mary Beth Peil (Evelyn “Grams” Ryan) — sat down for EW’s cover story and video reunion, streaming now on PeopleTV.com or through the PeopleTV app, on March 12 in New York City. Looking back, Van Der Beek recalls the time during season 4 when he got lost trying to show his parents the Leery house in Wilmington, N.C., which stood in for fictional Capeside. That small-town location bonded this cast more than your typical television series. “It was like growing up together,” remembers Monroe. “I felt like I was so grateful that it was shooting in Wilmington. We all got to really connect in a way that I don’t think we would have had we been in New York or L.A.”

The series, which ran on The WB from 1998 to 2003 and is now streaming in its entirety on Hulu, was both a sweet nod to coming-of-age stories and a bold and sometimes controversial addition to the teen genre. Budding filmmaker Dawson, goofy troublemaker Pacey, moody tomboy Joey, and reformed-ish bad girl Jen all discover the joy and (mostly) pain of first love as they date and break up and date and break up… and date and break up, all with the titular body of water as a soothing backdrop. Love triangles and rectangles are nothing new, but Creek’s delivery of these topics was shockingly fresh. These pubescent pals weren’t going to the Peach Pit for shakes — they were talking about masturbating to Katie Couric and having affairs with their teachers. And they spoke about their hormonal escapades (or lack thereof) in smart, Aaron Sorkin-esque dialogue. Says John Wesley Shipp, who played Dawson’s father, Mitch: “I remember a big star who shall remain nameless said to Kevin, ‘Young people don’t talk like that.’ Kevin said, ‘Well, maybe not, but they’d like to.’ We had a feeling that we were pioneering a different way of telling stories about young people.” Adds Jackson, “Kevin never insulted the audience and never insulted [the actors] by dumbing us down. I loved that part.”

And the show’s young stars, especially the main four leads, all became overnight teen icons. “I was actually with James when he signed his first autograph,” remembers Mary-Margaret Humes, who played Dawson’s mother, Gail. “My husband and I had taken James up to Universal City in L.A. to watch a movie. This girl came up to James and said, ‘Excuse me, aren’t you that guy on Dawson’s Creek? May I have your autograph?’ He signed it and said, ‘Oh my God, Mary-Margaret, that was my first!’ And, of course, my thought was ‘Oh, honey, hang on.’”

But it’s not surprising to see such passionate fan reactions. Creek was a series that wore its heart on its sleeve and spoke to a generation. “It was really wholesome and it was really Americana,” says Greg Berlanti (Riverdale), who began his career on season 2 and took over showrunner duties in season 3. “I think if people want a perfect snapshot of what it was like to come of age in the ’90s and be a young person in that moment, Dawson’s will always be a time capsule of that.” Adds Williams: “I loved that we were able to get in there in those formative years for people. That’s why people, I think, are so connected to it. When something affects you while you were growing up, it kind of stays in there forever. When you’re so permeable and open and trying to figure out who you are and what’s going on, whatever reaches you in those moments really becomes part of you.”

Katie Holmes Lets Seth Green Suck Her Toes in New Dear Dictator Clip

Katie Holmes put her foot in someone else’s mouth in her latest film role.

The 39-year-old actress plays a dental assistant named Darlene with a fondness for having her feet licked in the new comedy Dear Dictator. And her boss Dr. Charles Seaver, played by Seth Green, is a man with a foot fetish.

In a clip from the film, Dr. Charles can be seen sucking on Darlene’s toes — telling her that his wife, “won’t let me do this for her. She thinks it’s strange.”

“She’s strange!” Darlene says, dressed in yellow scrubs and sprawled on the dental bench before taking out her phone to film the scene.

Of course, that’s just some of the silliness fans can expect in Dear Dictator.

The film, directed by Lisa Addario and Joe Syracuse, tells the story of a British-Caribbean dictator (Michael Caine) who flees his island nation for refuge in America with his pen pal, Darlene’s daughter Tatiana (Odeya Rush). There, he teaches Tatiana how to start her own revolution in high school and overthrow the “mean girls” plaguing the hallways.

Dear Dictator, which also stars Jason Biggs, is in theaters and on video on demand now.

Katie Holmes Could Probably Definitely Kick Your Ass

Everyone’s favorite Dawson’s Creek star is newly into weight lifting and boxing.

I’d heard the rumors: Katie Holmes some serious biceps. I needed proof.

We’re at a swank lounge in NYC’s Mandarin Oriental hotel, where expensively groomed guests are sipping artisan cocktails. Katie, clutching her ever-present paper coffee cup, is more casual: jeans, a frilly denim shirt, sneakers. I decide to give it a shot and obnoxiously ask her to flex for me.

She is apologetic, saying, “I haven’t worked out for awhile.” But then she pulls up her sleeve and displays the startling combination of litheness and sinew she’s developed while prepping for a new role—an action-thriller, still under wraps, in which she plays an ex-marine. (It’s been a busy year, including the current Dear Dictator with Michael Caine and Ocean’s Eight, coming out this summer.)

Katie has called her new character a “warrior” in the press, and considering her life over the past few years, you get the feeling that concept personally resonates. I first interviewed Katie in 2003, right at the end of Dawson’s Creek, and the woman before me today is not far removed from that girl of 15 years ago: sunny, wry, and ebullient, with the melting brunette beauty that inspired makeup guru Bobbi Brown to call her “the modern-day Ali MacGraw.”

Could that glow have something to do with her reported relationship with actor Jamie Foxx?

Whatever the source, these days Katie is reveling in the strength of her upcoming role, having snipped her long, dark locks into a pixie and started lifting weights to develop her upper body. “Which I’ve never wanted to do,” she laughs. “But I wanted to be authentic to a person who trained in the military. Which means someone who wasn’t always paying attention to the mirror and who was in shape not for vanity, but because that’s what her job called for.”

So the new tagline is “Katie Holmes kicks ass”? It doesn’t sound as natural as “Katie Holmes bakes cookies” or even “Katie Holmes has a stuffed animal collection” (“I still love stuffed animals,” she admits). But she’s working on it.

And it is work. She would be lying if she told you that exercise is dear to her heart. Here is The Stars Are Just Like Us, Exercise Edition: Katie Holmes doesn’t really love to work out just for the sake of working out. (She also doesn’t love copping to that fact—but we relate there, too.) She does have a lot to live up to in that department.

Katherine Noelle Holmes grew up in Toledo, Ohio, the youngest of five kids in a family of jocks; she spent her youth with crayons and paper, drawing in drafty gyms while she cheered on her siblings in basketball. She sang and danced her way through high school.

But when her dad decided, at 45, to run the Boston Marathon for the first time, with her older brother, she paid attention. “I was 13 or 14, and I was like, ‘Wow.’ That had a huge impact.” So much so that in her twenties, Katie trained for and ran the New York City Marathon. “I thought, My gosh, I want to do that. If they can do it, I’m not gonna let them have that over me.”

She hasn’t felt the need to repeat the feat, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t cool. “It was incredible, going through all the different boroughs. You feel like you’re part of a pack, and you’re inspired by other people—and the people in wheelchairs. But it’s also. . .I remember hitting mile 20 and just crying, like, ‘There’s no way—I can’t do six more miles.’ But I did.”

Nowadays, working out is usually a group activity—classes, especially SoulCycle—”because I like that sense of community,” Katie explains. Being surrounded by other people adds an element of inspiration, “like, if she can do it, I can do it too.”

Katie Holmes’ Go-To Fast Food Order Is a Secret-Menu Favorite

Katie shares her love of Chipotle with People.com.

As a New Yorker, Katie Holmes has established a nice balance between ordering take-out and cooking dinner at home.

“I prefer to cook but it just depends on the day,” she told PEOPLE on Tuesday at an event for Num Noms. “If I’m not home in time [I’ll order in].”

If she’s on the go, Holmes—who helped the kids toy company launch Snackables, their new line of food-themed collectibles—says her go-to fast food is Chipotle. “I usually get a cheese quesadilla,” she said.

But the Mexican indulgence—which was only recently added to the restaurant’s kid’s menu but has been a mainstay on their “secret menu” for those in the know for while—is not an every day occurrence. “I do not eat whatever I want. I try to eat healthy. I try to eat my veggies every day,” said Holmes, who added that she often starts her day with a homemade smoothie.

At home, the former Dawson’s Creek alum also keeps pantry staples like “cereal, canned soup, pasta, and tomato sauce” so she can whip up dinner on the fly but more so, she says, “I prefer it when my friends cook”—namely, her pal fashion designer Zac Posen.

“I love what he cooks,” she says of Posen, who had Holmes model his entire new collection in place of a traditional NYFW show last month. “It’s a whole different experience.”

The actress recently opened up about overhauling her lifestyle, particularly her workout routine, in order to prep for her role as an ex-Marine in the upcoming action-thriller The Doorman.

“I was a five-pound weight person, and now I can do 15, 20,” she told Women’s Health for their April cover story. “And I’ve been doing a lot of boxing, which I had never done before. It’s thrilling. You can get out the stress of the day. I just go in there and think of all the mundane things that bother me. Traffic! I put off all my calls till after boxing, because it puts me in a much calmer place.”

“This was the only one I tried on,” explained Holmes, who has been close friends with Posen for years. “I love this dress because of the care that is taken into create something like this. Every ruffle is its own pattern, and there’s so much thought and detail in it. It’s really an honor to wear it.”

Also sporting a Zac Posen gown at the fete was Amy Schumer, who thoroughly entertained Holmes, judging by her Instagram.
