John Wesley Shipp

Anyone dig this incredibly hot actor? He was The Flash, and Dawson's dad on Dawson's Creek. I was more attracted to him than the younger guys on Dawson's Creek (except Kerr Smith, who tied with JWS). He was also on the soaps, and did an episode of NYPD Blue where he showed his ass. And he's gay in real life, to boot.

I've often wondered if the rumor about John Wesley Shipp and James van der Beek fooling around was true.

A couple of years ago John himself posted to his IMDB message board to set the record straight about those rumors. Here it is:

Excuse me but...the endless speculation about my reasons for leaving Dawson's Creek in its fifth season is flattering but highly innacurate. Even 6 years after I left the Creek, the "explanations" are fantastic. I will tell you exactly what happened; after that, you're on your own to create and fantasize to your heart's content.

First of all, let me say that I am proud to have been apart of this pop-cultural phenomenon, working with a gifted cast saying the words of gifted writers under skilled direction and the watchful eyes of enthusiastic producers. We had the feeling we were creating something special far from "Hollywoodland" on the charming Southeastern-USA coastal waterways of Wilmington, NC. At the outset, playing a parent on this show was a joy, crafted as it was for the parents to enjoy independent (though subsidiary) and intersecting storylines with the kids: witness the HURRICANE episode. In seasons 3 and 4, however, the parent's storylines were progressively de-emphazised. By season 5, the kids were going off to college and leaving the Creek which would have left the parents exactly... where? (clue: not "ahead")
At the end of season 4, all of the adults' contracts were permitted to lapse, to allow for restructuring deals in order to reflect the importance of storylines once the kids left for college; we all sensed the sea-change ahead. As it turned out, the producers only wanted 6 episodes from "Mom and Dad." Not wishing to stick around to see my contribution to the show shrink to more disappointing levels, I set my price high during negotiations. The 5th season began shooting and no deal. The WB SHUT DOWN PRODUCTION the first week of the 5th season due to lack of a storyline and no major motivating event. Paul Stupin contacted me in LA for coffee and asked--if they gave me the $$$ I was asking and 2 great scripts--would I come back to kill the character. In lieu of limping along to a disappointing end, I agreed.
Et voila: DAWSON'S CREEK HAD ITS MAJOR MOTIVATING INCIDENT FOR SEASON FIVE; ONE OF THE PARENTS COULD ASSUME ALL OF THE DIMINISHING PARENTAL DUTIES INSTEAD OF SPLITTING THEM; DAWSON GOT AN AWESOME STORYLINE TO EXPLORE WITH THE DEATH OF HIS DAD; AND MITCH GOT TO "JUMP THE SHARK" IN A WAY THAT HONORED THE CHARACTER AND MADE ME FEEL THAT THE PREVIOUS 4 YEARS HAD BEEN ABOUT SOMETHING.

And so, people, those are all of the facts that I know...rumors of "affairs" and "crushes" notwithstanding. If there was anything else, I to this day am unaware of it. It may not be so dramatic, but it happens to be the truth.

Go to Ebay, type John Wesley Shipp in the search and "entertainment memorabilia"
in the other. Some nice photos of JWS should appear.

I think he looks much better as a mature man rather than a callow youth. The 80's blow dried man and lithe body just don't do it for me. But the slightly gray, crinkly eyed heavily muscled body .... well, let's just say fade to black.

I had such a crush on this man back in his soap opera days as
Kelly Nelson on Guiding Light (early 80s). he would wear these tight
white jeans on the show
