    Hey guys I was just watching TV in a hotel room while on business and was channel surfing when an old episode of Dawson's Creek was on. I don't know the guy that play's his dad but he was in a scene where he was fishing while standing on a pier, had on jeans and looked like he had a HUGE bulge... anyone know anything about this guy? He also seemed to have a smokin hot body... I didn't remember him being so hot... maybe I just horny in this hotel room!

    Dawson's "dad" was played by Jon (or maybe John) Wesley Shipp. He was a soap star on "Guiding Light" in the early 80s and played "The Flash" in that short-lived series.

    Not to perpetuate rumors, BUT I have read from several sources (can't remember them all now) that he is a well-known (and well-used) Hollywood bottom who took advantage of the casting couch to get many of his roles. I also he that he was killed off of "Dawson's Creek" because he and James spent too much time alone together in the trailers. Take it for what it's worth, but I always did get a big gay vibe from him.

    Yeah, and then he kicked the bucket in the fifth season.

    John was on NYPD Blues where it showed him totally naked. Unfortunately, you only get to see his nice ass. But I am not complaining.

    You get a gay vibe from him because JWS is openly gay. Strangely, this handsome stud is almost never discussed on the gay message boards.

    Yeah, he's openly gay. I think he got a mention in the "Golden Age of Television Bulges" thread.

    On the other hand, I don't get "gay" at all from James Van Der Beek...I haven't seen him acting normal enough times to read him, but I don't know if I'd call him a 'mo.
