James Van Der Beek reminisces about 'Dawson's Creek' stalkers on 'Late Night' -- VIDEO

James Van Der Beek had plenty of fan girls during his Dawson’s Creek days. But the way he tells it, screaming teens were the least of his worries back then.

When visiting Late Night to promote his new show, Friends with Better Lives, on Thursday, Van Der Beek told Seth Meyers that his craziest stalker was a man who made him mix-tapes featuring songs from films and TV shows that the actor appeared in. Seriously. Check out his funny-scary recollection here:

James Van Der Beek remembers 'Dawson's Creek', 'Varsity Blues' and the role that got away

You know James Van Der Beek, from, well, being James Van Der Beek. The former star of Dawson’s Creek played a fictionalized version of himself on 2012’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, after adding a whole list of credits (like Varsity Blues, Rules of Attraction, and How I Met Your Mother) to his resume in addition to Dawson.

The Beek’s next role? Divorced doctor Will in CBS’s new sitcom Friends with Better Lives, premiering March 31. Before he shows off his comedy chops once again, Van Der Beek took a game look back at his most important roles — and the people who still hold a place in his heart, even after two decades in the biz.

The role my mom loves the most: Varsity Blues
“I think my mom was probably a Dawson fan, but it’s so funny — my mom’s favorite scene is the one in Varsity Blues where I give all the names for the different words for an erection. She just finds it really funny. The fact that I say ‘Pedro’ at the end of it, she just thought was hilarious. Quite frankly, I don’t want to discuss or think too much about why.”

PopWatch Playlist: First-time TV tunes that struck a chord -- LISTEN

Last night’s flashback-tastic New Girl episode, “Virgins,” was a treasure trove of music to set the mood — some songs more successfully than others — as the loftmates looked back on their first sexual encounters. Anchoring the eclectic mix (which ranged from Sublime to Boyz II Men and even figured in Lisa Loeb), Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen” kicked in during a fan-fulfilling scene between Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel).

It got us thinking of some of our favorite first-time anthems from shows of yore. Below, our ultimate Spotify playlist of coupling tracks! READ FULL STORY

'Dawson's Creek': Who's the teenage dream, Joey/Dawson or Joey/Pacey? POLL

In honor of March Madness, EW is launching a tournament to determine the Greatest TV Couple of All Time. But before we can finalize the brackets, we are turning to you, our hopeless TV romantic readers, to decide which five couples – all part of a love triangle on their shows — make it out of a qualifying round to fill the final slots. Today, we’re debating Joey and Dawson versus Joey and Pacey on Dawson’s Creek.

Admit it, people: Whether you loved or despised America’s original hate-watching phenomenon back when it aired, on some level, you still care about Dawson‘s Creek. Maybe not enough to actually watch Don’t Trust the B– in Apt. 23, but definitely enough to want only the best for Michelle Williams. (She’s been through so much, you guys!) And caring about Dawson’s Creek necessarily means nursing a strong opinion about the show’s central love triangle, which cast BFFs Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek) and Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson) as rivals for the heart of one Josephine Potter (Katie Holmes).

The funny thing about this conflict is that it wasn’t always Dawson‘s main throughline. When the soap began in 1998, its plot hinged on a totally different love triangle — the one between budding filmmaker Dawson, his lovelorn pal Joey, and sexy, sophisticated big city transplant Jen (Williams). In the series’s 10th episode, though, Joey and sarcastic screwup Pacey were forced to work on a school science project together — and suddenly, the show’s writers realized that their snappy, Beatrice and Benedick-esque dynamic might be more interesting than Joey’s unrequited love for the boy who lived across the creek.
