'Dawson's Creek' Cast -- Then & Now

It's been nearly two decades since we said goodbye to "Dawson's Creek," and the cast has gone on to do some very memorable projects -- and some we're betting they hope you've forgotten.

In honor of 2018 marking the 20th anniversary of the show's premiere, TooFab couldn't resist recognizing some of the biggest missteps James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson and Katie Holmes, Busy Phillips and Kerr Smith took after the WB teen drama turned them into household names.

Take a look back with us at the oddest, weirdest, potentially most regrettable roles each of the main cast members added to their resume since "Dawson's Creek" ended its six-season run in May of 2003.

And if you happen to have seen these movies, we are sorry. So, so sorry.

James Van Der Beek – 'Eye Of The Beast' (2007)

The Beek stars in this made-for-TV movie about a scientist summoned to small seaside town to investigate why fish -- oh, and people -- are vanishing. Spoiler: There's a giant squid that lives in the lake. And when you need a man to take down a giant squid and save all mankind, you need Dawson Friggen Leery. Is there any problem Dawson can't solve?!? Thank you, Syfy, for this gem.

Katie Holmes – 'Jack and Jill' (2011)

Adam Sandler plays a twin brother (yep, Jack) and meddling twin sister (you guessed it, Jill), and Katie Holmes plays his wife. Real talk, which studio exec heard this movie pitch and gave it the green light? Not exactly singling out Katie here for her participation. Frankly, everyone involved should be banned from making movies ever again. There's a reason this movie swept the 2011 Razzies and has a 3 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. To cleanse your palette, we present Joey Potter singing "On My Own" in Creekside's annual Miss Windjammer pageant. You're welcome.

Michelle Williams – 'A Hole In One' (2004)

Speaking ill of Michelle Williams' acting is like criticizing a master chef's cuisine. But hey, even Mario Batali overcooks the pasta every once in a while. After wrapping her run as Jen Lindley -- arguably the greatest "Dawson's Creek" character of them all -- Michelle's very next project saw her as a woman in the 1950s questioning her sanity and deciding the only way to cure herself is to...have a lobotomy. Did we mention Meat Loaf (yep) plays her mob boss boyfriend? I think we've said enough.

Joshua Jackson – 'I Love Your Work' (2003)

On the plus side, this film has a cameo from Elvis Costello in it. On the downside, there's really everything else. Long gone is that boyish Pacey charm, and in its place is now a new Joshua Jackson character who may or may not be stalking Giovani Ribisi. Or maybe Ribisi's celebrity character is going crazy? Or maybe they just shouldn't have made this movie.

Busy Phillips – 'White Chicks' (2004)

Two words: White. Chicks. Let's move on...

Kerr Smith – 'What An Idiot' (2014)

As Jack McPhee, Kerr Smith powered some of the most emotionally resonant scenes in "Dawson's" lore -- from coming out to his father to asking a dying Jen if he could raise her daughter. After "Dawson's," Kerr put together an impressive TV resume. But for some reason, Kerr starred in the rom-com, "What An Idiot," which -- based on the NSFW trailer above -- is pretty light on both the rom and the com. A guy pretends to be gay to get close to a beautiful woman who otherwise wants nothing to do with him. How could she not fall in love with him when she finds out, you guys!?!
