TV’s obsession with casting Dawson Leery as a major creep continues…

James Van Der Beek, who in the past two years has played everything from a killer (on Criminal Minds) to a homophobic fashion designer (on Ugly Betty), has been tapped to portray a sleazy moneyman on ABC’s The Forgotten.

In the upcoming episode, the Beek will play Judd Shaw, a deceptive and opportunistic financial broker questioned by The Forgotten Network.

The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced Forgotten — which is in danger of becoming just that if ratings don’t improve — airs Tuesdays at 10 pm/ET.
