It was a double does of James Van Der Beek in prime time, as he followed his turn as a hyper-realized version of himself on "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23," with an even more twisted and creepy performance on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on NBC).
HuffPost TV interviewed new series regular Kelli Giddish about the episode, which saw her fake a lesbian relationship with Mariska Hargitay, and about Van Der Beek and her thoughts about joining the show in general. In it, Giddish talked about how much fun it is to see actors who may have been typecast as one type of character come in and "play completely against type."
Van Der Beek was certainly a far cry from Dawson, playing a man so obsessed with his ex-girlfriend and her husband from college that he seduced her daughter. Even worse, he posed as the husband and seduced several of his daughters via sperm donation. Creepy and even more creepy from start to finish.
