James Van Der Beek Checks Into Mercy - Featured

From EW:


The doctor is in, and he...ZOMG it's Dawson Leery!



Dawson's Creek grad James Van Der Beek is joining the cast of Mercy in the major recurring role of Liam West, the hospital's new ICU chief, sources confirm to me exclusively.


Cocky, womanizing, and manipulative, Dr. West will frequently clash with Sands, Harris, and the nurses. But beneath the alpha-male swagger lies a brilliant MD whose primary goal is to make Mercy Hospital money. The new doc is also hiding a deep, dark secret.


Word has it that Van Der Beek could become a series regular if the character clicks.


That raises the question: Do you think the character will click?
