James Van Der Beek

James Van Der Beek is best known for playing the title part in Dawson's Creek — but his latest role in the film Labor Day is far removed from his teen star days.

Another role where Van Der Beek was decidedly unsexy was his appearance on How I Met Your Mother in 2008. 

"I got this call to do this guest spot," he told George from the red chair. "They wanted me to play a fat, balding, former Mr. Teen Winnipeg. And I thought, 'Well obviously I'm the natural choice.' I'd worked in Winnipeg a little bit and there was one guy who had this crazy accent.

"So I just called him and then did my own cartoonish version of it."
