Picks and Pans Review: Spotlight On...james Van Der Beek
Van Der Beek says he'll be ready to leave the kid stuff behind when Creek ends. "I've gotten everything I ever wanted out of it," says the 25-year-old actor, who helped coach a high school baseball team in Wilmington, N.C., where the show tapes. "It's been my life for so many years. I'm going to need to decompress."
Indeed, Van Der Beek is looking forward to being in L.A., where his fiancée, Heather McComb (Party of Five), 25, is planning their impending nuptials. "We haven't had much time together. I've racked up 330,000 frequent-flyer miles," says Van Der Beek. "I singlehandedly saved US Air from bankruptcy."
