a day in the life

James Van Der Beek Snatched Diplo’s Essence in a Tour Promo

Someone get James Van Der Beek a heat pack, because his acting muscles are stretched. The chameleon, best known for disappearing into his role as an American teen on Dawson’s Creek and for playing “James Van Der Beek” on Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23, has gone gung-ho with the method acting yet again. This time, he stepped out of the trappings of “James” to play corny white dude Diplo. In a promo for the Mad Decent Block Party (other performers include Kesha, Tiësto, D.R.A.M., AlunaGeorge, RL Grime, Kaskade, and Flosstradamus), “Diplo” gives us a peek at a day in his life (fam), from making it rain (fam), to fighting the haters (fam), to keeping in contact with the fam (fam). Jen Lindley as Kesha next, please.
