From the Inside Flap


James Van Der Beek is a young actor on the verge of megastardom. Riding high on the huge success of his film Varsity Blues, and with his hit show Dawson's Creek about to enter its third season, James is poised to become one of the hottest commodities in Hollywood.

Just like the sensitive, soulful, and oh-so-sexy Dawson, James grew up in a small New England town, where he dreamed of big-time success. Teen People called him a "real-life Brandon Walsh." A Renaissance man who is gorgeous to boot, he excelled at everything he tried: sports, academics, music, and especially drama. In BOY NEXT DOOR, you'll find out how James first discovered acting and the hits and misses of his early career. And, of course, you'll get all the essentials--his passions and turn-offs, his hopes and aspirations, his dates and loves.

When it comes to his career and future, James has the Midas touch. And BOY NEXT DOOR is pure gold!
