James Van Der Beek regrets turning down a role in Wedding Crashers.
The Dawson's Creek actor rejected the chance to audition for the part of Sack Lodge - the onscreen boyfriend of Rachel McAdams' character - in the 2005 comedy movie because he was "worried" about being portrayed in a "certain way," but he now wishes he had gone up against Bradley Cooper for the job.
"I look at some of my decisions in that time and I think, 'Why did I do that?' I turned down auditions for things I probably shouldn't have, like the role that went to Bradley Cooper in Wedding Crashers because I was worried about being seen in a certain way. In retrospect that was something of an unnecessary worry."
James felt "burned out" when he finished filming Dawson's Creek - which lasted for six seasons from 1998 to 2003 - and he was glad to have a break from his "exhausting" schedule.
UPDATE: Isla Fisher acknowledges the Amy Adams comparisons here.
Here’s my random celebrity question of the day:
A police log obtained by the National Enquirer backs up their earlier claim on the Owen Wilson situation. The report from the Santa Monica Police Department confirms that they did respond to an ‘attempted suicide’ call after 12pm Sunday. The TV show Extra is also adding that it was Luke Wilson, Owen’s brother, who found him.

As reported earlier, Owen Wilson was transported to the hospital Sunday afternoon. Although we still do not know what he is being treated for, a statement released today by the actor hints that he had more than just an accident.
“I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time.”
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center reports that Wilson is currently in good condition.

Several sites have reported tonight that Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers) has been transported to the hospital for medical care. Now the National Enquirer and Star magazine are exclusively claiming that the actor was found after an apparent suicide attempt. Santa Monica Police and Fire responded to Wilson’s house around noon Sunday after receiving a 911 call. According to the Enquirer, the actor may have cut his wrists and ingested an unknown number of pills.
It’s doubtful due to patient privacy laws that we may ever know the full story. Regardless, we sincerely wish the best for Owen’s recovery.
