Katie Holmes: I Would "Absolutely" Do a Dawson's Creek Reunion

Dawson's Creek fans held their collective breath when James Van Der Beek spoofed the idea of a reunion on Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23 earlier this season -- only to be disappointed when Jen, Pacey, and Joey failed to show. But Katie Holmes says she hasn't completely ruled out the idea of a real-life meet-up with her former costars.

Stopping by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to promote the Broadway play Dead Accounts, the 33-year-old actress and single mother (to 6-year-old Suri) said she'd be open to revisiting the Creek with James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson, Michelle Williams, and Busy Philipps. (Philipps, 33, did a cameo as herself on the reunion episode of Don’t Trust the B.)

"I love everyone from the show," Holmes told Fallon. "We have kind of talked about it here and there. But we're like, 'What do you do?' Because [in] our last episode, Michelle's character passed away...I don't know...Maybe we'll go on vacation -- that [would] be fun -- and just film it!"

"So if there was a good story, you would do it," Fallon clarified.

"Yeah, absolutely," she said.


The star's affection for her Creek cast mates is well-documented. In September, she even reached out to Jackson, 35, her former onscreen love interest.

"Like any old friend, it was like, 'Oh, hi, how are ya? What's going on?" the Fringe actor said of their out-of-the-blue chat. "It was very nice, actually."

Jackson has been in a relationship with Diane Kruger since 2006, but back in the day, he and Holmes were quite the couple. In fact, the actress once referred to him as "her first love" -- which may be one reason Tom Cruise reportedly nixed the idea of a Dawson's Creek reunion during his marriage to Holmes.

"[Producers] were begging [Katie] to sign on for a reunion movie," a source told Us Weekly in July. "Tom said absolutely no way. [He] thought going backward would be bad."

(Incidentally, TV fanatic Fallon has a history of trying to get old cast mates back together. In 2009, he campaigned to reconnect Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Thiessen, Mario Lopez, and the rest of the Bayside gang for a Saved by the Bell reunion. When that failed, he turned instead to the California Dreams crew, who performed their show's theme song on a 2010 episode of Late Night.)

In any case, a Creek-side reunion will have to wait until after Dead Accounts, in which the former Mrs. Tom Cruise appears opposite Norbert Leo Butz, Judy Greer, and Josh Hamilton, with whom she shares a passionate onstage kiss. And though no one could ever replace Dawson, Jen, and Pacey, sources say the Broadway costars have become very close.

"[Katie's] got her personal stuff going on, but she leaves that at the door. Behind the scenes, she's a funny, loving girl, not an ounce of diva in her," an insider told Us, adding that the whole cast has "really bonded."
