Katie Holmes would consider a Dawson's Creek reunion.
The 33-year-old actress thinks it would be fun to get back together with the cast of the hit teen drama - James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams and Joshua Jackson - to film a brand new series where the gang go on holiday together.
"I love everyone from the show and we have kind of talked about it here and there, but what do you do? Michelle's character passed away... Our last episode, we were already five years older. Maybe we'll go on vacation, that will be fun--and just film it!" she said when speaking on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
The popular show ran from 1998 until 2003 and afforded Katie her break-out role. The brunette beauty is currently making a return to acting and juggling rehearsals for Broadway play Dead Accounts with looking after six-year-old daughter Suri. Discussing her new project, where she plays an Ohio woman who still lives with her parents whose brother comes home after "doing something really wrong," she said, "It's a comedy, but there's a lot of heavy themes."
Michelle Williams wants to star in a Dawson's Creek reunion.
The 31-year-old actress played Jen Lindley in the teen drama - which was broadcast from 1998 to 2003 - and she would "very happily" reprise her role again, although she admits it would have to be as a ghost or in a series of flashbacks after her alter-ego died in the series.
"I would very happily do a reunion show, I don't know what it would be. My character died in the end, so there are certain limitations for me. It's either I come back as a ghost or I'm shot through a lot of gauzy, hazy light as my nineteen-year-old self," she said at Comic-Con.
Michelle believes a Dawson's Creek reunion would be a great way to "honor" the show - which followed four friends, Dawson Leery (James Van Der Beek), Joey Potter (Katie Holmes), Pacey Witter (Joshua Jackson) and Jen in the fictional seaside town of Capeside, Massachusetts - for both its stars and fans: "I've always said that I would really love to and I think independently, we've all been saying that. So at some point I hope that it does happen [as] ... a way to honor the past and what a big deal it was for the four or five of us and what a big deal it was for the people who watched it."
Michelle Williams would be ''totally'' up for a Dawson's Creek reunion.
The Oscar-nominated actress claims she would love to reprise her role as Jen Lindley in the teen drama which ran from 1998-2003, and believes lead star James Van Der Beek should call her up to ask her.
"[James] has my email. He has my phone, and my cell phone, so we talk. He could totally ask! I've always said I'm totally up for reunion tours, reunion shows, so we can do that!" she said.
Michelle - who has six-year-old daughter Matilda - is not the only star of the show who has expressed an interest in returning to the series; Katie Holmes, who played Joey Potter in the drama, admits she would enjoy the opportunity to bring Dawson's Creek back: "It would be fun. I had so much fun working on that show and I loved everyone so much and I think about it with such fond memories."
James has previously said he has grown to appreciate his role as Dawson Leery as he has gotten older: "The older get, the easier it is to appreciate how lucky I was to have that experience."
"I said to a friend [that] being on Dawson's Creek was kind of like being a mobster. You set up a shop selling pizza but in the back you're laundering money. You're doing one thing in plain sight and secretly plotting something else. I was plotting my tastes, my interests, my beliefs and hopes for what I could be."

Who says public pressure doesn’t work?
Just a few weeks ago, Dr. Phil did an about-face and canceled plans for a Britney-centric show. (He claimed it was an act of consideration for the family.) Now Entertainment Tonight and The Insider are throwing out the word ‘respect’ as the reason for one of their own cancellations.
The two tabloid shows were scheduled to air a video involving Heath Ledger and drugs this Thursday night. The 2006 tape - which was practically aired in its entirety for Wednesday’s promo - showed the actor in the vicinity of drugs (and drug users) at the Chateau Marmont. Although it wasn’t clear if he was taking anything in the teased bits, his audible comments made it clear he wasn’t doing something his girlfriend (Michelle Williams) would approve of. He is also heard talking about their recently-born daughter, Matilda Rose.
Although I have never seen the full video, the shortened version was more than enough. The teaser’s over-the-top narration was extremely salacious, gratuitous and insensitive. I was so bothered by what was shown….and I apparently wasn’t the only one. Late Wednesday, reps for both shows confirmed the sweeps segment had been pulled. Here is a copy of the short statement printed on ET’s website:
“Out of respect for Heath Ledger’s family, “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider” have decided not to run the Heath Ledger video which has been circulating in the world media.”
