James shared the photo with an unsuspecting public, which went up on his Instagram along with the caption, “The most pleasant run-ins can happen in the most unexpected places.”
Obviously, both men have gotten along pretty well since leaving the creek back in 2003. Jackson starred on the cult sci-fi series Fringe before landing a spot on the cast of Showtime’s newest hit The Affair. Van Der Beek is following up playing himself on Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 with a role in the upcoming CSI spin-off CSI: Cyber.
It’s nice to know that James has a soft spot for the role that made him famous though, even telling The Huffington Post recently that it seems like it’s been another lifetime for him since starring on the WB hit.
