Dawson's Creek forever bros James Van Der Beek and Joshua Jackson are going at it hardcore in the ultimate grudge match. No, they're not vying for Joey's affections but for the best ugly crying face meme.
It started when Jackson (formerly Pacey on Dawson's Creek), who's currently starring in Showtime's The Affair, had a recent ugly cry of his own as Cole Lockhart on the set of his new drama. According to Entertainment Weekly, the cringey pic of Jackson's Lockhart crying is from the August 5 episode of The Affair.
Before the internet could call him out on it, Jackson owned his ugly tears, posting his side-by-side with his Creek co-star Van Der Beek saying, "I'm coming for your crown @VanderJames."
Fans were all about the challenge:
And Jackson's performance was all the rave:
Though it's been 15 years since the gang from Capeside, Massachusetts, all said goodbye, they recently got back together for a quick reunion courtesy of Entertainment Weekly (EW).
According to video of the event captured and shared on EW, it turns out Van Der Beek IS a fan of the infamous meme.
He did express a bit of incredulity about the whole thing:
I feel like everybody on this show cried more than I did and I was the one who got caught in the loop!
To which Jackson replied:
It’s not how many times you cried. It’s how you cried!
In the end, though, Dawson may very well let Pacey have the crown, as he did the girl so many years ago.
Here's a clip from the gang's reunion shoot, where Van Der Beek confesses to being #TeamPacey:
