James Van Der Beek Net Worth $10 Million

James decided to try and pursue a professional acting career when he was 15 years old. As with many other famous actors, James started to build a name for himself in the theatre first, before moving on to film industry. As a teenager, he performed in the play ”Finding the Sun” which was a great success and in the musical “Shenandoah”. In 1995, James started his film career by appearing in the comedy drama film “Angus” and a year later in the romantic drama “I Love You, I Love You Not”.

Even though James tried to study in Drew University, he dropped out to concentrate on acting only. 1997 was the year that completely changed James’s career when he decided to audition for the teenage TV show’s “Dawson Creek” pilot episode. The series ran for six seasons and became a worldwide success. Another role that had a key importance in James’s career and rising net worth was in the 1999 coming-of-age sports drama “Varsity Blues”. James’s spectacular performance resulted in him winning MTV Movie Award as “Best Breakthrough Male Performer”, Teen Choice Award in “Film – Breakout Performance” in 1999, and a Blockbuster Entertainment Award as “Favorite Actor – Newcomer” in 2000. In the next few years, James appeared in a number of movies and TV shows. In 2000 he made a cameo appearance in a parody horror film “Scary Movie” and even though his role hasn’t been credited, he won a MTV Movie Award for “Best Cameo in a Movie” in 2001. It is worth noting that he has appeared on a few episodes of the popular police procedural TV show “Criminal Minds” in 2007, sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” in 2008 and again in 2013 which might also have influenced his net worth.

However, it seems that James’s net worth might experience an impressive increase as he has been chosen to play one of the main roles in a new political procedural TV series “CSI: Cyber” which are a part of an extremely successful CSI franchise and will without a doubt receive some level of success and recognition in the near future.

In his personal life, James Van Der Beek has been married twice, firstly to actress Heather McComb in 2003, but the couple divorced in 2010. In the same year, he married Kimberly Brook, with whom he soon had a daughter and they now have two more children.

1[on 'Dawson's Creek'] As popular as the show was, the fact that people are still all relevant however many years later, the fact that none of us are in jail, is pretty staggering. The odds that four people that young, who got that famous that quickly, would all turn out okay is pretty rare. I think a lot of it had to do with shooting in North Carolina, and being away from the pitfalls that come in Hollywood. We all kept each other honest to a degree.
2[Talking about shooting a TV show] "Sometimes it can be really stressful. But that's where it's important to have a close cast working together. On our show - Michelle, Katie, Josh and I get along really well. We all started together - and we back each other whenever we have any problems with the writers. So if there's unity amongst the cast then that reduces the level of stress and tension that can work its way into a long running show".
3I'm not about to talk about what's romantic in my life - I figure if you talk about it once - then that's an open invitation for everyone to dig into your personal life even further. So, I just keep my private life to myself.
4"I love New York City. Everyone is busy with their own lives - and no one is interested in some Hollywood celebrity walking past in downtown Manhattan.Thats why it's my favorite city. You can do what you want without attracting a crowd of curious onlookers".
