Former Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek dropped by Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. And the host didn’t want to wait for his life to be over before asking Van Der Beek some questions about the cult classic.

During a segment called “I Don’t Want to Wait,” Cohen asked Van Der Beek, “Was there a moment when you thought ‘Dawson’s Creek’ jumped the shark?”

The star was happy to answer Cohen’s question, saying, “Yeah, at end of Season 2 when I had to wear a wire to implicate Joey’s father for a drug deal gone bad.” Considering the show ran for six seasons, that seems pretty early to have “jumped the shark.”

Cohen also asked the star about his former onscreen love interest Katie Holmes, saying, “Were you surprised that Katie Holmes wound up marrying Tom Cruise?” To which a smiling Van Der Beek responded, “Yes.”

Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen airs Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m. on Bravo TV.
