James Van Der Beek won’t be the only TV star playing himself on the season 2 premiere of ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23: EW has learned that Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Frankie Muniz will pop up in the roles of Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Frankie Muniz, respectively. In the episode, Van Der Beek attempts to pull off a Dawson’s Creek reunion, and crosses paths with other actors who also served as the stars of their own shows, such as Gosselaar and Muniz. Earlier this week, at least one of Van Der Beek’s former Creek co-stars was confirmed to appear in the episode, and her name is not Katie Holmes or Michelle Williams but… Busy Philipps (Cougar Town)!
Gosselaar, who came to fame in Saved By The Bell, recently finished his second season on TNT’s legal dramedy Franklin & Bash. (The season finale airs Aug. 14.) Muniz, the Malcolm in the Middle center, guest-starred earlier this year on another ABC comedy, Last Man Standing.
The season premiere of Apt. 23 airs Oct. 23.
