5 minutes ago Dawson's Creek has a legacy in pop culture that has fans wondering about the possibility of a revival with the original cast on board, even 20 years after it first hit the airwaves back in 1998. It also has a legacy for a very different reason: The Dawson Leery Cry-Face. In an episode that saw Dawson go on an emotional ride, James Van Der Beek's face crumpled into a cry that would be turned into a popular meme years later. By this point, it's safe to say that more people recognize James Van Der Beek from the meme than from Dawson's Creek. Well, Van Der Beek's Dawson's Creek co-star Joshua Jackson has offered up a challenge to The Dawson Leery Cry-Face, and it's pretty epic. Take a look!

Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation just placed its first person behind bars. So, who is he? Alex van der Zwaan was served with a 30-day jail sentence on Tuesday along with a $20,000 fine after admitting to lying to special agents in Mueller’s Russia probe during November 2017. The false statements concerned e-mail communications and phone calls between him and Richard Gates, an ex-campaign aide to President Donald Trump. Van der Zwaan is a 33-year-old Dutch attorney who is also the son-in-law of Russian oligarch German Khan, who is also linked to President Vladimir Putin.

At the time, Gates and Paul Manafort, another ex-Trump campaign aide, were … [Read more...] about Who is Alex van der Zwaan, the First Person Sentenced in the Mueller Probe?
Back in February, Dutch attorney Alex van der Zwaan pleaded guilty to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment that charged him with lying to federal agents about his interactions with former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates. Today, van der Zwaan was sentenced to 30 days in jail. He was also fined $20,000. The judge that sentence the lawyer stated that van der Zwaan attempted to ingratiate himself with both Gates and former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort and that he attempted to conceal key information while hiding his lies from his law firm. Some of the key information that van der Zwaan is accused of concealing regards Gates’ contact with a Russian intelligence agent during the 2016 presidential campaign.
