I don’t know about you, but the whole time I watched Dawson’s Creek, I never thought the girl next door would go on to receive three Oscar nominations by the time she was 31. Not that there was anything wrong with Dawson’s Creek. At least, Season 1. I’m pretty sure I jumped off after that one.
While the show’s other leads (James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson) have gone on to other roles and varrying degrees of success, Michelle Williams has become one of the most sought after, gifted actresses of her generation. I would never have thought the girl next door would be able to portray one of the most beloved superstars of all time, but Williams is utterly awesome as Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn, which is out on DVD/Blu-Ray today.
