There was an epic Dawson's Creek pilot script reading at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas on Sunday.
The show's creator Kevin Williamson read the stage direction...
And Kerr Smith, who played Jack McPhee on the series, read for Jen Lindley, who was basically Jack's soul mate.
Parenthood alum Mae Whitman was Dawson Leery, and Suits star Patrick J. Adams read Joey Potter.
Rectify's Abigail Spencer read for Pacey.
Friday Night Lights' Louanne Stephens was fittingly Grams; the actors who played Billy and Mindy Riggins on FNL — Derek Phillips and Stacey Oristano — were Dawson's parents, Mitch and Gail; and The Vampire Diaries alum Arielle Kebbel was Tamara Jacobs.
Rounding out the panel was Orphan Black's Kristian Bruun as Joey's sister Bessie and bitchy classmate Nellie Oleson, and Revenge alum Nick Wechsler as Bessie's boyfriend Bodie and Capeside film teacher Mr. Gold.
Before the panel began, Oristano gave Whitman, an FNL obsessive, a photo of Tim Riggins from the actual Riggins home. He basically presided over the reading.
Whitman and Adams nailed the Dawson-Joey dynamic from the start.
It was pretty impressive.
OK, REALLY impressive.
And in the end...
Whitman nailed the kicker.
Basically, it was epic.
We can only assume Dawson would've been proud, but Joshua Jackson, who played Pacey in the series, definitely was!
Longtime Williamson collaborator Julie Plec, who was in the audience for the script reading, tweeted about Spencer's Pacey prowess... and Jackson chimed in.
