The final episode of the series also gives first-time guest star James Van Der Beek -- yes, Dawson himself -- a chance to live out a dream he's had since he bombed a 'L&O' audition at 16. That's right, a young Van Der Beek once tried out for a small role on the original version of the Dick Wolf series. Things didn't go so well for him the first time around, but as we all know, everything turned out okay for the Connecticut teenager.
After the jump, watch AOL TV's exclusive behind-the-scenes clip of the Beek from the Creek describing that disastrous tryout. His episode -- the 'Criminal Intent' series finale -- airs this Sun., June 5, at 9PM ET on USA.
