The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has adopted the growing JVDB-rating, a classification system designed to highlight films and TV projects starring James Van Der Beek.
Since it was created two years ago, the JVDB-rating has been picked up by numerous film festivals and cinemas across the U.S. in a bid to showcase films featuring the former Dawson’s Creek star.
The move by IMDb now means that the website’s individual pages of Van Der Beek titles – including the likes of Varsity Blues, Standing Still, Final Draft and Formosa Betrayed – all come with the JVDB tag.
“It’s great that you can now use IMDb to browse shows and films starring James,” said Julie Welpsy, creator of the rating. “But I truly hope that we can soon reach a point where the JVDB-rating will become redundant as more stories we see on screen are told by and about James Van Der Beek.”
