James Van Der Beek? Nah, it's just some guy.
At the beginning of the commercial for this movie, which was featured on the Hallmark Channel, my wife and I thought that the lead was being played by James Van Der Beek, who had previously been in the movie "Varsity Blues". But when we actually paid attention to the commercial, we realized that it was just some guy. After watching that commercial, we referred to the that guy as a "poor man's James Van Der Beek". And whenever that commercial came on again, we would always say, "Hey, there's poor man's James Van Der Beek". In reading this IMDb page, I found out that poor man's James Van Der Beek is really named Robin Dunne. I'm not really trying to be insulting to Robin Dunne, or even to James Van Der Beek. It's just that Robin Dunne kind of looks James Van Der Beek when watching him on TV out of the corner of your eye.
I did watch a bit of this movie last night. It seemed that some woman was throwing herself at poor man's James Van Der Beek and he was just kind of shrugging his shoulders. She was also his Secret Santa even though he didn't consent to be in a Secret Santa exchange. Apparently he lost the Christmas spirit some time ago due to his parents joining some Satanic cult on Christmas day when he was younger or something like that. I didn't really pay attention, and my wife was asleep on the couch during the movie as well. We turned it off halfway through.
Personally, I think it would be great to have James Van Der Beek and Robin Dunne, the poor man's James Van Der Beek, over to dinner so that we could talk about how they look somewhat alike. They would probably get annoyed because that is all I would want to talk about at dinner, but whatever - I am feeding them, so they should be open to talking about what I'm interested in. Besides, I make a mean pot roast, so that would be worth sitting around for three hours and talking about how they have some similar features.
