James Van Der Beek

Richer Than You

2/2/2010 11:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

James Van Der BeekJames Van Der Beek's career may have stalled post-Dawson -- but according to new divorce documents, his salary is anywhere but up a creek.

According to James' Income and Expense Declaration, filed last month in Los Angeles Superior Court, his average monthly salary is $49,343.

Also worth noting: He only pays $250/month eating out and drops $4,100/month on charity.

I selpt with John Edwards, too!!!!!    

Good for Dawson. He's a good actor, not sure why his career practically stopped after da' Creek ended. Hahaha!!! Varsity Blues was one of the best football movies of all-time. But in the same breath, it was hands down the worst display of southern accents in the history cinema. The only one that sounded halfway believable was Billy Bob, but that was because he is from Georgia.

I am sure he cries every day when he checks his bank account and does not have to wake up to Xenu. Plus he probably got to tap Katie when she was still hot.

How's he making that much? I've not seen him in anything post-Dawson except Varsity Blues, which was laughably bad. Can the residuals be that good?

Good question; where does all the money come from?

His good looks and talent?

Guess again!!

He's actually quite a good actor. He was awesome when he guest-starred on Criminal Minds and, even though it was a Lifetime movie, he was really good in "Taken in Broad Daylight". Yeah, Dawson Leery was a complete tool, but in my opinion anyone who can play a part that doesn't make you think you're watching another one of their characters is a good actor. Watch "Rules of Attraction". You definitely won't think you're seeing Dawson Leery.

Wow there are a bunch of haters out there! He is good with his money that's all! And it's none of anyone's business how he makes it. He donates a lot of money to charity each month, why can't anyone commend him for that??

For anyone wondering where he gets his oney from, anybody check IMDb lately? Guy's been working all over the place. Mystery solved.

James did the voice-over for the Verizon Droid commercials. He made bank from it according to my brother who did the commercials for Verizon. Nice paycheck for 10 hours worth of work.
