'Dawson's Creek' star was married to wife for almost six years

Court records show James Van Der Beek has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly six years.

The former "Dawson's Creek" star filed for divorce Friday in Los Angles. He cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split with actress Heather McComb.

The couple were married in July 2003 and have no children.

The 32-year-old actor recently appeared in four episodes of "One Tree Hill" and has starred in films such as "Varsity Blues" and "The Rules of Attraction."

McComb has appeared as a supporting actress in several movies and television shows.
