LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Dawson's Creek" veteran James Van Der Beek has joined the cast of NBC's freshman medical drama "Mercy."

In a major recurring role that could become regular, he will play the hospital's new womanizing ICU chief who harbors a dark secret. "Mercy," which chronicles the lives of several nurses, has been picked up for a full season.
