Yes, really...

James Van Der Beek is set to play Diplo in a new TV show.

The working title of the show is What Would Diplo Do?, with the one-time Dawson's Creek star set to play the titular character.

Deadline reports that Spike Jonze is “shepherding” the program, while both Van Der Beek and Diplo are named as executive producers.

The comedy-drama is described as the story of a "guy who can bring 60,000 people to their feet... but kind of sucks one-on-one."

What Would Diplo Do? airs later this year. The show itself was sparked by a Mad Decent promo clip, in which James Van Der Beek plays Diplo - check it out below.
