Joshua Jackson headed to San Diego last weekend for a convention — Pacey-Con. Watch the Funny or Die exclusive video below and marvel at how more people don’t seem to be recognizing him from Fringe (which he was actually in town to promote at Comic-Con). It’s all awesome, but my two favorite parts: When he tells the guys “excellent Pacey costumes” and when he reveals the real reason he returned to TV — to support his true passion, Pacey Fan Fiction.

In all seriousness, Dawson’s Creek‘s Pacey Witter is a character worth discussing somewhere on a panel about sidekicks who stole their shows from actors whose character names were in the title and/or who were hired to be the heartthrob and weren’t. Who else should be on that panel?
