James Van Der Beek has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly six years, actress Heather Ann McComb, Los Angeles court records show. The couple had no children together.
The pair separated earlier this year.
Van Der Beek, 32, and McComb got engaged in early 2003 and were married over the Fourth of July weekend that year in Malibu.
The two had exchanged vows in an outdoor ceremony in front of a group of guests that included Van Der Beek’s Dawson’s Creek costars Michelle Williams, Busy Phillips and pal Soleil Moon Frye.
