Ageing teen sensations Rob Lowe and James Van Der Beek are at odds over a baseball clash after the former West Wing star accused the ex-Dawson's Creek lead of lying about a catch on U.S. TV.
The two actors were on opposite sides in an all-star celebrity game in 2004 at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles when Lowe hit what he thought was a sensational home run, only to watch Van Der Beek fly through the air, crash through a barrier and rob him of glory in front of his children, who were cheering their dad on.
Van Der Beek concedes he should have let the ball go, but he's upset that disappointed Lowe went on national TV and accused him of cheating.
He says, "Rob went on The Tonight Show and said that I didn't catch the ball, that it was rolling around on the ground, that I lied about catching it."
To hammer his point home, Van Der Beek showed photo footage of his great catch during an appearance on U.S. chat show Lopez Tonight on Tuesday (26Jan10).
He added, "Rob, dude, it's evidence - indisputable digital evidence."
The actor then challenged Lowe to come on comedian George Lopez's show and apologise to him.
