Actor James Van Der Beek’s new gig is a role in the latest CSI spin-off CSI: Cyber. According to Van Der Beek, however, he needs something even more exciting to burn off some steam, so he makes sure he gets some parkour in as often as he can.


Parkour, of course, is a form of movement where a participant looks at obstacles in their path and figures out a way to  get around, across, through, over or under it. In recent years, it has become a popular form of exercise.

It’s not really that surprising Van Der Beek does it, however, as his mother was a gymnastics teacher for many years.

Watch James Van Der Beek show off his parkour skills on The Ellen Show in the video below.

And, if you love James Van Der Beek, do watch him telling James Corden how he once got busted with gay porn. It’s a funny story.
