The dashingly handsome Joshua Jackson and costar Bernadeta Wrobel (not pictured) kick it into high gear as they film scenes for their new television series Fringe near Queen Street in Toronto, Canada on Sunday.

Jackson, 29, will play Peter Bishop, a smart high-school drop-out with a high IQ but problems gambling debts. Bishop is also said to be a member of a unit investigating sci-fi mysteries. - Just Jared
J.J. Abrams is adding another J.J. to his team: The writer-producer has just cast Joshua Jackson as one of the leads of his new Fox drama, Fringe. Jackson — best known as wise-cracking Pacey from Dawson's Creek — will play a member of a unit investigating sci-fi mysteries; the gang also includes his gifted yet possibly insane scientist dad with whom he clashes (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King's John Noble) and an FBI agent (Australian actress Anna Torv). The series, which Abrams has described as similar in spirit to The X-Files, Altered States, and The Twilight Zone, is shooting a two-hour pilot with a reported $10-million-plus budget this month. - Hollywood Insider
Joshua Jackson ("Dawson's Creek," upcoming Shutter) is returning to television as the male lead in "Fringe," Fox's high-profile sci-fi drama from J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

The two-hour $10 million pilot, directed by Alex Graves, centers on FBI agent Olivia Warren (Anna Torv) who teams with Peter Bishop (Jackson) and his estranged father, institutionalized scientist Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble), to confront the spread of unexplained phenomena.

Jackson was the producers' early choice for the role of Peter Bishop, a high-school dropout with an IQ of 190, and a misfit who is scrambling to erase a gambling debt.

Filming on the Warner Bros. TV/Bad Robot-produced "Fringe" is under way in Toronto. The pilot's cast also includes Blair Brown, Lance Reddick, Kirk Acevedo and Jasika Nicole. - Coming Soon

Great images of Joshua onset, I am so hoping 'Fringe' is going to produce some of his best work, I feel like he has kind of lost his way in his career. His participation in Indie movies is well known but really IMO the best thing he has done in the last few years has been 'Aurora Borealis'.Sadly 'Shutter' was something of a disaster. 'Fringe needs to be a big success and run for more than one season!

Jackson always struck me as the likeliest to go on to bigger and better things post Dawson's Creek. Which at the time seemed strange given he wasn't the lead.
