Jason Biggs will "never live down" being the "guy who f**ked a pie." The 33-year-old actor - who plays Jim Levenstein in the American Pie franchise - admitted while he has lived most of his life being the "pie guy," in reference to his character masturbating with the use of a warm dessert in the first movie, he is "proud" of the now infamous scene.
"I'll never live down being the guy who f**ked a pie. I've lived almost more of my life being the 'pie guy' than I have not being that guy. But I'm proud of that scene and what it meant for my career, my personal life, my finances - everything. It took balls to do that scene."
But maybe this time, it’ll have more plot than Naked Mile. The American Pie franchise is still chugging along, but hopefully the next sequel won’t follow the ill-fated Beta House route.
The aptly-named American Reunion plans to reunite the cast from the very first (and incredibly successful) American Pie movie. Jason Biggs, Eugene Levy and Sean William Scott are all on board with the project (though, considering Scott’s recent move to rehab his fate is now up in the air). Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Mena Suvari, Alyson Hannigan and Jennifer Coolidge are all in talks with Universal about their proposed participation in the film.
Filming is slated to begin in May.

Despite mixed reviews for his latest film, Shia LaBeouf once again proved he has box office appeal. Eagle Eye, a film from Disturbia‘s D.J. Caruso, earned $29.2 million over the past three days and the #1 spot. Even a Friday night presidential debate couldn’t stop the thriller from putting nearly $16 million between itself and Nights in Rodanthe, this weekend’s #2. Although Nights - the third pairing for Diane Lane and Richard Gere - took in $13.4 million, the romantic drama did almost $1 million less than 2002’s Unfaithful.
Fireproof - a faith-based film starring Kirk Cameron - surprised many with its 4th place finish. Although it was only available in 839 theaters, the movie had an impressive $8111 per screen average. Meanwhile, two films outside the Top Ten boasted averages over the $10,000 mark. The Duchess (ranked #13) pulled in $10,238 per theater while Ed Harris’ Appaloosa (#35) did slightly better with $10,469.
