Stifler Gives The American Pie Reboot A Thumbs Up

It was only last week that the return of American Pie was confirmed. The raunch-comedy classic is headed back to theaters, with a relaunch of the franchise as something more than a series of increasingly awful direct-to-DVD films. That means they’ll almost certainly be courting the original cast and, now it looks like at least one of them is already in talks to do join up.

Seann William Scott, who played Stifler in all three theatrically released American Pie movies (but wisely avoided the horrible straight-to-DVD versions), tells Coming Soon he’s in talks to return for the new Pie film. Typecasting? He doesn’t seem to mind. Stifler says, “We came up with an awesome idea and I'm kind of at the point where I'm already known as that character forever anyways.”

If they can get Seann William Scott, then landing far less busy American Pie alums like Jason Biggs, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Mena Suvari, or Shannon Elizabeth shouldn’t be a problem. Come to think of it, despite a lot of initial buzz over all of them, almost none of the American Pie cast has really amounted to much of anything. Alyson Hannigan and Seann William Scott are the sole exceptions to their overall abysmal career performance and really Hannigan is the only one who might even remotely have better things to do. Actually I hope she has better things to do. Alyson, you’re so much better than this now. Stick with How I Met Your Mother, you don’t need it.
