It has been more than 20 years since American Pie hit theaters in the summer of 1999. Jason Biggs led the R-rated ensemble comedy as Jim Levenstein. Fast forward two decades, and Biggs is reuniting with his co-stars on his new Fox series, Outmatched. Alyson Hannigan and Eddie Kaye Thomas are both guest-starring on Outmatched. Hannigan played Michelle Flaherty in American Pie, while Thomas took on the role of Paul Finch.
Alyson Hannigan and Eddie Kaye Thomas are both guest-starring on Outmatched. Hannigan played Michelle Flaherty in American Pie, while Thomas took on the role of Paul Finch. The two American Pie guest stars will be playing husband and wife, which Jason Biggs and Hannigan ended up playing as the American Pie franchise progressed. Check them out in their Outmatched parts below:
American Pie has some scenes that would not be accepted today. However, this promo from Outmatched appears to totally be cool. Am I the only one who laughed out loud when Maggie Lawson’s Kay said, “down to friend?" in the footage? I am not sure if Alyson Hannigan and Eddie Kaye Thomas’ characters are really hitting it off with Lawson and Biggs’ characters.
At one point in the Outmatched promo, the American Pie stars try to leave early in their “friend date.” Things should take some sort of positive turn, depending on who you ask. The kids of Jason Biggs’ Outmatched character apparently take umbrage with their parents’ relationship with their classmates’ parents. They think Alyson Hannigan and Eddie Kaye Thomas’s characters are “bad influences,” per EW.
It does appear that Alyson Hannigan’s character will throw back a red solo cup shot in the Outmatched episode. Is that in the middle of the day? It's hard to say if it comes before or after the "friend date."
There is one way to know for sure, and that is to watch the Outmatched episode when it airs Thursday, March 12. You have to suspect that Outmatched may work in a few inside jokes related to American Pie. Sort of like what Last Man Standing has done with Toy Story jokes in the past.
Either way, it is another big screen reunion win for the small screen. Seann William Scott has lined up a pilot at Fox, so maybe he can eventually swing by Outmatched. It would be neat to see Stifler and Jim sharing a scene. You just never know. Television is a rather limitless place right now. Hopefully, Alyson Hannigan and Eddie Kay Thomas are setting the trend.
Time will tell what ends up happening. It will not be too much longer before fans of American Pie get a chance to see three of its cast members reunite on the FOX sitcom. New episodes of Outmatched air Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox. The comedy is not the only show airing new! There are also this winter and spring’s premieres.
