Biography

Playing the lust object in a raunchy teen sex comedy might have a restrictive effect on an acting career, but Shannon Elizabeth seemed to avoid that pitfall after her sexy debut in 1999's "American Pie. " After baring all for the hit feature, Elizabeth's easygoing personality was the focus in a string of screen comedies, including "Scary Movie" (2000) and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" (2001). TV also afforded her some choice appearances, most notably in a recurring role on "That '70s Show" (Fox, 1998-2006) and her own sitcom, "Cuts" (UPN, 2005-06). Between acting gigs, Elizabeth excelled as a prominent and successful figure at celebrity poker tournaments, as well as founded her own non-profit animal rescue organization - putting two of her greatest passions to good use by way of her "American Pie" celebrity.
