The beautiful Dominican actress Dania Ramirez has just joined Universal Pictures American Reunion, says Variety. She’ll play Trisha, the ugly duckling nobody noticed in high school who has since grown into a beautiful swan – and a love interest for Finch (the character played by Eddie Kaye Thomas). I don’t see how it’s possible that Ramirez could ever have been an ugly duckling, but I’ll let it slide; this is a film coming from Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle) after all.
The pair are writing and directing the fourquel, which finds the original American Pie crew returning for their high school reunion and discovering that time or distance can’t break the bonds of friendship. Awww. Production is underway in Atlanta, Georgia and the film is on track to hit theaters on April 6, 2012.
