Parting Shot: “I go through trials, tribulations and tomfoolery,”
says Biggs, who continues his memorable humiliation schtick here. “As far
as building up courage to go for it, the [hardest] would, of course, be
the kiss. But as far as the more strenuous scene, that would be the Krazy
Glue.” The kiss, by the way, is with Seann
William Scott

she didn’t think Jim was that good)

experience. “I was really into it. Although Jason’s very anti-social; he
was actually shot on a green screen and was never there.”

Parting Shot: “I didn’t get to work with a lot of them the first time around, so this was the first time working with some of my friends — like Seann Scott, Natasha [Lyonne], Eddie [Kaye Thomas], the Shermenator [Chris Owen], Alyson [Hannigan] — and it was really great,” says Elizabeth. “There’s such a history there and they did so much for me the first time around, [so] that’s why you come back.

Parting Shot: “Some of the girls I hadn’t seen for two years, [but] Biggs, Eddie, Seann, I’ve seen those guys throughout,” recalls Klein. “Coming together was ‘Oh, hey, how are you? Let’s grab some pop tarts. It’s old friends, truly.”

Parting Shot: It’s not the end of Finch and Stifler’s encounters, particularly when Stifler must grab Finch’s derriere during the lesbian-dare scene. “[It’s] not so humiliating on my end,” says Thomas cheerfully. “I come out pretty clean. You see a little Eddie Kaye Thomas butt cheek.” Of his character, he says: “I think he’s on a different universe. It’s amazing that he can actually have conversations with these people. If he were walking this earth, he’d go pretty well unnoticed, ’cause he’s a freak.”

Parting Shot:: Where does Lyonne think her character wound up after American Pie 2? “Judging by this one, it seems she has quite a bit of a drinking problem,” she cracks. “I would sense maybe she, after going to AA meetings, she’s come out on the other side and is perhaps … a writer.”
