The very lovely Alyson Hannigan has been chatting about the upcoming fourth American Pie movie, American Reunion. Pretty much the entire original cast will come together again for their high school reunion – and Alyson’s made us feel both nostalgic and excited about the film.
The How I Met Your Mother and Buffy The Vampire Slayer actress sat down for a chat with Ew.com and spilled the beans on what’s up with her character Michelle and her on-screen hubby Jim, played by Jason Biggs;
“We’ll, we’re still married, and we have a child. So we’re navigating the waters of parenthood and how that changes the dynamics of a relationship. But also they’re going back to their high school reunion and so there’s some nostalgia there of, “Aw, remember what we were like when we first met?” That kind of stuff. It’s really nice. I really love that relationship and they’ve stayed true to it. The great thing about this franchise is that, of course, there’s the raunchy humour but here’s also a lot of heart to it. And this fourth movie does not miss the boat on that at all.”
Alyson also talked about meeting up with her old cast-mates for the first time in years;
“You know, I haven’t seen most of those guys for, goodness, we couldn’t even figure it out — probably, like, eight years or something. And more for the ladies. It’s a little strange, because you’ve kept up with them in the media. Like, everybody knew I had a kid. But it was really nice. We got to show pictures! It was one of those things where the dynamic with everyone is as if no time that has passed. You instantly get along.”
With American Reunion just filming now, we’ve got no news on a release date, but are you excited to see the follow-up to American Pie: The Wedding (we’re not counting all the straight to DVD movies as proper Pie films)? We totally are.
