Once events unfold it’s hard not to get fatalistic about them and see their development as inevitable, and so it is that we now live in a world where it’s impossible to imagine an alternate reality where American Reunion ISN’T the highest-grossing film of all time with a record breaking opening weekend of 9 billion dollars. Go ahead and try to imagine that’s not the case. You can’t do it. But it’s not all dollar signs and history books for American Reunion. It’s also great ON SET PRANKS! From the HollywoodReporter:
While it’s been 13 years since the first film was released, the American Pie cast is still clearly very young at heart. Co-star Alyson Hannigan told THR that when the male stars get back together they “regress not even to high school but more like junior high.”
Klein told THR that he was the victim of a prank on his very first day on the American Reunion set.
“I immediately got hit in the balls,” he said. The perpetrator of the crime? Jason Biggs, who is not only starring in the fourth film, but is also an executive producer along with Seann William Scott.
Another incredible prank. That’s the thing about money and fame is that it frees you up to do other things with your time. You can really pour a lot of effort into passion projects like hitting Chris Klein in the balls. Months, YEARS, of planning just to get it right. And then all of that passion and art goes back into the work, making American Reunion the #1 movie in America for 10 years running. What a wonderful world. (Thanks for the tip, CaliforniaRocks.)
