The original American Pie came to define a generation of high schoolers, and now, 13 years later, the cast is teaming up for American Reunion. We recently caught up with the stars of the movie, including Seann William Scott and Eddie Kaye Thomas, and parental pair Eugene Levy and Jennifer Coolidge, who have been frequent collaborators and costars for decades. Jennifer talked about how being Stifler's mom changed her dating life forever, while Seann and Eddie weighed in on Jason Biggs's much-talked-about nude scene and how their characters have — or haven't — changed since their teenage years. Catch our interview and see American Reunion in theaters on April 6.
Ready for another helping of pie? Jason Biggs, Sean William Scott, and Eugene Levy have all negotiated deals for a fourth American Pie film titled, American Reunion. We first heard rumblings of a fourquel over a year ago, but with this latest news, it appears the film has gotten the green light. So which other cast members should sign on next?
Universal has reportedly reached out to Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari, and Jennifer Coolidge, but they're definitely not the only actors I'd like to see return. What about Eddie Kaye Thomas, better known as Finch? Certainly they can't have Stifler's mom without her much younger sex buddy. Alyson Hannigan is also a must (just imagine if Michelle and Jim are parents!). Place your pick for who you'd most like to see reprise their role.
Ryan Reynolds took the stage at Club Largo in LA last night to do a reading for Celebrity Autobiography: In Their Own Words. He was joined by other celebs like Matthew Perry to read from memoirs of fellow Hollywood stars that may not have been intended as funny but take on a new meaning when read aloud to the audience. Ryan and his big smile provided lots of laughs, and we're excited to see his sense of humor this weekend in The Proposal.

The newest Cirque du Soleil show, Wintuk, premiered at MSG last night bringing out some of our most favorite new TV stars — Blake Lively and Ed Westwick (Serena and Chuck) from Gossip Girl. In case you missed all the in depth coverage of last night's episode (which was amazing, btw), check it out here. Also out to see the whimsical new show was Abigail Breslin, Leelee Sobieski's tights and cute Hunter Parish, who plays Silas on Weeds. There's no fun like watching a few good hours of crazy, crazy flexible people bouncing around in elaborate costumes, right?

"LA's newest implants" aren't of the silicone kind; they're Sean McNamara and Christian Troy, who are making the leap from Miami to Los Angeles in tonight's season premiere of Nip/Tuck. And while the new city provides a welcome change of scenery, the satisfaction is for the viewer only as business isn't exactly booming at the McNamara/Troy office. In fact, the two men find themselves without any clients at all and must resort to hiring a publicist to get their practice rolling. The publicist (played by Lauren Hutton) tells the duo that they must perform surgery on celebrities to create buzz.
Celebrities creating buzz is a mantra that the show has certainly taken to heart. Tonight's episode has bevy of celebrity cameos including Hutton, Tia Carrere, Bradley Cooper, Oliver Platt, and Craig Bierko, but it is Jennifer Coolidge who steals the show. She plays a patient on the TV show the doctors are hired to consult for called Hearts 'N Scalpels. It's a show-within-a-show format that is smart, funny, and, best of all, a satire of Nip/Tuck itself.
With the move to LA and the onslaught of celebrity cameos, I'm hoping that there is enough realistic drama to save Nip/Tuck from the strained slump that was season four. Tonight's episode is definitely a step in the right direction, which is good, as I know I'm not the only one who misses the good ol' Carver days!

Christopher Guest and his large dedicated cast came out for the LA premiere of For Your Consideration last night at the Director's Guild of America. If you are a fan of Waiting for Guffman or Best in Show, word is, you are going to love this film. That's because this time Guest sets his satirical sights on Hollywood! The film is about the negative effect that internet-generated Oscar buzz has on the cast of an independent film. How perfect for us, and just in time for Oscar season! Guest’s ensemble cast is back including Eugene Levy (who also co-wrote the film with Guest) Catherine O’Hara, Parker Posey, Jennifer Coolidge, and Harry Shearer. In limited release November 17th.
