It's been almost 13 years since "American Pie" introduced movie audiences to a slew of up-and-coming young actors and their wacky, pie-assaulting, flute-abusing characters. Now they're back again with "American Reunion," and TODAY's Matt Lauer sat down with Chris Klein, Alyson Hannigan, Tara Reid and Eugene Levy on Wednesday to see if they're up to their old hijinks.
"I love a good hijink," said Levy, deadpanning, then adding that the cast actually were quite sober and real pros, compared to their characters. "On the first 'American Pie' the one thing that I noticed about this group of extremely talented young actors was how professional they were on the set. And of course, 13 years later, they're still the most professional people to work with on the set."
Hannigan (who currently stars on "How I Met Your Mother") admitted she felt she'd changed the most out of the group, thanks to motherhood. "I have a kid and one on the way, and I just feel old," she said.
(Though not too old. She had told Martha Stewart, who appeared on the show to discuss Easter crafts, that she was building a craft room in her home -- and stuck around to decorate eggs later on.)
Reid, Klein and Hannigan are winning personalities, but it was Levy who stole the interview, going along with Lauer's reveal that his widowed character smokes dope with another character's mother. "We used to refer to it as getting high," said Levy. "From what I read back in the '60s."
He also admitted that joining "Reunion" meant a break from his usual routine: "I'm tired of being a sex symbol. I want to do something else. I'm only one man."
