Jason Biggs was the actor tasked with bringing that infamous apple pie moment to life, and we can only imagine having a million questions for his director before he did the deed. That probably applies to most of his scenes in American pie because Jim, more than any other character, takes the brunt of the film’s fearful teenage outrage (no, the franchise).
