Cast members dish about ''American Pie'' 2

Great Stifler’s mom! The sequel promises to satisfy, but not with baked goods

American Pie: Vivian Zink

by William Keck and Mari Cartel

Despite warnings from Universal Studios to keep their pie holes shut about the August sequel to the $103 million grossing ”American Pie,” the cast is dishing on the plot, which is set a year into the gang’s college experience. ”They have me working in a band camp,” says Alyson Hannigan (”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), whose rootin’ tootin’ one liner floored ”Pie”’s audiences. ”With all those instruments, I’ll be quite content.”

Chris Klein, Mena Suvari, and Shannon Elizabeth are back — as is Jennifer Coolidge as the horny mom who, she says, ”tries to sleep with all the kids.” And Jason Biggs — who had to gain weight for the sequel, after slimming down for hunkier parts in ”Boys and Girls” and ”Saving Silverman” — says the dessert diddling will continue, with a textural twist: ”Lemon meringue, better consistency.” But ”Pie” 2 producer Paul Weitz, who directed the 1999 original, declares the sequel a no pie zone. ”This time pies are replaced with hardware,” he coyly notes. ”I can’t tell you more than that or they’ll kill me.”
