Angry Angel star Jason Biggs stopped by Entertainment Weekly: The Show and talked about some of his past roles, including his “first studio set experience” in the iconic teen movie American Pie. He recalls auditioning for “all of the teen comedies coming out” at the time and trying to explain the “weird” and unforgettable pie scene to his teen friends in New Jersey.
“I was like, ‘Yeah, man, it’s really funny,’ and they were like, ‘Okay dude, sure,'” said Biggs.
The actor also touched on his experience working on Saving Silverman opposite Jack Black and Steve Zahn, noting that it was hard not to laugh while working with “these two comedic geniuses.” Biggs also mentioned how working with Jenji Kohan, creator of Orange Is the New Black, was an “amazing experience.”
“Jenji is all about thinking outside the box and finding fresh faces or fresh uses of familiar faces,” said Biggs. “I credit her for saying, ‘You’re my guy and I’m excited to see you do this.'”
Angry Angel, “not your typical holiday movie,” also stars Brenda Song (The Suite Life of Zach & Cody) and it follows Allison Pyke (Song), a woman-turned-angel who is trying to get back to heaven but somehow can’t seem to get it right and is stuck on Earth. Biggs plays a heightened version of himself as Allison’s angel mentor, who is trying to guide her back to heaven as her love life gets in the way.
Angry Angel — directed by Jamie Travis and co-written by David Iserson — premieres Monday, Nov. 27 at 9 p.m. ET on Freeform.
