It seems like just yesterday that Jason Biggs shocked the world with his dessert-related antics in "American Pie," but it's actually been 20 years since the comedy debuted in theaters. In honor of the film's big anniversary on July 9, 2019, find out what Jim, Stifler and the rest of the gang have been up to since 1999…
Jason Biggs starred as Jim Levenstein, an awkward and sexually inexperienced high school senior, in "American Pie."
Jason Biggs went on to star in the "American Pie" sequels, "Anything Else," "Jersey Girl," "Over Her Dead Body" and "My Best Friend's Girl." After years of struggling to recreate his nerdy image, he finally scored a major career comeback in 2013 when he won the role of Larry Bloom on the hit comedy "Orange Is the New Black." He more recently starred in 2018's "Dear Dictator" and will appear on the FOX sitcom "Outmatched" in 2020. In 2008, Jason married writer-actress Jenny Mollen. The duo welcomed their first child, son Sid, in February 2014. Their second son, Lazlo, was born in 2017.
Shannon Elizabeth starred as Nadia (left), the sexy Czech foreign exchange student who taught teenagers an important lesson about mixing sex with webcams, in "American Pie."
After "American Pie," Shannon Elizabeth took her sexy comedienne shtick to "Scary Movie," "That '70s Show," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and more. In 2005, Shannon parted ways with her husband of three years, actor Joseph D. Reitman. She competed on Season 6 of "Dancing With the Stars" in 2008 and fell for her partner, professional ballroom dancer Derek Hough. After that relationship bit the dust, Shannon started pursuing her love of high-stakes poker tournaments and has won big at the World Series of Poker. In early 2014, she was briefly linked to music mogul Russell Simmons. Next up, she'll star as Justice in the 2019 flick "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot."
Thomas Ian Nicholas played Kevin Myers, Jim's friend who's desperate to lose his virginity to girlfriend Vicky, in "American Pie."
Though Thomas Ian Nicholas continues acting, he's also found success with his other passion — music. He's released a handful of albums with his eponymous band and one of their tracks even made it onto the "American Reunion" soundtrack. He more recently appeared in 2018's "Nightmare Shark" and will appear in "Zeroville" in 2019. In 2007, he married DJ Colette Marino. They welcomed a son, Nolan River, in October 2011, and a daughter in April 2016.
Tara Reid played Vicky Lathum, Kevin's girlfriend, in "American Pie."
In the wake of her newfound fame after "American Pie" came out, Tara Reid palled around with Paris Hilton and gained a reputation as a party girl. She also dated and got engaged to "TRL" host Carson Daly, but marriage wasn't in the cards for these two. Her career — and personal life — soon took a downturn. She struggled to find work outside of the teen rom-com genre, eventually turning to reality TV with appearances on "Celebrity Big Brother" and "Taradise." In 2006, Tara made headlines when she admitted to having a botched breast implant surgery and liposuction procedure, which she later tried to have fixed. Two years later, the troubled party girl went to rehab, reportedly for alcohol abuse. Sadly, her erratic behavior didn't end there. In 2011, she concocted a fake marriage to a Bulgarian financier. She later dated Infected Mushroom musician Erez Eisen. She scored a career comeback with the cult-comedy "Sharknado" TV movie franchise in 2013. She's since appeared in five "Sharknado" sequels, most recently in 2018's "The Last Sharknado: It's About Time."
Eddie Kaye Thomas (center) starred as self-styled sophisticate Paul Finch, who slept with Stifler's mom, in "American Pie."
Eddie Kaye Thomas went on to re-team with "American Pie" co-star John Cho on several projects, including three installments of the "Harold & Kumar" franchise. He's also appeared in a handful of off-Broadway productions, starred on "How to Make It in America" and has voiced Barry Robinson, the son on "American Dad," since 2005. He more recently starred on the CBS series "Scorpion" from 2014 to 2018. He and longtime love Ari Graynor parted ways in 2012, and the following year, Eddie made headlines when a woman he reportedly picked up from a Los Angeles diner threatened him with a knife and then barricaded herself in his home. Yikes!
Seann William Scott starred as Steve Stifler, a popular jock who loves to party, in 1999's "American Pie."
After playing Stifler, Seann William Scott struggled to break away from playing wild characters in raunchy comedies, leading to unsatisfying roles in films like "Road Trip," "Dude, Where's My Car?" and "The Dukes of Hazzard." In 2011, Scott underwent a radical life makeover: He admitted himself to rehab for undisclosed issues, appeared in the critically acclaimed film "Goon" and got engaged to his model girlfriend, Lindsay Frimodt. But they never made it down the aisle: Seann and Lindsay called it quits in 2013. Seann has more recently starred on FOX's TV-series reboot of "Lethal Weapon" and is set to appear in "Already Gone" in 2019.
Jennifer Coolidge starred as Stifler's mom — who memorably seduces her son's frenemy, Finch — in "American Pie."
Since her star-making turn in "American Pie," Jennifer Coolidge has landed a slew of funny roles in everything from "Legally Blonde" and "2 Broke Girls" to the "Friends" spin-off "Joey," "Best in Show" and more! She more recently guest starred on a 2019 episode of "The Cook Kids" and appeared in Ariana Grande's video for "thank u, next." Even though she's best known for her role as a seductress, the actress has managed to keep her real love life surprisingly under wraps. In late 2013, she admitted to The Guardian that she was involved in a year-and-a-half-long relationship with a man she described as "the whole package." But she hasn't always been so lucky in love: "I did date younger men after ['American Pie']," she told The Guardian. "I really dated younger men for the next 10, 15 years." One of those guys was "Saturday Night Live" comedian Chris Kattan.
Chris Klein starred as Chris "Oz" Ostreicher, an attractive jock with a sensitive side, in "American Pie."
After "American Pie," Chris Klein hooked up with — and subsequently got engaged to — "Dawson's Creek" darling Katie Holmes, making him one half of America's most adorable young couple. Happily ever after wasn't in the cards for Katie and Chris, however, and they broke up in 2005. Shortly afterward, Chris was arrested for DUI. After a second offense in 2010, the actor checked into rehab for alcoholism. Since then, Chris has led a much more quiet and healthy lifestyle. "Today I'm the luckiest guy alive," a sober Chris told People in 2012, the same year he got together with travel agent Laina Rose Thyfault, whom he married in 2015. They welcomed son Frederick Easton in 2016 and daughter Isla Rose in 2018. Chris has notably appeared in "American Pie 2," "American Wedding," "Just Friends" and "Wilfred." In 2018, he joined the cast of The CW's "The Flash."
Mena Suvari played choir girl Heather, who falls for Chris Klein's jock Oz, in "American Pie."
Mena Suvari had a hard time finding new types of roles after starring in "American Pie" and "American Beauty." Though she continues to work regularly, she's yet to re-create her early success. She's appeared in "Rumor Has It," "Stuck," "American Horror Story," "Six Feet Under" and "South of Hell." Mena has been married three times. First to cinematographer Robert Brinkmann, whom she divorced in 2005, and then to concert producer Simone Sestito, with whom she parted ways in January 2012 after just 18 months of marriage. She found love again with Michael Hope, whom she married in 2018.
Natasha Lyonne starred as Jessica, Vicky's sexually experienced friend, in "American Pie."
Natasha Lyonne has built a steady career in Hollywood since her "American Pie" days. She starred in the "American Pie" sequels, "Blade: Trinity" and "Robots" but soon became best known for her critically acclaimed role on Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black," for which she received an Emmy nomination. She's currently starring on Netflix's "Russian Doll," on which she also serves as a co-creator, executive producer and writer. Natasha, who's been open about her battles with drug and alcohol addictions, has been dating "Saturday Night Live" alum Fred Armisen since 2014.
John Cho starred as John, one of the "MILF" guys, in "American Pie."
John Cho went on to headline the "Harold & Kumar" film franchise after "American Pie." But that's not all! He's also portrayed Sulu in the rebooted "Star Trek" movie franchise and appeared in a supporting role on the "Sleepy Hollow" TV series and scored a leading role on the short-lived ABC sitcom "Selfie." He more recently starred in 2018's "Searching" and is next set to star on Netflix's "Cowboy Bebop" live-action series. In 2006, John wed actress Kerri Higuchi.

Alyson Hannigan starred as Michelle Flaherty, a sexually liberated band camp geek, in "American Pie."
