Band geek back

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

Han­ni­gan, 28, (pic­tured) ad­mits they had to twist her arm for her to ap­pear in the fourth Amer­i­can Pie film. The ac­tress reprises her role as band geek Michelle in Amer­i­can Pie: Re­union, along­side the orig­i­nal cast in­clud­ing Ja­son Biggs, Tara Reid, Chris Klein and Seann Wil­liam Scott. While she en­joyed work­ing on the fran­chise, Han­ni­gan was hes­i­tant to re­turn to the gross-out com­edy. ‘‘They def­i­nitely had to twist my arm,’’ she says. ‘‘But when the script fi­nally came in . . . they re­ally did such a great job. It was re­ally fun to go back in time.’’ She is now glad she de­cided to jump on the wagon for an­other in­stal­ment as she con­sid­ers it her favourite of the se­ries. ‘‘They just got it right this time,’’ she says. ‘‘They got the hu­mour and they got the heart. I love that they didn’t shy away from ac­tual is­sues that peo­ple in their 30s are go­ing through.’’ The new movie deals with the sex­ual slump her char­ac­ter and her hus­band Jim, played by Biggs, en­counter af­ter be­com­ing par­ents. ‘‘This is the re­union you would ac­tu­ally want to go to,’’ she says.
