Why Jason Biggs Is Glad He's a Dad to Boys When It Comes to Explaining His American Pie Scenes
Movie night at Jason Biggs' house may get pretty awkward when his two sons decide to check out American Pie
The actor dropped by PEOPLE Now, where he described how he expects 3½-year-old son Sid and 8-week-old Lazlo to find out about the memorable scene from the 1999 comedy — where his dad, played by Eugene Levy, catches him experimenting with a freshly baked pie in the kitchen.
“I picture a scenario where it’s like — I don’t know what grade, hopefully a little bit older —but one of his friends can come in and be like, ‘Hey, I saw your dad’s penis on TV last night!’ ” the 39-year-old says. “That’s a very real possibility for our life.”

No matter how awkward that moment will be, Biggs is relieved that he won’t have to explain the situation to daughters.
“I’ve only thought of it in regards to I’m glad that I have boys versus girls,” he says. “I don’t know how it’s going to go down, but I know that no matter how it goes down, it’s going to be easier having sons than it would have been having girls.”
The flick could also come in handy when it comes time to talk about the birds and the bees with his boys. “I could just show him the scene of me getting ‘the talk’ from Eugene in American Pie,” Biggs says. “I can be like, ‘Son, sit. It’s time for us to have “the talk.” Anyway, play.’ ”
“He likes Lazlo — the good news is if he’s having issues, which we think he is, he’s not taking it out on Lazlo, which is good,” he says. “He is, however, acting like a crazy person with Jenny and I. He’s definitely not thrilled with us.”
Biggs and Mollen, 38, are having to field quite the reactions from the toddler during the latter’s transition into his role as a big brother.
“This morning, [Sid] clawed my face,” admits the Orange Is the New Black star. “I have makeup [on] now, but I was like, ‘Really, dude? You knew I had to go do press today and you decided to claw my beautiful face.’ ”

Fortunately for Sid’s parents, Christmas is right around the corner — which means Kris Kringle is a great motivator to get him to behave.
“I am milking the s— out of, like, ‘You sure you don’t wanna listen to me right now? Because Santa’s watching,’ ” says Biggs. “When he’s really misbehaving or not listening, I’ll whip my phone out and I’ll be like, ‘I’m gonna record you. I’m gonna text Santa.’ ”
“He’s like, ‘Sorry Daddy!’ And I’m like, ‘Whoa, this is genius,’ ” he continues, adding that this is the first year the concept of Santa Claus has really resonated with Sid. “What happens on Dec. 26, I have no idea, but it’s a good two months’ worth of obeying.”
