JASON BIGGS: It was weird. We definitely miss them. But it was something that it just sort of made sense for the story, it was a natural progression of the story. You could tell even in the second movie that a lot of the characters were on the periphery of the storyline. It was almost borderline forced with some of the characters. Here in the third installment, it wouldve been forced; it would have been obvious. In order to concentrate on the wedding, it was just the natural way to go. Unfortunately, some of these characters fell by the wayside. We missed them. Was it noticeable on set? A bit, yeah, you know.
For me it was more about [Chris] Klein. Kleins a good buddy and I worked with him quite a bit in the first two films. I didnt work with any of the other girls. Shannon [Elizabeth] I worked with, so that whole story [of] not working with Shannon was for me a little bit more obvious that that was missing. But Alysons really the girl I worked with in the first two films and really liked working with. I mean, I liked working with Shannon, but Alyson was my girl. So, I had Alyson and it didnt matter. I missed Klein, though. I definitely missed Klein. But he understands as well as anybody. He was very much involved. It was his decision not to come back. He got it better than anybody that Oz just didnt make sense here.
Did you miss the flute?
ALYSON HANNIGAN: No, actually, I didnt. I will never live that down. Ill always hear it. My poor kids.
Do either of you have a favorite moment from the Pie movies?
ALYSON HANNIGAN: My personal favorite would be my scene with Eugene [Levy] because that was the first time in all three movies that I actually had a scene with him. I didnt meet Eugene until the premiere of the second movie. I hadnt met him.
How was working on Jersey Girl with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez?
JASON BIGGS: It was cool. The media attention was pretty wild. All of my scenes were just with Ben so I only saw Ben and Jennifer together at brief moments. There was always a presence of the paparazzi around, but it was pretty fascinating. It was pretty wild to see. It was my first experience with that kind of consistent press presence. It was pretty wild. But working on the film was terrific. Kevin Smith is fantastic; hes brilliant and one of the nicest guys. It was a great experience being on the film. I had just a smaller supporting role. I was a visitor to the set but everyone welcomed me with open arms. Its a supporting role versus a cameo [like I did] in Jay and Silent Bob.
