Alyson Hannigan in the mix for “American Reunion”

By Sean O’Connell Of all the “American Pie” veterans, Alyson Hannigan might be the hardest one to lure back for a sequel because, you know, she has a legitimate career.

The award-winning actress currently is cleaning up as an ensemble member of CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother,” so has no real demand to leap to the big screen. But while most may know her for “Mother” or even “Buffy,” Hannigan owes a bit of her success to the “American” franchise, so it makes sense that she’d return for a reunion and pay her respects.

Deadline’s saying Hannigan will join Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Eugene Levy and other “American Pie” alums for “American Reunion.”

But as they point out, Hannigan had some leverage as the story “revolves around her marriage and child with Jason Biggs’ character.”

So the “Pie” franchise is trying to grow up. Not too much, I’m sure, as they’re going to want to appeal to the core, crass audience. Maybe the filmmakers will town the Judd Apatow line? Anyway, I’m glad Hannigan’s on board. She’s a great talent, and the sequel’s instantly better with her involved.
