'American Reunion' premiere: The gang's all here, one more time

American Reunion premiered in Hollywood on Monday

The cast of "American Pie" knows what a lot of people think when they hear that the gang from the 1999 teen classic is reuniting for yet another spin-off of the franchise: "Really? 'American Pie' again?"

At least that was actor Eddie Kaye Thomas' reaction to the news that Universal wanted to bring back the gang for "American Reunion," which hits theaters Friday and premiered Monday night at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

"That's probably not a good idea. Let's leave well enough alone," the actor recalled of his initial response.

After all, there have already been a handful of "American Pie" installments in recent years -- the second of which was the most successful. Two sequels hit theaters with the same cast, but then there were the four direct-to-DVD titles that followed featuring lesser-known actors.

Alyson Hannigan, the "How I Met Your Mother" star who in the movie plays the wife of Jason Biggs' character, said she liked the idea of a reunion but "worried that it wasn't going to be as good" as the first film.

"My favorite was always the original one, so I was just concerned," said the actress, who showed off her growing baby bump on the red carpet.

She and the rest of the cast said they were swayed into jumping back on board because of the quality of the "American Reunion" script, which tells the story of -- shocker -- the gang returning to its hometown to attend a high school reunion. The franchise also held a lot of sentimental value for its stars, since "American Pie" launched many of their careers in Hollywood.

Chris Klein, for one, said that when he landed the role of Oz more than a decade ago, he had "just enough money to last in this town for two more weeks."

"I was auditioning for acting roles, and I got cast in the very first 'American Pie,' which means I got to stay here," he said with a grin.

Tara Reid engaged, then married inside of two hours in Greece

Tara Reid, now married, showed off her engagement ring on TwitterTara Reid got engaged and then married to Zack Kehayov -- all in less than two hours Saturday, while on vacation in Greece.

Reid, who started her vacation in Greece on Aug. 6, announced the rapid-fire nuptial news via Twitter. She sent out a picture of the ring, above, on Monday.

There was initially confusion about the identity of the groom, with Reid's rep mistakenly saying the "American Pie" actress had married Danish businessman Michael Lillelund, a guy she'd broken up with in February after three months of dating.

"If she has married, then she hasn't married me, that's for sure," Lillelund told Starlounge. "If Tara has married, then I'll be the first to congratulate her."

The actress, who recently wrapped work on "American Reunion" previously was engaged to Internet entrepreneur Michael Axtmann but called off the wedding in April 2010.

"Just got married in greece I love being a wife!," Reid gushed Saturday -- which is good news, because at the rate this relationship is going, the honeymoon is almost definitely over by now.
